Republican Marty Harbin Announces Candidacy for State Senate District 16

Local Businessman and TEA Party Leader promises to fight for less government, more personal responsibility, and a better Georgia

Tyrone, GA, Feb. 21, 2014 – Republican businessman and TEA party activist Marty Harbin announced today his candidacy for Georgia State Senate in the 16th district. State Senator Ronnie Chance announced his retirement earlier this week after 10 years in the legislature.

“Ronnie is a good friend and I honor him for giving many years of his life to public service,” said Harbin. “In light of Ronnie’s retirement, I would be honored to represent the voters of the 16th district in the State Senate.”

“I’ve been involved in conservative politics for almost 30 years,” said Harbin. “I have served in volunteer positions in many campaigns for state, local, and national office including Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign.”

Harbin is a founding member of the South Atlanta Tea Party and has spoken at Tea Party events across the Third Congressional District. He serves on the Third District Committee as First Vice Chairman and served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2012.

“As a small business owner and Tea Party conservative, I believe I bring the right experience to serve ALL the people of Fayette, Lamar Spalding, and Pike counties in the State Senate.”

Harbin, a native Georgian, graduated from Georgia State University with a B.B.A. He began his insurance career with The Harbin Agency in 1977 and earned his Certified Insurance Counselor designation in 1993. He is the Owner/President of The Harbin Agency, Inc., an independent insurance agency, which employees seventeen associates. He is also a Registered Representative with Woodbury Financial Services, Inc.

Marty and Debbie Harbin have been married for over 35 years and are the proud parents of six children and also have four wonderful grandchildren. They live in Tyrone and are active members of Fayetteville First Baptist Church where Marty serves as Deacon and Sunday School teacher.
