Want to help run Roswell? Attend a City Council candidate training

If you have ideas to improve Roswell but are intimidated by the city council election process, then clear some time Friday.

Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission are hosting a candidate workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. that day in room 220 of city hall, 38 Hill St.

The workshop shows current public officials, candidates and residents interested in the Campaign Finance Act how the law works.

The Roswell City Council on Monday unanimously approved a $375,000 contract with Fulton County to have the county run the city’s election on Nov. 5 and, if needed, a runoff on Dec. 3.

There will be elections for posts one, two, three and a municipal judge, according to minutes from the Monday meeting.

According to the city website, those interested in getting on City Council can’t apply before Aug. 19 or after Aug. 23. Applications can be handled at city hall between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day.

The city’s Facebook page said topics of discussion at the Friday workshop include “preliminary matters, definitions, forms, reports, late filing fees, contribution limits and campaign records.”

Staff from the two agencies will be available to answer questions. Look for more information on the state ethics website.

Those interested can RSVP to Roswell City Clerk Marlee Press at or 770-594-6280 by Wednesday.
