Tell us what you think about the candidates left in the Republican Presidential bid race?
With the campaign suspension announcement of Georgia's own Newt Gingrich on Wednesday afternoon, the field of Republican candidates is narrowed significantly. Gingrich, backed by some of Roswell's own elected officials, posted a web video addressing his decision on Tuesday and made his official announcement on Wednesday, according to reports by The Huffington Post. Though the race began slowly during 2011 packed with hopefuls, including Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain, now just Mitt Romney and Ron Paul remain as official Republican candidates for the party's nomination. According to delegate counts on Real Clear Politics, Romney's delegate count is 865, in comparison to Paul's 93. So we want to know, how do you …

"This is an exciting time. It's a change that will keep Roswell going," said Councilman Jerry Orlans, noting the "sense of place" that will be added to Roswell through the ordinance. Opponents of the zoning plan worry that it will permit thousands of apartments in the community. In the end, five of the six council members voted for approval of the ordinance, having taken a considerable amount of time to flush out some of the details that bothered them during the weeks since the first reading in mid-…
