The competition just got a little smaller.
Candidate for Gwinnett County Commission Chair Timothy Swiney has dropped out of the race to replace outgoing County Commission Chair Charles Bannister citing family reasons. We're sad to see the field reduce itself before any campaigning begins, but family is family and that's hell off a lot more important than politics. Good on you Mr. Swiney and we'll be looking out for you in the future.
That means that the current race has become a two way affair between Libertarian Will Costa (Good Guy) and Charlotte Nash (Career Appratchick), the three remaining candidates are still in stealth mode as of today with no further web presence than they had last week.
In additional news, the Gwinnett County GOP will host a two hour forum for however many candidates are left on 24 JAN 11at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration center on Langley Drive in downtown Larryville. OK, Lawrenceville. They listed Will as a candidate, will they invite him to the forum?
