Democrat BoE Chairman Presberg stands with Republican Hollowell campaigner

The Fayette County political tradition of street-corner campaigning got a new participant Tuesday morning and maybe the start of a new tradition: Cross-party politicking. Leonard Presberg, appointed chairman of the Fayette County Board of Education and a declared Democrat, stands with a supporter of Post 1 Republican school board candidate Scott Hollowell at the busy intersection of Ga. Highway 54 and Peachtree Parkway. Hollowell was running for the open seat being vacated by Janet Smola in the Republican Primary. Photo/Special.

that Leonard Presberg, appointed chairman of the Fayette County Board of Education and a declared Democrat, may just be free-thinking about heading to Chick-Fil-A. Is this a hard-up-for-news town or what?
