Brookhaven, GA, April 6, 2017 – Letter to the Editor by Dave Henry – There has been a lot of talk (and a lot of yards signs) about the upcoming election on April 18th to fill the 6th Congressional seat formerly held by now United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price. Many Democrats from across the country consider his seat and once Georgia’s strongest Republican district their best chance to pick up a seat in the South. They have fielded wealthy businessman Jon Ossoff as well as former state legislator Ron Slotin as their prime candidates.
The crowded Republican field features many recognizable candidates and former elected officials including a former Fulton County Commission Chair, a Johns Creek Council member, and a former State Senator but one candidate, Judson Hill stands out as the Republicans best choice to hold the seat. Hill is strong all around conservative who has been a productive member of the Georgia State Senate for 12 years. He is a workhorse and not a show horse who has a strong record of getting results for the people of Georgia.
Judson Hill has consistently stood up for our conservative Georgia values. For his record in the state legislature, he’s consistently earned an “A+” rating from the NRA and a 100% rating from National Right to Life and the endorsement of Georgia Right to Life. That is why conservatives such as Speaker Newt Gingrich who held the seat for several years before Price and the Family Research Council have endorsed Hill.
Because there are so many candidates a runoff in virtually inevitable. A new FOX 5 Atlanta poll shows Judson Hill is the ONLY Republican who defeats Democrat Jon Ossoff in head to head race. Shouldn’t Republicans put up the best candidate that represents their values and has the best chance to win??
Join me on April 18th and vote for Judson Hill to keep the 6th District Republican.
