GA Unfiltered, the AJC & Macon Telegraph Wants Your 10 Questions For Barnes, Deal & Monds

The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Macon Telegraph and Georgia Politics Unfiltered is part of a project to get answers from Democrat Roy Barnes, Republican Nathan Deal and Libertarian John Monds on the issues important to you.

We've all partnered with, a project of Personal Democracy Forum, to solicit questions from the voters for Georgia's gubernatorial candidates.

Here's just a sample of the questions submitted so far:

Jeff Boatright of Decatur asks, "Georgia has serious transportation problems that are now causing us to lose business to Birmingham, Charlotte, and other Southern cities. We once led, now we are being passed. How would you solve this problem?"

Tom McMahan of Rising Fawn asks, "As Governor, will you unequivocally restore the National Certification bonus pay for teachers who have earned it?"

And Jeremiah Winans of Milledgeville asks, "Citing a recent UGA study concluding that if every household spent an additional $10 on local food products then the state economy would increase by $1.9 billion, what would you do specifically to promote buying local?"

You too can ask your questions to Barnes, Deal and Monds. Or you can vote on the questions already submitted. The top ten questions receiving the most votes will be submitted to the gubernatorial candidates for them to answer.
