State Senator John Albers of Alpharetta has decided against running to replace Congressman Tom Price in the 6th seat that is expected to be open following Price’s appointment to President Trump’s cabinet. Citing his responsibility to his family, he announced his choice on Facebook this morning.
The past few weeks have been very exciting as I have been humbled and overwhelmed by all the calls, texts and messages of encouragement to run for Congress. I have spent considerable time prayerfully considering this important decision. For those who know me well, I rely on heavily on my faith and put my family first.
Ultimately after much prayer and insight, I have decided to choose my family without any regrets. My younger son Ryan just started high school and my role as father and husband are the most important titles a person can hold. I will continue to work hard and serve you in the Georgia Senate. While now is not my time, I will continue to look forward at future opportunities to serve my state and country.
