Williams announces state Senate run

By Staff
CUMMING - Michael Williams has announced his candidacy for State Senate District 27, which includes nearly all of Forsyth County. The post is now held by Republican Jack Murphy, who took office in 2007.

Williams, who plans to run in next year's Republican Primary, has a background in accounting and business, and SAYS he is committed to supporting tough ethics legislation, reducing the size and scope of government, improving the state's economy and ensuring local communities control their children's education.

"I have always been motivated to work hard and get ahead, to make a living for myself and grow jobs to help others provide a living for their families," Williams said. "But too often, government gets in the way. I'm running because I want to serve the people by making government smaller, less intrusive and more accountable."

As a State Senator, Williams pledges to create tougher ethics legislation, including a ban on all lobbyist gifts to legislators; reform Georgia's tax code to support job creation, and support strengthening the autonomy of local school boards.

"Government was created to serve the needs of the people," Williams said, "but at every level we see government operating as though the people serve it. I want to put the idea of service back into public servant, starting with the state of Georgia."

Williams is a cum laude graduate of the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Ala., with a degree in accounting. He completed a five-year Master's level program in just four years while also working full time.
