Mandi Ballinger announced Tuesday that she will be the conservative Republican candidate for the State House of Representatives District 23 seat in Cherokee County, which currently has no incumbent.
“As a conservative with experience running a family business, I’ll work to cut the size of government and make it more efficient. I’ve been heavily involved in our local community and will represent our citizens first, not the special interests,” Ballinger said. “We deserve a Representative who cares deeply about Cherokee County’s citizens, not just [about] a political career.”
Mandi and her husband, Eric, have been married for 12 years and have one son, Henry. She earned her Finance degree from Kennesaw State University and has lived in Georgia all her life. The Ballinger family belongs to St. Peter Chanel Church. Mandi serves on the Canton Main Street Board Economic Development Committee, is a past Treasurer and a Board Member of the Cherokee Arts Center, and has served on a committee developing Canton’s Comprehensive Land Use plan. She was named Volunteer of the Year by the Canton Arts Center.
“As Representative, I’ll work to eliminate our state income tax which will encourage new employers to move to Georgia and create economic growth here. I’ll work with fellow conservatives to make this a reality so that Georgia can continue to compete with surrounding states,” said Ballinger.
Ballinger’s campaign website is not yet active, so look for an update when it is.
