The clock is ticking for Brad Bryant to get the signatures he needs to get on the ballot. Here’s a bit of a press release he sent out today.
Atlanta, GA – The ballot access petition drive for Georgia Schools Superintendent Brad Bryant announced today that its offices will be open 24 hours beginning at 7am on Monday morning for the final stretch of its collection drive.
The campaign office is located next to Northlake Mall at 2296 Henderson Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30345. The office has a notary present to notarize petitions, and is providing an opportunity for both walk-in signatures and pick up of petition packages. Additionally, the campaign continues to recruit full time petition collectors.
As of this morning, over 20,000 signed petitions have been collected, putting the campaign near the halfway point. However, the majority of the volunteer signature collectors have not yet turned in their petitions, and over 150 collectors continue to get new signatures on a non-stop basis.
“The grassroots response to our call for hope and opportunity for Georgia’s kids has been outstanding. However, the success of this effort will literally hang in the balance for the next 36 hours. It is absolutely critical that everyone who has been collecting signatures turns their sheets into the campaign as soon as possible. Additionally, we hope every Georgian who cares about education in our state will take the time to visit our office, sign a petition, and pick up some copies to share with friends and neighbors,” said Bryant.
