West Point Mayor Announces For Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District

This just arrived in the mailbox.

WEST POINT, GA – West Point Mayor Drew Ferguson announced today that he will be a
candidate for the United States Congress representing Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Washington is broken and as a small businessman I know that what our communities need
from Congress is that they get out of the way and let us create jobs and economic
opportunity for our citizens,” Ferguson said. “We are a conservative place, and I want to
put conservative principles to work for the whole district like we have in West Point where
we have cut taxes and utility rates while creating an economic development boom.”

Ferguson joins State Senator Mike Crane (R-Newnan) as announced candidates for the race.  As Nathan posted earlier, former Troup County Rep Jeff Brown has taken a pass on the run.  Peachtree City Businessman Jim Pace is still considering and expected to announce this week.

Furguson’s bio is as follows:
