Columbus, Georgia — Todd Robinson, a Thomasville, Georgia native, retired Army veteran, former firefighter and now educator has thrown his hat into the U.S. Senate race for 2014. Mr. Robinson currently resides in Columbus and delivered his official announcement at the Columbus Government Center on Monday, July 22, 2013.
Robinson, a graduate of Central High School, is seeking to represent the State of Georgia in the U.S. Senate race. Things are heating up on both the Democratic and Republican sides. He is currently one of three Democrats in the race.
Robinson brings forth a fresh face, fresh perspective and fresh ideas as his campaign motto states, “The New Generation of Politics.”
“Together we can improve our states school systems, provide for our veterans, medically assist the elderly and reduce the unemployment rate by creating jobs. By empowering welfare recipients to be independent of welfare benefits, we can encourage them to seek employment,” Robinson stated. He feels welfare recipients who enroll and successfully complete their technical education and training will reduce Georgia’s unemployment rates.
Robinson knows firsthand that routine dental, eye care and hearing examinations and treatment expenses not covered by Medicare can put a burden on the elderly, as experienced by his own mother.
Being a veteran, he keeps uppermost in his mind the struggles of wounded warriors and the availability of administrative services for his fellow comrades.
As your representative, he plans to tackle debt crisis with common-sense solutions, ensure more transparency in government through increasing political participation, provide an online forum for citizens to voice their concerns and strengthen families through better education.
Mr. Robinson has one overarching ambition – to serve the people of Georgia and represent their interests at the local, state and federal levels. He believes that a better Georgia is possible and unprecedented challenges require bold leadership to fight the right solutions.
