Democratic candidates for statewide office will address the Northeast Georgia Democratic BBQ at the Harmony Hill Arena outside Royston. BBQ plates will be served beginning at 4:30pm for $10.

"This is a great opportunity for Northeast Georgia to come out and hear where Democrats want to take the state," said Patty Payne, Chair of the Franklin County Democratic Party.

Alan Powell (D-Hartwell)," said Frank Dunson, co-chair of the Franklin County Democratic Party.
