Continuing to earn every vote during the contested election for Secretary of the State Bar of Georgia, Dawn Jones appreciated the opportunity to address the large crowd of GABWA members and supporters during a membership mixer event on April 13, 2017. The mixer was hosted by Tracee Benzo and Lashonda Council Rogers and was held at Tuk Tuk Thai restaurant in Atlanta. Approximately 90 lawyers, judges and law students mixed and mingled over the course of the evening. Dawn reminded many attendees of the ability to vote online at and several did so that evening using their smartphones.
