Gubernatorial candidate Jeff Chapman believes the next governor of Georgia is going to face tough challenges when the economy begins to recover.
The additional revenues generated by an economic upturn will result in increased demands for government spending and restoration of funds to programs and agencies which have experienced cuts during the current fiscal crisis.
“The next governor is going to need to be someone who is strong and capable and willing to say no to a bad idea,” Chapman said. “You need a strong governor who is going to turn that money back towards the people.”
Chapman was one of the guest speakers at the June 21 meeting of the Barrow County Republican party.
The three-term Georgia state senator said he has worked to uphold good, conservative principles and will continue to do so if elected as governor.
