Lifelong Constitutional Christian Conservative Republican!
While there are many issues that face us in today's politically divisive age, Philip Singleton takes a Soldier's approach to attacking the issues that most directly affect the people of Georgia's 71st District.
With the 5th largest active military population in the US, we have the opportunity to excel in service delivery to our veterans. Currently, there are over 750,000 veterans living in Georgia and we can expect this number to continue to grow. Simple, innovative solutions can help us retain the valuable skills that veterans bring to the workforce and our communities. States can no longer wait on the VA to deliver results for our veterans. While there are many issues to address, Veteran services and care are without question my number one priority.
As a limited government conservative, I believe in the power of small businesses to transform our communities. That's why I think we need fewer regulations and a less burdensome tax code on our small businesses. The future competitiveness of our state depends on the growth and creation of economic opportunities throughout Georgia.
We must ensure that work pays more than welfare. I propose we move past the social safety net and a system which ensnares our citizens into a cycle of dependence and implement a new model – a social safety "trampoline" that propels individuals into the workforce so they can fully participate in the economy.
The United States is in a desperate battle to determine the moral compass of our Nation. Philip believes that we must protect life. Life is ordained by our creator, begins at conception, and should be protected. Philip has spent his entire adult life fighting those who would try to take life on the battlefield and is committed to continuing that fight on the floor of the General Assembly. It is time we send a Soldier to fight for us in Atlanta.
Philip joined the Army 9 days after we were attacked on September 11, 2001. He spent the next 15 years serving around the world including tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, Europe, and South Korea. Having received 2 Bronze Stars and 5 Air Medals for combat actions, Philip Singleton understands the full cost of freedom. He now believes that his oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution from ALL enemies both foreign and domestic is best served by fighting for our liberty in the legislature. It's time we elect a true conservative leader who will stand up for the values and principles of our country.
Our government and bureaucratic institutions has become bloated and often hinders our citizens and small businesses from achieving their potential. Philip vows to author simple and easily quantifiable legislation to start restoring trust in our local government. He also is committed to being accessible to everyone in the 71st district and has pledged to hold regular in person updates with the people of the district during the legislative session. Philip believes that a public servant who disappears once elected cannot truly be representing his constituents and that remaining accessible is the single best way to remain accountable to those he serves.

Singleton has also nabbed the endorsement of WSB pundit Erick Erickson, who on Monday wrote on Facebook that he was backing the “strong conservative who will vote for limited government” - and for Ralston’s ouster. Wrote Erickson:
“Speaker Ralston is pouring money into the seat to make sure Singleton does not win because Singleton has said he would push for the Speaker’s resignation. Singleton is a strong conservative who will vote for limited government. Support him and we can have a runoff between two Republicans, one of whom backs the Speaker and one who wants to do the right thing.”

Follow the money. It’s a good way to scope out a political race, and Georgia’s special House election in Coweta and Fayette Counties is no exception to the rule.

— Republican Philip Singleton, a candidate in the Sept. 3 special election to represent state House District 71, has gained the support of the anti-abortion group Georgia Right to Life. To help you keep track of which anti-abortion group is which, GRTL is the one that withdrew endorsements for legislators who supported HB 481. It opposed exceptions included in the law that would allow abortions in cases of rape or incest, provided the woman had filed a police report. The District 71 seat opened up when state Rep. David Stover, R-Newnan, resigned earlier this summer.
