BLUE RIDGE, Ga. – Glenn Patterson addressed the attendees at the Fannin County Republican Party meeting on Jan. 15: “I want to announce my candidacy for Post 2 Commissioner in Fannin County.”

Patterson spoke of growing up in Epworth and spending time in the Fannin County community as an adult: “These people, they are truly authentic, caring, loving people, and for that reason, I wanted to give back my time, my energy and my talents.”
Speaking of the incumbent and possible challenger for the Republican nomination, Larry Joe Sosebee, Patterson stated, “I know the incumbent. We went to school together, and I think he is a good man, but I want to offer my services to the county.”
Patterson added, “I want to be clear that I have no private agenda, or ax to grind, just the idea to help Fannin County be the best it can be.”
