Tickets are $10 in advance for the event, which commonly sells out early. The breakfast will be held at 7 a.m. June 24 at the Nathan Dean Community Center, 604 Goodyear St., Rockmart.
Also speaking will be two opposing candidates for Georgia House of Representatives to represent District 16, which includes all of Polk County and a portion of Floyd County. The incumbent, Rep. Rick Crawford (D-Fish Creek) is running for re-election as the only Democrat to qualify for the post. He will square off in November against Republican Bob Culver, Republican, who recently resigned from his Rockmart City Council position to make his bid for the statehouse.
The breakfast is limited to the State House of Representatives race and the county commission race due to the large numbers of candidates seeking the county seats, explained Sherman Ross, the Rotarian organizing the event for the club.
Incumbents and hopefuls who had confirmed their plans to attend as of presstime include: Charles Baldwin, Bill Byrne, Billy Croker, Cleve Hartley, Harold McDurmon, Leroy Peugh and Larry Reynolds.
Other candidates were invited but the club had not received replies as of late last week. Those candidates may be added onto the slate later.
