Wood said Olens "brags" that he helped set up a regular invocation before Cobb County Commission meetings. He does not tell voters, however, that he allowed an atheist to perform an invocation, Wood said.
"As a Christian and as an American, I am insulted that Olens would allow a man without faith to stand up at a public meeting and encourage others to give up their religion," Wood said. "As a candidate in this race, I am insulted that Olens would brag about this without telling voters the full story."
MAY WINS STRAW POLL: State Rep. Jeff May (R-Monroe) took the top spot at the annual Cobb County GOP July Fourth BBQ Straw Poll for a seat on the Public Service Commission. May won with 235 votes making it his sixth victory with at least 40 percent of the overall vote tally. May's nearest opponent came in a distant second trailing by 81 votes.
"Our grassroots presence at these events throughout the state shows our campaign is continuing to surge ahead," May said. "It is clear that my 3-D Energy Plan to Diversify, Develop, and Deliver is resonating with the people of Georgia."
