Valdosta State University gave the
American Association of University Women
Powell Hall for this candidate forum last Thursday, September 21, 2017.
Why they held it in a dark room with bad acoustics, I don’t know,
but at least you can see the candidates and other speakers.
Here are links to each LAKE video, followed by a LAKE video playlist.
Yes, you may use one of these videos or clips in your political ad,

announcement in the VDT.
On Friday, October 5th I will be hosting a fundraiser called
“Rockin’ for a Cause” to help fight illiteracy in South
Georgia. Working with Dr. Marty Williams and Charlie Oliver, we hope
to raise $6,000 for the Literacy Volunteer Program (LVP) of South
Georgia. The LVP provides one-to-one tutoring to improve the
reading, writing, and arithmetic skills of functionally illiterate
individuals 16 years of age and older in South Central Georgia.
The ticket price for the event is $20 and includes an evening of
good-time music from The Backstreet Blazers band, one raffle ticket
for a chance to win a variety of great prizes, and an assortment of
delicious appetizers. Dr. James LaPlant has graciously agreed to
emcee the event.
“Rockin’ for a Cause” will take place on Friday, October
5th at The American Legion Post 13 located at 1301 Williams Street
(behind Bazemore-Hyder Stadium) from 7:00-10:30 pm. In addition to
an air-conditioned dance hall, the American Legion has a cash bar
for beer and wine.
If you are interested in purchasing tickets before the night of the
event, you may contact one of the following:
