Ad for Andrew Hunt Libertarian Party of Georgia

Doug Craig, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia, said the message is simple: Voters are losing interest in the two parties that have brought us high unemployment, under performing schools and over-regulation that hurts business.

“I am an engineer and innovator who wants to solve problems in the most cost effective ways,” Hunt said. “I work my faith in God to carry out Christ’s teachings of love and not judging people. I firmly believe we need to give people a hand up and reduce handouts. Effectively enabling people to be capable and independent produces less need for social support.
