I’d like to recommend that voters on Dec. 18 cast a ballot for Steve Brown for the Georgia House of Representatives. Politicians are good at making promises about making hard budget decisions, helping seniors and giving the average resident a voice.

During Steve’s tenure as Peachtree City mayor, he made those hard financial decisions and showed fiscal discipline by making immediate budget cuts in excess of $1 million to help resolve the city’s biggest budget shortfall in it’s history.

During his term in office, there were more funds appropriated for roads and cart paths than ever before; the city’s bond rating was elevated to the highest ranking and his administration left the city in the best financial condition than any other time in the city’s history.

He helped create and implement a senior homestead exemption and created the city’s first senior adult council.

Steve was known to visit your home personally if you had a problem or he would go to your neighborhood association.

He also visited the local schools to stay in touch with the youth in our community.

He was a champion of the average homeowner and has helped preserve the quality and character of our city.

His depth of knowledge concerning issues of state and local affairs will serve the community well. Steve’s past record reflects his willingness to fight for what is best for our community and represent the citizens interest above all else.

If you appreciate honest government, you need to vote on Tuesday, Dec. 18 for Steve Brown.
