"LET THE GAMES BEGIN” says Pickens County GOP, as they will have their meeting on March 11th with a CANDIDATE FORUM at the Pickens County Administration Building, 1266 E. Church Street, beginning at 7 p.m.
When Nancy Jester kicked off her campaign for Georgia State School Superintendent last November she said she believes,
"Georgia should provide an on-ramp into a solid, middle class life," but Jester said for many it's not happening. "With only 67 percent as our graduation rate, too many children aren't making it to that road because that on-ramp is broken ... Together we can refocus Georgia's educational spending and priorities. Together we can teach our children about freedom and make sure they inherit it through a solid and meaningful education, and today, together we can start to put the classroom first."
Now the Pickens County Republican Party is proud to have Mrs. Jester in Jasper at the March 11th monthly meeting to have a chance to talk with parents, teacher, students and all to convince them she is the right person for the job.
This meeting will also hosts the District 1 (Western Pickens) Commissioner candidates: Jerry Barnes (Incumbent) and Bart Connelly, Challenger to discuss their views on what needs to happen in Pickens County.
The 3 incumbent members of the Pickens County School Board, Wendy Lowe, Byron Long and Dan Fincher (presently unchallenged) will be here to make their views available for the direction of Pickens County Schools.
All candidates will be available for questions after their short presentations.
So mark your calendar for Tuesday, March 11th, 7 p.m. at the Pickens County Administration Building, 1266 E. Church Street, beginning at 7 p.m.
