Grant Park Resident Brad Ploeger today officially qualified with the Secretary of State to run for Georgia House of Representatives District 59.
This afternoon, Brad Ploeger filed the paperwork to appear on the ballot in the November General Election with the Secretary of State. “Today I reaffirm my pledge to the citizens of the District, that if elected I will do my best to faithfully and ethically represent all of the people and communities that make up the 59th District. I am committed to finding common ground and partnering with all those who are willing to work together to build a better tomorrow for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren,” announced Ploeger. "I will be a voice of reason who puts Georgia families ahead of partisanship, because it should not matter if an idea is a Democratic idea or a Republican idea, what is important is if it is a good idea for Georgia," added Ploeger.
The campaign gathered signatures from more than 2,000 residents in order to appear on the ballot in November. “Joey and I have been very encouraged by the support we have received since this campaign began,” said Ploeger. “It has been wonderful meeting individuals from all the diverse neighborhoods of the District, but it has also been a sobering experience. Georgia and our community face significant challenges. We must work hard to create more jobs, get more value from our tax dollars, and ensure that our children receive the very best education we can provide,” stated Ploeger.
