Cody Smith qualifies for Georgia House
Cody Smith, a small business owner and lifelong resident of Camden County, qualified for
Georgia’s House District 180 on Thursday 03/10/22.
“It is important to have a Representative in the Georgia Legislature that actively listens and is responsive to the communities they serve.” Said Smith. “ I don’t believe District 180 has been getting the attention it is owed and should I be elected that is going to change, the will of the electorate will always come first. My door will always be open and every email or phone call will be returned.”
Smith graduated from Camden County High School in 2012 and worked in the hospitality/
service industry until starting his own business in 2016. He moved back to Camden from
Washington, DC in 2018 to open his first brick and mortar location in his hometown of St.
Marys, GA. Since then, he has created jobs and grown his business into one of the largest
industrial hemp retailers along Georgia’s coast with locations in St. Marys, Brunswick, and
Savannah; all while pumping significant sales tax revenue back into the communities where
they operate. Smith began attending the College of Coastal Georgia in the fall of 2019 and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Public Policy. He has also had the privilege and pleasure of serving State Senator Sheila McNeill and her constituents as a Legislative Researcher and
Political Aide throughout her tenure. He has served as the 1st and 2nd Vice Chair of the Camden County Republican Party, Vice Chair of Precinct Development for the Camden County Republican Party, and District Secretary of Georgia’s First Congressional District Republican Party. Smith is also an auxiliary member of the Coastal Republican Women’s Club, the Camden County Republican Women’s Club, a Constitutional level sponsor of the Glynn County Republican Party, and a member of the Camden and Glynn Chamber of Commerce.
“I am running to serve as a proactive advocate for the citizens of Camden and Glynn, to
protect our precious natural resources, to promote educational opportunities and workforce
development, to encourage responsible and sustainable growth, to explore affordable housing solutions for Georgia families, to uphold and defend our Constitutional rights, to support our law enforcement professionals and first responders, and to lower the income tax burden for hardworking Georgians.” said Smith.
Cody Smith is a champion for conservative values, community, limited government, small
businesses, and the American dream.
Georgia’s House District 180 includes all of Camden County and a southern portion of Glynn County.
