Former Atlanta city councilwoman and mayoral candidate Mary Norwood, denied a place on Tuesday ballot as an independent, has come out for Republican Steve Broadbent in his challenge to Democratic incumbent John Eaves for chairmanship of the Fulton County Commission.
If there’s a huge GOP turnout on Tuesday, this is one of the races that could turn at the high-water mark. She doesn’t mention Broadbent’s party affiliation in her robo-call:
”This is Mary Norwood, calling to respectfully ask for your support for Steve Broadbent to be the chair of Fulton County. I believe that Steve will do what is best for the future of Fulton County, and Steve will protect the interests of all Fulton County citizens.
“Steve is a leader that understands Fulton County government must be reformed, and that we must take the lead in ensuring that reform. Again, this is Mary Norwood, asking for your consideration to vote for Steve Broadbent for Fulton County chair.”
What you may not know: Norwood is also supporting Democrat Ken Hodges in the race for attorney general.
