Is Michael King doing such a good job in his district that he can claim victory already? Pretty much from day one, the District 4 school board representative has had issues, specifically ethics violations. Nevertheless, he believes this is a “non-issue” that will not factor into his forthcoming reelection. How anyone can say or believe that any ethics violation isn’t an issue after all the CCPS drama, I don’t know.
Recently, an old lawsuit came back to haunt District 4 candidate Jewel Scott, alleging that while serving as district attorney she fired an employee who dared run for office against her husband Lee Scott, who is also a (Republican) candidate for the same District 4 commission seat.
While there are candidates who give voters pause, there are also new faces looking for voter support going into November.
With the primary elections coming up on July 20, do you already know who you’re voting for – or not voting for? Do you know where candidates in your district stand on issues that matter to you?
You can find out who the Clayton candidates are and where they stand at the Georgia Voter Guide produced by the League of Women Voters of Georgia.
