Hamby seeks District 10 seat

Statement by Mike Hamby, candidate for Athens-Clarke County’s District 10 Commissioner

"I thought long and hard about taking this challenge on, but the challenge of running for this office is nothing compared to the challenges – and opportunities – Athens will face over the next four years. Athens is a good community made up of good people, and I want to be someone who serves this community in a positive and responsive way.

I’ll focus on helping to create a thriving, livable community for everyone in Athens, a community that continues the fight against poverty, promotes economic opportunities and looks to protect and preserve the resources that make Athens a special place to live.”

Mike Hamby, a resident of Athens-Clarke County since 1988, is a veteran of several state and local political races. He served as interim Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia in 2007 as part of Jane Kidd’s transition team. Hamby, who lives off of Jennings Mill Road, is currently a small business owner in Athens-Clarke County.

Mike would be lucky to be competent enough to use that "dial-out" feature to order a pizza. Dodson isn't exactly top of the line, but God help us if Hamby actually wins an election.
