INTRODUCING: Rebecca King for Atlanta City Council District 7

Another campaign season is upon us and SDOC gets back to its political wheelhouse.

My good friend and Panhellenic colleague, Rebecca King, is running in City of Atlanta's District 7 race.

My job was to get this site up and functional, pronto.  There's only two months in the election season and everything has to work yesterday.

This site is going to evolve over the next couple of months as more information is available and more events are scheduled.

I was provided with a logo and color scheme and the site was built to Rebecca's specifications.

The key item now is the Donations tab.  That required an e-commerce solution to accept donations, a PayPal setup, and an SSL certificate for security.

Social media is alive and kicking too.  You'll see campaign events planned and statements on the local issues as well as endorsements as the campaign goes on.

If/when Rebecca gets elected, the site can easily be converted to an elected official's portal.

Enjoy, and Happy Labor Day!

Last Call to Qualify for City Council Elections

If you're interested in joining the fray for three of our seven city council seats this November, today is your last day to get to City Hall and qualify.  Get your district straight, make sure you've lived there for at least 6 months and you too can be a candidate.  All of the excitement you can handle will set you back $360 for entering the race.

The rumors and backstories and questions about our current candidates are starting to fly.  The DWG is staying tuned to watch how they develop.  Yes the "home business activity" angle will come into the discussion.  You have been warned.

Here's the lineup as of 10 AM today:

District One:

Pam Tallmadge (I)  (Original campaign site from 2015)

District Two:

Jim Riticher (I)  (Original campaign site from 2013)

Bobby Zuckman  No campaign website yet.  Here's his LinkedIn profile:

District Three:
