A message from Judy Boyce

Hello, everyone! While Mike is on a church mission trip, I’ve had the responsibility of keeping the campaign going. I have to say – I’m enjoying every moment of it! As I mentioned, Mike is away on the mission trip to help children in the former communist country of Romania. Here’s a message directly from him:

Greetings from the Carpathian Mountains in Romania where I am part of a back packing team on a mission trip raising interest in programs for underserved children in this former communist country. Those who know me appreciate how much service to veterans, my community and my church remain cornerstones of my personal life. I shall bring the same commitment to you as your Chairman. Invest in the new future of Cobb and join our team at LikeMike4Cobb on the web, Facebook, and Twitter.

Saturday was an amazing day on the campaign trail. I started out at the monthly Cobb County Republican Breakfast in Marietta. Naturally, I took the opportunity to speak with everyone I possibly could to ensure they know Mike is running to serve them before anything else. The response at the breakfast was tremendous. As a bonus, I had the opportunity to hear from a panel that included 9th District Congressman Doug Collins on criminal justice reforms here in Georgia.

My day continued on at the Smyrna Birthday Celebration. It is easy to appreciate why Smyrna is such a wonderful city for its residents. The residents who celebrated with food, fireworks, a giant birthday cake, and music showed me why. Everyone I spoke with was welcoming and warm. And, I’m very excited to say that a great number of them expressed their support for Mike in the process. One man even told me his 95 year old mother has Mike’s push card right on her refrigerator and will be voting for him next May.

No one can replace Mike; his leadership and concern for every person around him shines through with every person he meets. But, I have to be honest – I loved being out in Cobb County on his behalf! I know I can speak for him when I say we would appreciate your support and your vote next May in the Republican Primary for Cobb County Commission Chairman.

As many of you know I attended and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame.   Father Ted Hesburgh was the President of the University during my studies.  He left a wonderful legacy including words of wisdom that carried him through some very difficult times in which he had to make some equally tough decisions.  My favorite quote from him is the following:

“My principle is that you don’t make decisions because they are easy; you don’t make them because they are cheap; you don’t make them because they are popular; you make them because they are right.”

In war and peace these words guided me not only on my spiritual walk but in my professional career and personal activities.

If these are the kind of words that you believe should influence and direct your Chairman, then join me in my campaign for Cobb County Chairman in 2016.  I promise that I’ll work daily to keep your confidence and trust.  Click on the Donate and Volunteer buttons and become part of shaping the New Cobb.



When it comes to defining responsibility, Admiral Hyman Rickover perhaps said it best.

“Responsibility is a unique concept.  It can only reside and inhere in a single individual.  You may share it with others but your portion is not diminished.  You may delegate it but it is still with you.  You may disclaim it but you can never divest yourself of it. Unless you can point yourself at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong then you have never had anyone responsible.”

Words like Rickover’s have been ingrained in me throughout my life, first by my parents, and later by mentors in my military career.  If Admiral Rickover’s words resonate with you, then join our campaign for Cobb County Chairman.  Donate and volunteer today!!
