Q: Why are you running for office at this particular time? In other words, what is the specific impetus for your run this year?
A: I have served on our local school board for 8 years, during which time we have raised graduation rates to among the top 10 percent in the state, while also reducing the annual budget. At this particular time, I see the opportunity to serve the people of Newton and Morgan County as their state representative and would be honored to do so.
Q: Why specifically are you running as opposed to any other office?
A: Doug Holt has been an outstanding state representative for Newton and Morgan County for the past 10 years. I am running for his seat to continue the conservative, common sense leadership he has provided for our district and our state. Q: What is your platform? A: I support Fair Tax (eliminating state income tax); I support Local Control and Reducing the Size of Government; I support School Choice; I support Job Creation and Quality Economic Growth; I oppose Obamacare in Georgia; I oppose Obama’s Common Core.
