LET'S TALK PRIORITIES
Protect the Rights of the Unborn
As a father and Christian, I understand the miracle that is life. This campaign is about people, not politics and I can't think of a group of people who more desperately needs our protection than our innocent unborn. As your Representative, I will always vote in favor of life!
Develop and Grow the Economy
Under Republican Leadership, Georgia has been the #1 state to do business for 8 years in a row. Just as I did as Mayor, I will advocate for our small businesses and promote economic development. Let's keep government out of the way so that hardworking Georgians can continue to thrive.
Advocate for More Freedom and Less Government Control
Ronald Reagan once said, "Man is not free unless government is limited... as government expands, liberty contracts." I believe a good legislator finds ways to empower citizens by reducing the size and scope of government. In the legislature, I will work to roll back burdensome regulation and strip power from the bureaucrats in Atlanta.
Promote Safe Communities
Georgia families deserve safe communities. As Mayor, I worked with local law enforcement to reduce crime by 40%. In the State House, I will ensure our men and women in uniform have the funding they need to combat crime and human trafficking.
Ensure Quality Education for All
Education is undoubtedly the foundation of opportunity. EVERY child in our state should be given the choice to succeed. As your Representative, I will work to localize education, allowing teachers to teach, administrators to lead, and families to have more options in their child's learning. I will also support pay raises for our hard-working educators.
Create Opportunities to Live the American Dream
The key to preserving the American Dream is opportunity. Let's ensure we limit government and empower citizens so that our future generations have the opportunity to pursue their own American Dream.

Anne and I have made Gwinnett County our home for more than 35 years. While “change” describes what has happened here, we cannot forget what has made this place great. I believe that honest leadership, transparent government, tightly knit families, a superior school system, equal rights, and thriving houses of worship are the keys to our success. Together we have a bright future here!
