Successful service in the military doesn't always translate into political success but it can indicate a great deal about someone's character and their propensity to place service above self. In time of war in Iraq and again in Afghanistan, Hunter certainly has demonstrated the kind of character and the leadership skills to suggest he will be a great State Senator. I am pleased to support his candidacy and strongly encourage my Sandy Springs neighbors to do what you can as well to support his candidacy.
