When we Augustans elect a new state senator for District 22, we deserve an experienced senator, an effective senator and a senator who will fight for all Augustans.
Hardie Davis Jr. has the potential to be one of the most effective senators in Georgia. He has proved his leadership and effectiveness throughout our state and local community. Hardie has represented and served Georgia with integrity, character and dignity.
Hardie was elected to the Georgia General Assembly in 2006 as a state representative for District 122, and served diligently on the Budget and Fiscal Affairs Oversight Committee; Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee; Natural Resources and Environment Committee; and Science and Technology Committee. As a state representative, his scorecard demonstrates his ability to work with others and to get results (new jobs for Augusta, protection for Augusta taxpayers and a new water plan for Georgia).
Locally, Hardie volunteered his time, talents and resources on the board of directors for Child Enrichment, as a mentor at Cross Creek High, Wheeless Road Elementary and Westside High schools; as a sponsor for toy and school-supply giveaways for lower-income families; on the board of directors for the Augusta South Family Y branch; on the board of directors for Leadership Augusta; and on the Augusta-Richmond County Board of Zoning Appeals.
Hardie has the experience and relationships in Augusta and across Georgia that can make a positive difference as our local delegation returns to Atlanta to what might be one of the most difficult and painful. yet most important. legislative sessions in state history.
Hardie, a lifetime resident of Georgia, was raised in south Augusta. He graduated from Hephzibah High School, then attended Georgia Tech, where he received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering.
We have a chance to move Augusta forward toward a better future for our city by electing Hardie Davis as our next state senator.
