MAG, Others Sponsoring Free Public Forum for all Three Gubernatorial Candidates

Cobb Energy Centre, Saturday August 28

The Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) is sponsoring a free public forum that will feature Georgia’s gubernatorial candidates – Democrat Roy Barnes, Republican Nathan Deal, and Libertarian John Monds – from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 28 at the Cobb Energy Centre in Atlanta.

“This is going to be a great opportunity to hear the candidates address the most important and challenging issues we face as a state in a very intimate way,” says MAG President Gary C. Richter, M.D., who will serve as the event’s host. “We are genuinely excited – and we are encouraging the general public to attend.”

The media panel will feature some of Atlanta’s leading journalists, including John Bachman with WSB-TV (ABC), Wendy Saltzman with WGCL-TV (CBS), and Kyle Wingfield with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Wingfield will serve as the program moderator.

WXIA will “stream” the entire event live at

As a program note, the Lt. Governor’s portion of the program has been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.

Parking at the Cobb Energy Centre costs $5.
