In lieu of the in-person Candidate Forum that had been planned, due to the Corona virus lockdowns and “stay-at-home” orders, the Cobb County Republican Assembly hosted an online Zoom Interview with each of the candidates for Cobb County Commission Chairman: Ricci Mason, Larry Savage, and Mike Boyce. The interviews were a part of an Electronic Endorsement Convention we hosted to enable our members to vote on endorsement without having to attend in person so as not to have to potentially spread the virus. Now you can watch the entire video on YouTube here:
The Cobb County Republican Assembly is pleased to invite you to attend a Candidate Forum with the candidates in the Republican Primary who have qualified for the office of Cobb County Commission Chair.
For those who haven’t been able to share their concerns at the Town Hall Meetings being held by Cobb County Commission Chair Mike Boyce about the proposed property tax increase, and for those who want to know more than has been disclosed about the causes of the budget shortfall, citizens Jan Barton and Debbie Fisher organized a Citizen Town Hall Meeting. They invited former Cobb County Commissioner Bill Byrne, former Cobb County Commission candidate Larry Savage, and Cobb County Republican Assembly Chairman Nathaniel Darnell to serve on their panel for the event and answer questions.
Cobb GRA 1st Vice President Scott McDaniel and Chairman Nathaniel Darnell participated today in the newly elected Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce‘s swearing in ceremony. Immediately after forming as an official chapter of the Georgia Republican Assembly, the Cobb County Republican Assembly’s first act was to unanimously endorse Mike Boyce over incumbent Tim Lee in the Republican Primary run-off. The Cobb County Republican Assembly (“Cobb GRA”) wanted to send a clear message that they are against the tax increases that Tim Lee pushed through behind the backs of the citizens of Cobb County to advance the “crony capitalist” activity of subsidizing the billionaire owner of the Atlanta Braves with tax-dollars to the tune of $400 million. Our members went door-to-door, made phone calls, put out yard signs, and helped to get out the vote for Mike Boyce.
Chairman Mike Boyce had pledged not to commit the same blunders as his predecessor Tim Lee.
We congratulate Mr. Boyce and will look to see him improve the policy of the Cobb County Commission.
