Community Choices, Your Voices
Congressional District No. 10
Republican Primary Candidate Forum
Dec. 3, 2013
The Student Activities Center Magnolia Ballroom was the venue for the second in a series of political candidate forums organized by student organizations, the Department of Government & Sociology and the American Democracy Project. An audience of 170 listened to the candidates answer five questions prepared by student organizations and another five posed by audience members through a Twitter feed. A straw poll concluded the event with Garry Gerrard winning with 29% followed by Steven Simpson, 26%, Mike Collins, 22%, Jody Hice 16%, and Brian Slowinski, 5%.
The Community Choices, Your Voices candidate forum series will continue in the new year as we invite Georgia candidates running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Saxby Chambliss.
