Meet Michael

A resident of Cumming, Michael Williams has a background in accounting and business.  He owned and operated a chain of 18 successful franchise businesses that he sold in 2013.  He now wants to put his time to use working on solutions for the people of this district and the State of Georgia that can improve the lives of all residents.

Every election year we hear talk from politicians about their support of new “tough ethics laws”.  And every year we see the same “tough ethics laws” come out of the Legislature riddled with loopholes and exemptions with no real change.  Michael is committed to sponsoring real ethics reform legislation, no loopholes, no special exemptions.

He also believes in reducing the size and scope of government, improving the state’s economy and ensuring our local communities control our children’s education.   He is running for State Senate because he has personally felt the hardship brought on by a government that overreaches its authority and places obstacles in the path of those who want to better themselves and their community.

“As I looked for a new business to start, I could see how the government was making it more and more difficult for people like me to start a company and create jobs.   I feel it is time I step off the political sidelines and work for the state of Georgia and its citizens as hard as I worked for my own business.”

 

“I have had enough of career politicians
pushing us further down the road to less
freedom and more government!”
