GAINESVILLE - State Schools Supt. candidate Ashley Bell of Gainesville plans a meeting in his hometown Tuesday night billed as a "thank you" and "rally" as the campaign enters it's final week before the May 20 primaries.<br />
Bell is one of several Republicans seeking to fill the post being vacated by John Barge.<br />
"We are closing out a hard worked campaign for Georgia School Superintendent," Bell said in announcing plans for the meeting. "Lauren (his wife) and I would like to thank everyone and rally our supporters for one final push right before the election. We have a great shot for success on May 20th, so we hope you will join us for an update and find out ways we could use your help over the next week."<br />
The meeting will be at 5:30 at Scott's on the Square.
Georgia Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue Thursday urged Senate leaders to remove language in the Energy and Water appropriations bill they say is a direct attack on Georgia in its ongoing water dispute with Alabama.
