Candidate Spotlight: Chris Irvin (D-Toccoa), HD 28

Up in NE Georgia, Conservative Democrat Chris Irvin is trying to win a seat to the Georgia House of Representatives, taking on Incumbent Michael Harden (R).

Irvin is the grandson of Retiring Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin.

Irvin attended Limestone College in Gaffney, South Carolina on a soccer scholarship later attending Piedmont College & Clemson University in which he majored in pre-law and included courses of history, religion, philosophy, language, and the arts.

Irvin worked various jobs during that time: YMCA, Maxfli/Dunlop Corporation, Jarrett Electric, but in 1999 he started his own business called Deercourt Enterprises.

Irvin is a man of Faith who calls himself a proud husband, son, brother, grandson, and "old school" conservative democrat who strive to put his heart and soul into all he do while on Earth and would like to know that he will leave this world better than he found it.

Some of his key issues are Transportation, Trauma Care, Respect for the People.

Irvin is very critical of his opponent Michael Harden (if that's his real name) on issues such as Taxes, where Irvin says his opponent supports a leadership that passed the largest TAX increase ever on Georgia consumers. Under HB 1055 Georgians have had 88 tax increases levied upon them, ranging from court filing taxes, licensing taxes, permit taxes, numerous agricultural taxes, and hospital taxes, equaling almost $200 million in new taxes. I couldn't have said it better myself.
