Barnes Gets more Endorsements, this time from Religious Leaders

Presser from Barnes Campaign

Several prominent pastors from the metro Atlanta area endorsed Roy Barnes’ election efforts today.

With only a week left before the July 20 primary election, Barnes’ campaign, Roy 2010, has amassed an impressive list of endorsers from around the state.

“Our state’s future – our children’s future – is in peril,” said Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley. “This election is one of the most important of our lifetimes. We need a tested leader back in the Governor’s office – we need Roy.”

When asked why he was supporting Barnes’ gubernatorial efforts, Ambassador Andrew Young remarked, “Roy is the best qualified to tackle the problems of employment, education, transportation and restoring confidence in government. The people need a strong voice with unique talents to bring growth and prosperity back to Georgia.”

“On the issues that matter to the faith community, Roy stands out above the other candidates in the field,” said Rev. Timothy McDonald. “I am proud to support Roy’s bid for Governor because I know that he has the experience and the knowledge to get our state back on track.”

Rev. Jasper Williams said Barnes’ greatest asset is his ability to get the job done. “The challenges that we face in Atlanta, and all across the state of Georgia, are critical. Roy will be ready to go to work for us on day one – no on-the-job training required.”

“Roy has always been there for us,” said Rev. Dr. Walter Kimbrough. “He has the courage, and the intellect, to tackle the toughest of our problems. It’s time to bring real leadership back to Georgia government.”

Bishop Eddie Long, an early supporter of Barnes, said that he was endorsing the former Governor’s election efforts because of his long record of standing up for Georgians. “Roy is the only candidate in this race who has consistently been a friend to our community. He is the only one I trust to guide our state in a better direction.”
