Cobb GOP Chairman Jason Shepherd recently invited Cobb Democratic Party Chairman Michael Owens as a guest speaker at his political science class at Kennesaw State University to discuss the American party system and the structure of political parties in Georgia. Owens said he had a wonderful time, adding “the greatest benefit to this was not the opportunity I had (which was great), but the opportunity that the students got by having both county chairs talking about the same thing from different sides of the aisle.”
