On the cusp of one of the most important election-cycles in Georgia history, ACCDC presents Dinner & Conversation with the U.S. Senate Candidates on Veteran’s Day, Monday, November 11, at the Cotton Press in Athens, Georgia. Attendees will get the unique opportunity to hear from invited candidates Sarah Riggs Amico, Jon Ossoff, Mayor Ted Terry, and Mayor Teresa Tomlinson about their vision for Georgia and the United States.
Dinner & Conversation with the U.S. Senate Candidates will begin at 6:15pm (doors at 5:45pm) on Monday, November 11 at the Cotton Press. Attendees will be treated to a delicious family-style dinner as they hear conversations between candidates and our special guests. After hearing from the candidates and finishing apple pie for dessert, attendees are invited to mingle with the candidates and continue the conversations during our meet-and-greet.
“This is the first, and possibly only, time that Athenians and the people of northeast Georgia will be able to see all of the Senatorial candidates in one location,” says Denise Ricks, Chair of the Athens-Clarke County Democratic Committee. “It is an opportunity to witness a one on one, in depth conversation with each candidate and have them answer submitted questions. We know voters want to hear where the candidates stand on healthcare, foreign policy, education, and the environment. This is your chance to hear about those issues and to get answers to your questions!”
The 2020 elections will decide the Presidency, not one but both U.S. Senate seats for Georgia, along with every Georgia Congressional, State House, and State Senate seat.
“Make no mistake, the stakes of the 2020 elections are enormous” says Georgia State Representative and Democratic Caucus Leader Bob Trammell. “ Elections have consequences, and the election before redistricting has consequences for the next decade. We can not afford for anyone to sit out democracy in 2020. All hands on deck.”
Seats are limited. Single seat tickets and tables may be purchased at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/accdcsenatedinner
