Republican State Senate candidate Matt Reeves will hold a Tax Reform Town Hall Meeting in North Fulton on Tuesday, April 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub at 12650 Crabapple Road in Milton.

“One of the main reasons I am running for the State Senate is that the hardworking homeowners and businesspeople in the 48th State Senate district are overtaxed. A massive transfer of wealth out of the district will occur on April 15, and I want to find ways to make that happen less in the future by listening to residents’ concerns, experiences, and ideas about tax reform. I will form my campaign’s tax policy through in-person meetings with residents of the district instead of meetings with “experts” inside the perimeter,” said Reeves.

Reeves invites people to bring tea to the Town Hall meeting to be ceremonially dumped into Savannah Harbor during the Georgia Republican Convention in May. He will also facilitate the formation of a Glenn Beck 9/12 Project meet-up group in the area if participants express an interest to do so.

Matt Reeves, running as a “Conservative Republican Workhorse”, is a business and real estate attorney at Andersen, Tate & Carr, the largest full-service law firm in North Fulton and Gwinnett County, nearly thirty lawyers strong. Reeves gained hands-on state government expertise by serving as Legal Counsel to Wendell Willard (R-Sandy Springs), the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, during the 2008 General Assembly, and by serving on the joint Senate-House Evidence Code Study Committee following the legislative session. He serves on Duluth’s Ethics Board, and Parks and Recreation Board. He worked for U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss when Senator Chambliss was a Congressman and Matt was a student at Mercer. Reeves graduated with honors from UGA School of Law and Mercer University, where he serves on his alma mater’s alumni board.

In addition to tax reform, Reeves plans to focus on finally accomplishing the re-creation of a Milton County in North Fulton if the new county is not achieved by the time he reaches office, reducing wasteful spending, getting tougher on crime and illegal immigration, being an advocate for the needs of the vibrant health care community in the district, promoting local funding and control of the District’s excellent schools, and standing up for conservative values.

The 48th Senate District covers Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Milton, Duluth, Berkeley Lake, and portions of Peachtree Corners.

Who is his opponent? Anyone? Who currently holds this seat? What is his stance on the "death tax"? We spend our entire lives being taxed on our income, our property, goods and services, and now more then ever before in the entire cumulative history of the United States our unborn grandchildren, and great grandchildren are being taxed by the Obama Administration, it's time to do away with the ridiculous, unfair death tax, how many times can one person be taxed by the government on the same thing? Then be taxed again from the grave.
