The public is cordially invited to attend a campaign kickoff for Patrick Hampton, candidate for District 5 School Board, Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. at Jefferson’s Restaurant, 618 Georgia Ave., just across from the courthouse.
Supporters will have Jefferson’s wings and tea on hand, and campaign information. Volunteer sign-up information will be presented.
Mr. Hampton serves as a youth pastor, advocate, and the director of Goodwill Youth Advantage Mentoring Program. His commitment to fostering broad-based communication about issues related to youth culture on a local, national and international level have led to hundreds of speaking requests, as he travels the world addressing both teens and parents, said officials.
"The time is now," Mr. Hampton asserts. “The youth of today are the leaders of today. If we fail to sow the seeds of true education and real leadership into our young people today, we will be forced to reap the weeds of our ignorance verses the flowers of our love tomorrow."
Mr. Hampton is married to his middle school sweetheart, Sherinda Hampton, and the Hamptons have three sons.
