Sonya Hunte, challenger
Q: What have you been doing differently to prepare for the runoff?
A: We have continued our citizen engagement by being fully present in the community. We have been knocking on doors, calling residents – essentially talking to folks on their porches, in living rooms, at churches, grocery stores and the community.
Q: Are there any changes in what you want voters to know heading into the runoff?
A: My message remains the same – my commitment to represent the collective voice of District 4 residents. As a collaborative leader, I will represent key stakeholders, the people who call District 4 home.
Q: Is there a specific statement or message you want to resonate with voters?
A: The message I want to resonate with voters is that I will commit to using my talents, education and experience to address the social and economic challenges faced in District 4. In Newton County, District 4 has the lowest education expectancy and lowest property values.
