We understand that District 40 Senator Fran Millar of Dunwoody will be challenged in the 2016 Republican Primary by Paul Maner, who could announce his candidacy a week from today. Last month, Maner sent out this tweet, which he later deleted from his Twitter account:
Maner is a Financial Advisor with National Financial Services Group. His bio on the company’s website includes this:
Paul describes his priorities as God, family, work. He has been married to his best friend, Paula, since 1983. They have a son and daughter-in-law (married by Paul) who serve in the Army as Combat Medics. They live in Spokane, WA and have two boys. Paul’s hobby is competitive shooting. He is a member of the IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) and competes once a month at local matches. His favorite hobby is Friday date night with his wife.
Paul tries to live by the motto “You get out of life, what you contribute to it.” He strives to always remember what we’re doing here on earth, which is giving to and serving others.
We are told Maner is prepared to invest some money into his candidacy. Whether he will win against the long-serving Millar, who was sworn into the Georgia House in 1999 and the State Senate in 2011 is another question.
