The Gwinnett County Republican Party and Gwinnett Young Republicans are sponsoring a candidate forum for the state school superintendent candidates. The candidate forum will take place Thursday, April 17, 2014, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center (75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046). Mike Moore, news anchor at CBS Radio-V-103/WAOK, will act as the forum’s moderator.
Gwinnett GOP Chairman Rachel Little said, “In what has become a highly active electoral cycle, the state school superintendent race is proving to be one of the most competitive. The Gwinnett County Republican Party state school superintendent candidate forum will give each candidate in attendance the opportunity to state their positions within the state school superintendent race and to answer questions.” Candidates agreeing to attend the forum include Mary Kay Bacallao, Ashley Bell, Mike Buck, Sharyl Dawes, Allen Fort, Nancy Jester, Fitz Johnson and Kira Willis.
The state school superintendent forum will be followed by a straw poll where participants can cast votes for candidates.

As you are all aware, the Georgia General Assembly is well on its way in what promises to be one of the shortest legislative sessions in recent memory.
