My name is Jim Nichols, and I'm running to be the next Representative of House District 111 here in Henry County. I am running because I want to make sure your voice is heard in the State Legislature and I thank you for the opportunity to share my campaign with you.
For too long, big businesses and special interests, have sent lobbyists and legislators to do their bidding in Atlanta. I'm running because I believe every voice in this district matters. I think its time to build an economy that protects hard working families and not just those who can afford to cut big campaign checks.
I'll be honest, we face tough challenges in this state, and I don't have all the answers. But what I do know is that when it comes to jobs, transportation, and education, our citizens are being ignored and our states potential is being neglected. I'm tired of Georgia politicians who continue to fall back on Washington-Style politics: running away from real problems, failing to face facts, and refusing to do the hard work citizens elected them to do.
I know what hard work looks like. As a truck loader at United Parcel Services, I get up every morning and earn my paycheck. That is the same kind of dedication and commitment I'll bring to the table as your next State Representative. I also know about tough times and obstacles to overcome--as a high school dropout, who returned to get his degree from University years later, I've seen my share of challenges. But I've also been blessed with second chances and new opportunities. I've learned that sometimes the biggest challenges can unexpectedly cut a path towards a brighter future as long as you keep working hard.
We have many challenges to overcome in Georgia and I'm running for State House because I believe I'm up to the task. But I know I can't do it without your help. Join me on the campaign trail. Participate in the discussion groups, meet-ups, and citizen panels I'll be hosting around the district. Together we can bring new energy and new ideas to the table.
A vote for Jim Nichols is a vote in support of a healthy democracy, a vibrant economy, and a brighter future for all of us. We've got work to do in Georgia and that is why I'm asking for your vote, your voice, and your participation this election year.
