With all the anger in our politics today, I thought it would be important to remember, on this observance of his birthday, what Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Along with that, remember what the scriptures say in Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” As I campaign across the state, I’ll do my best to raise political discourse rather than degrade it.
Over the past month, we have traveled across the state, meeting great people and learning more about the issues facing all Georgians. Recently, I had the privilege to speak to the Greene County GOP, North Metro Young Republicans, DeKalb County Republican Assembly, the Americus Rotary Club and the Walton County GOP.
I was able to talk about my time in the Georgia House of Representatives, and my goals for this session. I also talked about my goals for the Secretary of State office, including how Georgia can have the best election system in the country, have Georgia be not only the best state to do business in, but also the easiest state. Additionally, there needs to be a review of the professional licenses that will check to see whether or not we have the correct amount of regulation and not too much.
Other improvements I want there to be in our election system are post-election audits and new election machines with paper backups. The post-election audits would serve as a quality assurance test, to ensure the paper backups match the reported votes, giving voters confidence in our elections system.
This past year, we traveled over 17,300 miles, went to more than 240 events and gave more than 80 speeches. We hope to continue to spread our positive, conservative message into this new year.
