(PRESS RELEASE -BREMEN, GA/HARALSON COUNTY/January 23, 2020) Tyler Paul Smith has announced his candidacy for election to the 18th District of the Georgia House of Representatives, following the announcement that Rep. Kevin Cooke is retiring from the Georgia House of Representatives to run for Congress. Tyler Paul is running on a conservative agenda and pledges to fight for smaller government, sustaining life, protecting our values and fueling a stronger economy. Smith believes his work, alongside many others, will make West Georgia and our State a better place to live, work and raise a family.
As a native of West Georgia, I believe in giving back to the community which has invested so much in me, said Tyler Paul Smith. I plan to work hard, earning each vote of the hardworking taxpayers of the 18th District and would be honored to serve our community in the Georgia House of Representatives. We need a strong voice to remind the folks under the Gold Dome that West Georgians play a major role in the success of our state.
Tyler Paul Smiths main goals for his candidacy include:
Smaller government The government cannot create jobs. However, a conservative government can encourage and support an environment where potential jobs are created, while not placing burdens and red tape on the growth process.
Sustaining life Over the past several years the birth rate has slowed and is the lowest it has been since 1918. Abortion has devastated our state and country. The joy and blessing that children bring is a cause I am going to fight for every day.
Protecting our liberties and values As a committed follower of Christ and dedicated conservative, there is no doubt that our way of life is under assault. I will fight to defend our values and protect our liberties.
Stronger economy For our business community to grow, we need to create a better environment for business growth for people in our area and our infrastructure certainly has the potential to meet the needs of an ever-changing employment climate.
