Why I Ran
First, I want to personally ask for your vote.
I ran for Senate District 19 because I am concerned about South Georgia. I grew up here; played ball here; hunted and fished here; and came back home after college to build a business here. God-willing, on April 2nd, I will be married to a girl from here (Ashlee Nicole Sharer from Wayne County) and will raise my family here.
I want my kids to have the same quality of life. I want them to be able to get on our rivers, go in the woods, play ball, and grow up with a small town view of the world. I also want them to get a world-class education and have the opportunity for a good job when they grow up. And selfishly, I want them to stay close by so I can see my grandchildren!
We need a Senator that will help with economic development, understands low taxes are important, has our values, and works well with others. I believe I am that guy.
I didn’t just hop into the state senate race. When I heard Tommie wasn’t running, I had to spend a lot of time in prayer, have major discussion with my fiance, ask for advice from people I respect and know this is the right place and right time for me to run. With the support of my family and future wife, the backing of my friends, and the confidence from God that I should run, I decided to enter the race.
I will listen to you. I am YOUR representative. I am not going to Atlanta with a pre-planned agenda or the desire to lead some type of faction. I am going with you, my family and all of South Georgia on my mind and heart.
My cell number is (912) 245-9915 and my office number is (912) 537-3030. Call me if you have questions, ideas, or just want to find out more about me. I’d love to hear from you.
I will make you proud. And I will make South Georgia a better place for all of our families.
