The Facebook page calls itself a place for discussion on "all things Milton" and has more than 3,000 followers. It deleted its post where it offered entrance into a raffle for $30 gift cards to Campania, a pizza and pasta restaurant.
Jennifer Muller, the owner of Campania, said the restaurant "had nothing to do with the post" and was "totally blindsided by" it.
“We Call Milton Home” did not respond to a request for comment from the AJC and deleted another post where it wrote that it thought offering the gift cards was “okay” but that they took the post down after reading up on Georgia’s election laws.
The Official Code of Georgia — Title 21, Chapter 2, Article 15 — states “Any person who gives or receives, offers to give or receive, or participates in the giving or receiving of money or gifts for the purpose of registering as a voter, voting, or voting for a particular candidate in any primary or election shall be guilty of a felony.”
The Facebook page has said it is not affiliated with or funded by anyone who was running for office in Milton, but posted on Election Day that it was endorsing Bentley, Jamison and Lockwood.
In an interview with the AJC last week, Lockwood said he "wasn't really aware" of the post, didn't follow the page, didn't know who ran it, and said he "certainly would not have any part of that."
Lockwood defeated challenger Dr. Laura Rencher in Tuesday's election, garnering 66 percent of the vote. Jamison ran unopposed, while Bentley unseated incumbent councilman Bill Lusk.
Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood are headed to a runoff in the Atlanta's mayor's race.
