Patty Payne is one amazing women. Thanks to her efforts and her vision, on Saturday, several North Georgia counties will come together to BBQ the candidates. Okay, check that. I mean for BBQ and to meet the candidates. Democrats who are running for constitutional offices will be present and so will local elected officials. Come, for a great time, great food and to support the Franklin County Democratic Party.

Democratic candidates for statewide office will address the Northeast Georgia Democratic BBQ at the Harmony Hill Arena outside Royston. BBQ plates will be served beginning at 4:30pm for $10. This is a great opportunity for Northeast Georgia to come out and hear where Democrats want to take the state, said Patty Payne, Chair of the Franklin County Democratic Party. And there's nothing better than an old-fashioned political BBQ to hear their ideas. There will be music, door prizes and plenty of opportunities for citizens to speak with candidates personally as they mingle with the crowd. We are also thrilled to have Franklin County's own representatives, Rep. Jeanette Jamieson (D-Toccoa) and Rep. Alan Powell (D-Hartwell), said Frank Dunson, co-chair of the Franklin County Democratic Party. "All citizens, all voters, regardless of their party preference, are invited to this barbeque to meet the candidates," he continued. For further information, telephone 706-356-2253.
