A combined “Victory Count-Down Celebrative” for East Point, Union City, Fairburn, and College Park has been designed by the Voter Empowerment Collaboration. The election party will be held on Tuesday night, Nov. 5, from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. at the Windsor Hotel, located at 5010 Old National Highway, College Park, Ga., 30349 on the corner of Old National Highway and Interstate 285.
The public is invited to come out and meet the candidates and their supporters as they wait for the results to come in form the polls.
“This party will be family-friendly. We invite mothers, fathers, and grandparents to bring their children so they can share in the festivities and see the results of the political process,” says Rev. Albert E. Love, organizer of the election night celebration. “This just might encourage some young person to run for office and to contribute to the community good.”
