Michael Mills, a Rising Star in Democratic Circles looking to become the next Secretary of State

He's young, energetic, passionate & he wants to be the next Secretary of State. Yes I'm talking about Michael Mills. Although he's no stranger to Georgia Politics, he worke as a legislative aide to then Secretary of State Lewis Massey & then as press secretary to Mark Taylor successful campaign for Lt.Governor back in '98.

Now he wants his shot at his old boss's office Secretary of State. He is in a field that includes Gary Horlacher, a former press secretary for Roy Barnes 1998 campaign, Gail Buckner, who ran for SOS back in 2006, as well as Darryl Hicks, a native of Crawford County & Angela Moore.

He brings a mix of political, business & elections experience to the table in his run for Secretary of State, which is badly needed from the hyper, partisan four years Karen Handel. Mills platform includes:

Building a Georgia that allows citizens to have a voice, become prosperous and is a place we can all be proud to call home.

Ensuring the security of Georgia’s election system while limiting unnecessary barriers to voting for all eligible citizens.

Growing jobs and revenue by creating a business resource center for small companies, non-profits and entrepreneurs at the Corporations Division.

Protecting citizens against financial ruin and fraud through the professional Licensing and Securities Divisions

Michael grew up in a hard-working blue collar environment with dedicated parents who instilled a deep sense of values and service to others. His mother was a registered nurse and his father was a school teacher. The lessons of hard work, perseverance and personal responsibility learned at home stick with him today.

Mills made a natural transition to the public policy world, working at PR firms to shape health care, environmental and transportation legislation. Highlights included

Building a statewide coalition to educate elected officials about the Kyoto Protocol and global warming,

Serving as a key strategist for the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce’s Clean Water Initiative.

He served as a board member for the League of Women Voters of Georgia

And launched Vote for America-Georgia, a non-profit dedicated to improving educated voter turnout across the metro Atlanta region.

He also supported non-profits by driving corporate philanthropy and service, while empowering small and medium-sized businesses to work with one of the world’s largest brands – enhancing local revenues and creating jobs in the process.

He was selected to Georgia Trend Magazine’s list of “40 Under 40,” is a Leadership Buckhead graduate and was named Georgia State University, Communications Department “alumni of the year,” for his work with Coalition for a Voting America and Vote for America-Georgia.

Mills has accomplished alot during his time & now it maybe his time to take the reigns of Secretary State & put his experience & expertise to work to make the state of Georgia to grow & prosper in helping small businesses & creating & bringing world-class jobs to the Peach state. Mills is a battled tested guy who is the future of Georgia & the democratic party. He's going up against veterans like Gail Buckner, Gary Horlacher, Angela Moore, who herself is a small busniess owner in his bid to become the democratic nominee against either Brian Kemp, a Perdue Lapdog who was appointed to the position or Doug Macginnite, who is running strong at the moment.
