Candidates Remind Residents That There Is Still A Race To Be Won
Far less than 200 residents living in Georgia’s 30th Senate district cast advanced ballots for the 4th round of that race on Wednesday—the first day to do so. 142 of those ballots were cast in Carroll County alone according to Elections Supervisor, Becky Deese.
Both candidates in that race acknowledge that it’s a tough task to get voters out this one last time. Libertarian candidate James Camp said on Wednesday’s WLBB Community Voice program that he believes that “the super-voters… the people who turn out regularly to vote are aware of the election but your average voter is not.” Camp concludes that some voters think “that this was a sealed-deal back in November.”
With the late conclusion of this race which began this past August, both men realize that the winner would have only a few days to prepare for his first legislative session following next Tuesday’s final election count.
“I’ve done a couple of different things (for preparation),” said Republican candidate, Mike Dugan. “Upcoming legislation is available on the state website. Also, a program called the Biennial; if you are elected, you are invited. If you are not elected—and neither of us are—you can pay your way to see what is coming up for the next couple of years. I paid my way to sit with them to see where the priorities were and to meet the people on both sides of the aisle.”
Both Dugan and Camp were guests on Wednesday’s WLBB Community Voice program which is available now on our website.
