GROVE PARK, WEST ATLANTA, GEORGIA --
On Saturday, August 28, 2021, amid a bevy of community sages young and old, in West Atlanta’s Grove Park, veteran statesman Al Bartell responded to being called out by Street Groomers of Georgia to run for Governor -- and accepted their challenge publicly.
“The community said it was not up to me whether I got to run or not,” Bartell told the crowd gathered loosely at a “Stuff the Bus” school supply giveaway barbecue organized by the Street Groomers of GA and their community partner The Community Boutique.
