Just received an e-mail invitation to a press confernce for State Rep Roberta Abdul Salaam (D-Clayton County, District 74). She’s announcing a run for the Clayton County Commission:
Clayton County Legislative Delegation Chairperson Representative Roberta Abdul Salaam (D-74 ) announces her candidacy for Chairperson of the Clayton County Commission at a campaign kick-off press conference and reception on Monday. Touting a strong record of leadership on a national,state, and local level, Representative Abdul-Salaam seeks to apply her passion and dedication for Clayton County directly as the lead of the Board of Commissioners. Residents from all overthe state will be in attendance.
The subject line of the email indicates that she will be stepping down from her House seat.
Someone who attends the 5:00pm presser will have to tell us if that means immediately, or upon qualifying which will be after this session of the General Assembly comes to an end. I’ve received an email clairification that Rep. Salaam will finish the session and step down afterwards to qualify for the new seat.
