During a Republican gathering this week, Todd Levent, one of five County Commissioners of Forsyth County, GA, apparently felt compelled to address the group and attempt to diffuse the growing concerns around last weeks swearing in of Joel Natt to the Forsyth Election Board. In part he announced that documents and questions would be released so Forsyth residents could avoice listening to "he said, she said" regarding the appointment.
Why Levent decided this was the time and place to speak publicly is known only to Mr. Levent. Readers of Hank Sullivan's substack articles and previous articles brought forth in The Georgia Record have explained in detail how Forsyth law and State law defines the nomination process for the elections board. They have heard the previous GOP Chairman submitted Natt's nomination the better part of a year early. Readers have heard that the newly elected GOP board spotted this bizarre nomination and notified the Forsyth Commissioners that Natt's nomination was voided. The GOP board then followed the lawful process to solicit candidates, interview and select an appropriate nominee which they then presented to the County Commission months ago and how the Commissioners have refused to accept the lawful nominee and have fought ever since to prevent any change from Natt. Why? We don't know.....yet.
