Former John’s Creek Council Bob Gray (R-GA), candidate for Congress in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to the American People. The Pledge is a written commitment to the citizens of Georgia and to the American people to oppose all tax increases. Gray is running in a special election to replace Tom Price who was tapped to serve as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
Gray was first elected to the John’s Creek City Council in July 2014, a position he served until 2017 when he announced his run for Congress. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Purdue University and earning an MBA in finance from the University of Chicago, Gray went on to have a successful career in the private sector. He became a technology executive and has worked with a multitude of Fortune 500 and private equity companies. Gray also serves on the board of directors of Ammacore.
“The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again. Signing the Pledge is the first step in that process.”
The Taxpayer Protection Pledge has been offered to every candidate for federal office since 1986. In the 115th Congress, 209 Congressmen and 45 Senators have signed the Pledge.
“We are ecstatic about Councilman Gray’s commitment to the taxpayers of Georgia. I challenge all candidates for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.
Bob Gray will run in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Primary on April 18th.
