As many of you know, my neighbor and friend Max Wood, the former U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, is running for Attorney General. Sam Olens has gotten a lot of attention and been early out of the gate, but keep your eye on Max.
Max’s campaign had a bit of setback back in August. He is a Colonel in the Air National Guard and right after making his announcement back in August, got called up to Washington, D.C. for six weeks.
While in the U.S. Attorney’s office, he spent time in Iraq helping the Iraqis set up their judicial system. Tenure wise, he’s the longest serving U.S. Attorney in his district since the Johnson administration.
Max has prosecuted a number of politicians in his career, both Democrats and Republicans. He also grew rather infamous a few years ago by taking down the Nuwabian cult’s leader, Malachi York. Our street was one of the safest in Macon for a while due to all the death threats he was getting.
Max is good people. I hope you’ll check out his campaign along the way.
