I’m sure you’ve heard my opponent’s comments in our televised debate on Monday. My opponent proudly stated his answer to the problematic agency is to spend more money; LOTS OF IT! His proposal to increase staffing from 1,000 employees to over 4,000 is absurd, irresponsible, and costs hard working Georgians millions!
As a businessman, my approach to fixing the problems is much different. I plan to be fiscally responsible by leveraging technology to modernize the agency which will create efficiencies through the elimination of unnecessary waste and duplicity.
I was the only candidate on stage who gave real solutions to issues, provided pathways to success, and spoke candidly about matters at Georgia’s Department of Labor.
Make no mistake, Stacey Abrams hand-picked my opponent and has made her endorsement crystal clear by hosting fundraisers for him! Ms. Abrams and her Socialist machine are working harder than ever to outraise the Republican ticket and use false accusations to hide their agenda and divert from their party’s lack of plans, structure, and solutions for our state.
We are less than three weeks from Election Day, and I am asking you to join our fight against the Democrats’ campaign to make Georgia into a California.
I don’t back down from a fight. I didn’t on Monday night, and I won’t as Georgia’s next Labor Commissioner. While my opponent tries to stand on conspiracies and Biden’s failed policies, I know the path to success, and I’m prepared to keep Georgia number one.
I’m confident you can agree that we simply can’t afford to have a Democrat leading this agency with full intentions of unionizing our state and eliminating contract workers!
So I’m humbly asking what you are willing to invest to stop this agenda. Please consider an investment of $500, $250, $100, or another amount you are comfortable giving today!
The time is short, and we will finish this race strong with your help! Join me in “Hammering Away” at the Democrats!
