Why I support Doug MacGinnitie for Secretary of State

I enthusiastically support Doug because I believe he is a genuine Reagan Republican. He actually worked for Reagan; he was an intern for Pres Reagan during his last year in office. And like Reagan, Doug had a successful private sector career prior to entering politics. He entered politics locally in a grassroots success story - as a councilman for the new city of Sandy Springs. Sandy Springs stands as a beacon for voter self determination and minimal government payroll with its extensive use of private services.  The Reagan and Sandy Springs experience are bookends to a stellar professional and business career. Doug is well prepared to bring vision and experience to the Secretary of State's office - to assure fair elections, less red tape in licensing new businesses, and a fresh look at occupational licensing.

Who is Doug? Doug grew up and was educated in the Dunwoody area. Following law school, he was Chief Counsel at Georgia Pacific before he co-founded Beecher Carlson, a commercial insurance brokerage.  

What does he want to do?  From the start I was drawn to his platform of modernizing absentee voting and  assuring the vote for the military. If you remember the 2000 vote in FL you remember how the military was disenfranchised there. We can't let that happen here. Doug also questions if the 140+ occupations, trades, and professions licensed by the state all REQUIRE state supervision. He wants to look at ways to make it easier for individuals to get to work without excessive state oversight if the nature of the work is not ever likely to be a threat to public safety. He believes starting to work or starting a business in GA should not be an ordeal of administrivia and state delay.

Can Doug win? Voters around the state have really responded to him. He wins straw polls hands down. And he's been endorsed by leading Tea Party organizations like the "912" project.

Many wonderful people in Glynn County agree with me that Doug is the new generation leader for the Secretary of State's office. Please join us. Vote in the GOP primary. Put up a yard sign! Ask your friends to support Doug.
