Gwinnett GOP to Host Congressman Nathan Deal and D.A. Danny Porter at Saturday Breakfast

Rep. Nathan Deal, U.S. Congressman and 2010 candidate for Georgia governor, and Gwinnett DA Danny Porter will be the featured speakers at the Gwinnett GOP breakfast this Saturday. “There has never been a better time to get involved in the Gwinnett Republican Party,” said party chairman Chuck Efstration. “The Gwinnett GOP is devoted to informing concerned citizens about the best way to make a difference in the community.”

Congressman Deal made news this week by criticizing President Obama’s attempt to quickly implement an overhaul of the American health care system before the August congressional recess. “Most of us believe that the decision as to major reform of how Americans get their health care in this country deserves at least as much time and deliberation as it would take to select a puppy to live in the White House,” Deal said on CNN. “It took the president six months to decide how long and which puppy he was going to have. ... To expect Congress to do something on major health care reform in six days is totally irresponsible.”

Danny Porter, Gwinnett County’s District Attorney, will also speak at the breakfast. Porter has served as district attorney since 1992 and made news this week by personally prosecuting Michael Douglas Fox for the 2007 murder of Jerry Ann Elliot in Duluth. Fox was found guilty of malice murder, felony murder and armed robbery and sentenced to life in prison.

The breakfast is this Saturday, August 1, at 8:30 a.m. at the Sweet Tomatoes restaurant located at 3505 Mall Blvd. in Duluth across from Gwinnett Place Mall. Breakfast service begins at 8 a.m.
