Senate Banking Chair Jack Murphy Draws Challenger

Via Press Release:


Said He Is Tired Of Politics As Usual

Cumming-  Running for a public office is not something he wanted to do all his life, but with the economy caught in a perpetual stalemate and politicians doing nothing but kicking the can down the road, Steve Voshall decided that he had no choice but to run for the State Senate.

“I was raised here in Georgia, I went to public schools here, got married here and I am raising a family here, said Voshall.  I am not a politician, I am a concerned citizen and businessman, who cares deeply about his children’s future and that of this great state.”

Voshall said he is running to focus on Forsyth County and the State of Georgia, not as someone trying to pad or protect his own pockets.

“Forsyth County needs someone that will focus on removing obstacles to growing industry and small business, said Voshall, and right now we don’t have that kind of representation from our State Senator Jack Murphy.”

Voshall said that as Chairman of the Banking and Finance Committee, Senator Murphy has been sued by the FDIC for violations committed while Murphy served on the board of a bank.

“As a citizen who has been affected by this economy, my blood boils when a public official seeks to take personal advantage of the public trust given to them, declared Voshall.  It is time to put a stop to politics as usual and instill trust and integrity back to the office of the State Senate.”

Steve graduated from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.  Later, Steve started his own small business, located now in Cumming and specializing in insurance and investments.  Steve has sought to give back to his community volunteering for the United Way, as well as serving as a member of Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce.  Steve and his wife Stacey have two daughters and live in Cumming.

    If this candidate has no serious skeletons jump up and the voters don’t put Murphy out, it will be a bleak omen for Georgia.

    Funny—no mention of Steve’s leadership of the Forsyth County Tea Party ? I think this would be significant to his “political” experience. The one thing he is known for in the community? Is it necessary to disconnect from the “a-political” machine that brought him to this point? Very strange.

    Anyone But Murphy

    I assume Voshall can balance a checkbook. That might be the sole qualification necessary to defeat Murph The Surf.

      Murphy is an example of a politician who literally cannot balance a checkbook….Amazing…but, unfortunately, not surprising.
