Henderson, Handel to meet with voters

With the May 20 Primary seemingly around the corner, and early voting beginning April 28, state and local candidates are working to sway voters.

Newton County Commissioner J.C. Henderson is hosting a Town Hall meeting March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Nelson Heights Community Center, 7200 Laseter St., Covington.

Henderson said the public is invited to ask him any questions and he’ll provide answers. Topics Henderson plans to discuss include 2011 SPLOST projects for District 4, which contains the west half of Covington, Oxford and portions along Brown Bridge Road and Ga. Highway 142, and future projects.

Handel meet-and-greet

U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel will host a meet- and-greet Monday from 3-4 p.m. at Square Perk Café on the square in Covington.

Local campaign supporter Bronwyn Jennings said the event will be causal, and voters are welcome to come to talk to Handel and ask her questions.

Jennings said the campaign team is working hard, with supporters making more than 11,000 calls across the state during a recent phone-banking event.

According to the Georgia Secretary of State’s website, Handel is one of seven Republicans to qualify to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss, while four Democrats have also qualified.

The Georgia Republican Party is hosting its fourth debate for the Senate seat this Saturday, at 6 p.m., in Macon at Anderson Conference Center.
