The Winds of Political Change in Georgia
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Today, I thank my Congressman Phil Gingrey for his outstanding service to our 11th Congressional District over the past six terms in Congress and wish him well in his campaign for the U.S. Senate.
The citizens of the 11th must now carefully consider who can best represent our conservative values in Congress and help get America back on the right path to prosperity.
I strongly believe that we need a conservative reformer with an optimistic vision for our future representing us in Congress. Critical issues are on our country’s agenda such as renewing our economy, creating economic opportunity and prosperity, balancing the budget, and strengthening our national security to protect our families. Our federal government is simply out of control and must be reformed.
This is not a job for the quitters or the whiners. We will accomplish nothing with mere angry rhetoric and empty promises. The people of Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb and Fulton counties deserve a proven conservative reformer they can trust in Congress.
I am currently focusing on the last days of this year’s General Assembly in which I am working to expand school choice and education reform, improve the state’s economic climate for businesses and workers, improve our precious water supply for our citizens, and protect our young from the scourge of human trafficking.
After the session concludes, my wife Elizabeth and I plan to sit down with our three college age sons and our friends to decide if a campaign for Congress is in our future.
If I decide to run, I will wage a campaign which listens to the needs of the people in the 11th District and fights to insure that their voice is heard in Washington.
Within the two next weeks, I will make my final decision. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated by me, Elizabeth, and our boys.
