I believe the time is now for Milton to move beyond politics. I am disappointed that my opponent has resorted to dirty campaign tactics and outright distortions. Milton deserves better and you deserve the truth.
In her negative ads and mail, my opponent calls local business owners “special interests” when describing my support. The truth is that my opponent accepted a $2,500 MAXIMUM contribution from a person who benefits from development and housing.
We pulled my opponent’s campaign financial disclosures, available by clicking here: http://ethics.ga.gov/ Here are the facts:
$7,750 in direct contributions
$5,150 from what she defines as "special interests"
Here's how this breaks out:
I want you to know exactly what you can expect from me. I am a person of faith and principles. Let me be completely transparent: I will ask myself these three questions before every vote I take:
1) Does this vote protect and/or promote our rural character?
2) Does this vote keep our taxes in check?
3) Does this vote promote maintaining and/or increasing the value of property?
If the answer is yes to all 3 then I will vote for it. If the answer is no to all 3, I will reject it.
I ask for you vote on Tuesday.
