I got email: Republican Charles K. Tarbutton of Sandersville Railroad, a Perdue ally is helping Ken Hodges for his run for Attorney General.

You may have heard during out time together, that our classmate, Ken Hodges, is a candidate to become Georgia’s next Attorney General. I’m writing to ask you to support Ken.

Ken has been elected to three consecutive terms (12 years) as the District Attorney for Dougherty County, Georgia. Ken has earned a strong reputation for protecting children and families, fighting public corruption, reducing gang violence, prosecuting white collar criminals and safeguarding victim's rights. He has tried and won some of the biggest criminal cases in Georgia in recent years. In recognition of his service, his peers elected him Georgia's District Attorney of the Year in 2002. Ken’s record is extensive and impressive, and I hope you will read more about it on his website at www.kenhodges.com

Besides supporting our friend and fellow classmate, why would you care about an Attorney General's race in Georgia? The answer is simple - Episcopal High School cultivated in each of us a spirit of service. Ken exemplifies this spirit. With our help, he can take this success and experience to the Attorney General's office in 2010.

As you know, statewide political races are expensive. Most of Ken's career has been spent in public service. He does not have personal wealth to self-fund this race. His supporters are working hard every day to raise the funds necessary for him to run a successful campaign. Please join me in supporting Ken financially.

Both men were classmates at EHS. They just had their 25TH Class Reunion.
