First of all, there is nothing more than John would love to do than to be your next Secretary of State of the great State of Georgia!  John's primary focus will be to enact policies that will ensure that our elections are safe, secure and available to all residents that want to exercise their right to vote.  Secondly, John will place an immediate priority on developing programs to better represent the thousands of small businesses that have a substantial impact on the success of Georgia, but may be underrepresented by the Secretary of State's Office.
