Stonecrest City Councilmember Rob Turner and his wife, DeKalb School Board member Vickie B. Turner, will host a candidates’ political forum at their upcoming DeKalb Cultural Exchange (DCE) community breakfast.

The forum will be held on April 7, 8:30 a.m., at Greater Traveler’s Rest House of Hope Church, 4650 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur. The monthly meeting, usually held on the second Saturday, was moved up one week to allow community support of the DeKalb NAACP’s Unity Breakfast, which will be held on April 14, 8:30 a.m., at Greenforest Baptist Church Early Learning Center, 3250 Rainbow Drive, Decatur.

Mary-Pat Hector, a Spelman College student who became one of the youngest candidates in Georgia to run for office in 2017, will moderate the forum. Hector was only 19 when she ran for the Stonecrest City Council. Although Hector did not win the District 4 race, she won the right to have her name on the ballot after DeKalb County elections board officials decided there was no minimum-age restriction. Hector has worked in national politics as youth director for the National Action Network and Hillary for America’s Millennial Victory Council.

    ASA: As newcomers to the American mainstream involving our local political agenda, as Muslims, we offer reforming as an alternative to the current situation & circumstances as slave survivors.
    I look forward in attending the breakfast.
