Meet Your Candidates: Senate District 30

Four men are seeking the Republican nomination in a Nov. 6 special election, with the winner moving on to face Libertarian James Camp in January. All five men spoke at Tuesday’s meet-and-greet event put on by the Paulding Chamber of Commerce.

The election season will be far from over for residents in the 30th State Senate District even after all the votes are counted on Nov. 6.

The district covers a southern portion of Paulding County, most of Carroll County and a western portion of Douglas County. Four men are in the Nov. 6 special election to replace on the ballot Bill Hamrick, the Republican who represented the district and was tapped by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as superior court judge—Mike Dugan, Bill Hembree, James Naughton and Glenn Richardson.

The winning Republican will move on to face James Camp, a Libertarian, in a Jan. 8 special election to ultimately determine the district’s next senator.

All five candidates were in attendance Tuesday at the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce’s candidate meet-and-greet event. The event also featured candidates from State House Districts 66 and 67.

See what the five State Senate candidates had to say to attendees in the attached video clips.
