Mike Hodges qualifies for Georgia State Senate
Republican Mike Hodges of Glynn County qualified Wednesday to represent District 3 in the Georgia State Senate.
“It is important to have a leader in the State Senate with real-world business experience and strong conservative values,” said Hodges. “I believe in lower taxes, cutting red tape for small businesses and workforce development that creates new jobs and generates economic development. I will protect our constitutional rights and stand up for election integrity.
“I will be a strong supporter of healthcare including mental health programs that are affordable and available. I will also work to ensure there is adequate funding for public safety, infrastructure improvements and broadband access for rural areas in our district,” he continued. “I believe we should give our parents a voice in their child’s education and provide every student with the resources to be successful in today’s workplace.”
Hodges has lived in the district his entire life and has been active in the business community for over 45 years. He currently serves as president of the southeast Georgia coastal market for Ameris Bank which includes Glynn, Camden, Liberty and Ware Counties.
Hodges has held leadership positions in numerous organizations including the Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital Authority, Southeast Georgia Health Systems, Coastal Community Health Board, College of Coastal Georgia Foundation, Jekyll Island Authority and the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce.
He has also been active in the Brunswick Kiwanis Club, Coastal Georgia Historical Society and Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation plus the United Way and American Cancer Society. Married for 38 years, Hodges and his wife Dana have two grown sons and are looking forward to the arrival of their first grandchild this summer. Georgia Senate District 3 includes the counties of Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, McIntosh and portions of Ware.
