Dick Jones to run to ten Alpharetta polling precincts on Tuesday, November 8.
Donald Mitchell is running for Alpharetta City Council and Dick Jones, an accomplished marathoner, is running for Donald….literally.
Jones, 56, will run to 10 different polling locations in Alpharetta in an effort to raise awareness and increase voter turnout. When asked why he wants to do this for Donald Mitchell, he says, “Donald is running for office, and I’m running for Donald because I believe in the Fresh Vision he has for Alpharetta. Sure, this takes commitment, but it’s nothing compared to the commitment Donald Mitchell has to advancing Alpharetta and making it the premier city it can be.”
Jones will begin his run at 7:00 a.m. at AP01 (New Prospect Elementary) and plans to run to 10 precincts in Alpharetta on his way to finishing at AP14 at Ocee Elementary, a total of 18 miles. When asked how he will stay motivated, he says “It’s easy to maintain motivation because I will be anticipating celebrating Donald Mitchell’s victory at Pure Restaurant later that night! If you see me running on Election Day, please honk. Better yet, please go vote for Donald Mitchell. If I believe in him enough to do this, I can assure you that he is worth your vote.” Any runners out there that would like to run with Dick, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
