With great regret, we have decided to cancel the Candidate Forum scheduled for March 21 in Ellijay.
Although we have had no cases of CoV-19 in Gilmer County, we believe it is our civic duty to follow the recommendations of local health officials to cancel large gatherings. We have sold more than 130 seats to the forum and would be shoulder-to-shoulder in the auditorium were we to go through with it.
In the unlikely event that the virus is under control here before the May 19 primary, and with enough time to re-plan the event, you will be notified.
We thank you sincerely for your agreement to speak at the Forum and wish you much success in your campaign.
With warm wishes and continuing commitment to the Blue Wave, I am
Sincerely yours, Melba Gandy, Chai
