from his press release:
SAVANNAH — Senator Eric Johnson, Republican candidate for Governor, today opened his Savannah campaign office at 329 Commercial Drive in Savannah. The office will initially be open from 10 AM – 3 PM Monday through Saturday and serve as the hub for political efforts in Southeast Georgia.
“For 17 years you allowed me to represent you and for that I am incredibly grateful. Together, we fought for strong families, smaller government and free enterprise,” Johnson told local supporters that joined him in his hometown for the opening. “But there is more work to be done. That’s why I’m running to be Georgia’s 82nd Governor.”
Johnson also spoke about his commitment to putting Georgia back to work and his plan to spur private sector job creation.
“Don’t let anybody tell us that our best days are behind us. With the right leadership, Georgia can emerge out of this recession faster than the rest of the nation and be stronger than ever before,” continued Johnson. “And folks, I’m just the guy to do it.”
An architect and a respected conservative leader, Eric Johnson served as President Pro Tempore of the Georgia State Senate. In that role, he passed legislation that cut taxes and spending, empowered small businesses, and protected doctors and businesses from frivolous lawsuits. He and his wife Kathryn have two grown children and live in Savannah. For more information please visit www.JohnsonForGeorgians.com.
