Candidates and rumors of candidates should now include Gary Gerrard, an attorney from Lexington, Georgia who is running for Congress to “save the American dream.” That’s probably the biggest goal of all the candidates in the crowded contest for Georgia 10.
Full release below the fold…
(Lexington, GA) – Attorney and former adjunct law professor, Gary Gerrard announced today that he has officially entered the race to replace Paul Broun in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Georgia’s 10th Congressional District.
“For far too long I have sat on the sidelines and watched politicians fail to represent the people who elected them. With a sluggish GDP, faltering job growth, and a Congress that refuses to come to grips with its addiction to overspending, it has become ever apparent Congress is broken,” Gerrard said. “I have been a sideline critic for long enough – I believe I can help bring real solutions to Washington and get Georgians and all Americans back to work. That is why I have entered this race – not to climb the political ladder, not to claim any spotlight – but to save the American Dream.”
Gerrard, a well-respected and dedicated attorney, has spent his life helping those who have been wronged. A good example includes his pro bono representation of John Goode from Texas in the case GOODE V. CITY OF AUSTIN in the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Gerrard represented John Goode, an African American man who had lost his concession subcontract with the City of Austin because he refused to submit to the city affirmative action certification process.
Gary served as Chairman of the Oglethorpe County Georgia Development Authority. He was also the CEO of ACTION Inc., a Community Action Association, serving 8 counties in Congressional District 10 whose mission is to serve the needs of those in poverty and to try to eliminate poverty all together.
Gary Gerrard is a real conservative and is an attorney and small business owner in Lexington, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1976 magna cum laude as well as from UGA Law School in 1979. Since then, Gary has become a very successful attorney, always looking to help those who deserve it most. Gary served as an adjunct law professor both at the University of Miami and the University of Georgia through 2011. Gary is happily engaged and currently resides in Lexington, Georgia.
