Sweat for Superior Court Judge
(campaign site has been closed)
The David Sweat for Superior Court campaign site presented a bit
of a challenge. Because of the Georgia Judicial Code of Conduct
standards, candidates for Judicial positions are restricted in what
they can say and do during a campaign. The most important impact
on the campaign site is that the candidate is prohibited from discussing
on presenting David's background, qualifications, and community
used a "Why should I vote for David?" section to let David
address visitors directly. We
also added a "Where are the Issues?" section to explain
to visitors about the restrictions placed on the Judicial race.
we used the site as an educational tool. When we discovered that
most people didn't actually know what a Superior Court Judge does,
we explained it in "What is the Superior Court?"
And we made
sure that visitors understood the historical importance of the election
-- the first time in over 40 years that
citizens could vote on an empty Superior Court seat!
