Community leader and committed conservative Scott Hilton today announced that he will run for the State House District 95 seat in the Republican Primary May 24th.


Current District 95 Representative Tom Rice recently announced his plans to retire. District 95 covers Peachtree Corners, Berkley Lake, and Norcross in Gwinnett County and part of Johns Creek in Fulton County.


“Through prayer and careful consideration, our family is pleased to announce my campaign for the Georgia State House. As State Representative, it will be an honor to build on a lifetime passion of serving my neighbors and the broader community. I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute back my time and talents toward keeping Georgia as one of the best states to live, work and play.”


“We would like to thank Rep. Tom Rice for his 20-years of dedicated service to our community. Tom is a godly man, a good friend and we are proud to have his support for our campaign.”


“As an outsider to politics, I am running to champion conservative ideals based on a successful career in private industry. I will leverage my experience from a 10-year career in commercial banking to promote conservative, free-market solutions that reduce taxes and eliminate government programs that hinder business expansion. We need to keep focused on attracting new industry and quality jobs to our state and region.”


“I will also champion conservative reforms that will secure a brighter future for everyone in District 95. It’s clear that we need leaders in elected office who will put the people first and are driven by strong principle.”


“I will support efforts to improve education through reforms that put students and those with special needs first. I will stand firm for our conservative values by protecting the right to life and defending our Constitutional right to worship freely.”


“My family and I are grateful for all the encouragement to pursue this role. We look forward to visiting with friends and meeting new people across our community as we work hard to earn your support and vote” said Hilton.
