What an amazing weekend on the campaign trail.  Saturday began early with the ordination ceremony for my brother in Christ Joe Profit, former running back for the Atlanta Falcons.  Then our versatile volunteers swept back the flood waters at our assigned pavilion at Oregon Park and hosted our picnic where we met and fed more a legion of voters, primarily from West Cobb.  I ended the afternoon by dropping in at the 6th Annual Georgia Robotics Invitational Tournament and Showcase (GRITS) at Walton High School.  The future of America was clearly in evidence in the smart and enthusiastic young men and women at that event.  We live in a wonderful county and country; it was clearly on display today.

Make Cobb an even better place to live with an open and transparent government.  Volunteer and donate today!!

President Calvin Coolidge once asked the wealthy financier J.P. Morgan what criteria he used before lending money to a potential borrower. Morgan’s answer was succinct and still applies today. He responded that the “first thing in life…was character. To destroy someone’s reputation for character was to destroy his credit, which in turn hurt commerce. Character, he said, was the fundamental basis of business. Character was all.”

I believe that integrity and trust are fundamental to good government. A lack of character is not only bad for business; it is also bad for government. A government which is led by a leader with a lack of character is a government which is not credible.

238 Days to the Primary on May 24th, 2016

It was a fun week on the campaign trail with events including the Concert on the Square in Marietta and working the GOP booth at the North Georgia State Fair.  Tip O’Neil once said that all politics is local and we are learning the true meaning of that expression as we travel around the County and meet voters.

I can’t find enough words of praise for our volunteers as they come out in good weather and bad to spread our message.  Become part of the movement that brings open and transparent government to Cobb by donating and volunteering today.
