Tom Stubbs To Run Against Jason Carter for Adelman SeatDecatur Metro | December 18, 2009 | 6:20 pm
Tom Stubbs writes in to confirm that he will indeed be running against Jason Carter for the State Senate seat being vacated by David Adelman, who will be President Obama’s new ambassador to Singapore. The seat will be filled in a special Spring election. Tom writes to DM…
I just wanted to pass along to you the press release issued today regarding the commencement of my campaign for state senate. The district encompasses far more than the City of Decatur. However, I think it would be nice for at least one of the legislators who represent us to lay their head on a Decatur pillow at night. I hope to fill that void.
In his attached press release sent out today, Stubbs cites his 18 years of living and 15 years of working in Decatur, his legislative experience chairing the legislative committee of the State bar, and a “leader in the bar.”
Stubbs lists “education, the environment and public safety” as the “key issues” facing DeKalb County.
