MILTON, Ga. — Republican business owner Marjorie Greene recently announced her candidacy for the 6th Congressional District of Georgia.
Greene is the owner of Taylor Commercial, a construction business based in Alpharetta that she has owned since 2002. The firm has seen over a quarter billion dollars in business in 11 states.
“As a businesswoman for over 17 years, I know how to balance a budget, cut spending and meet a payroll,” Greene said. “Our next congresswoman has got to understand these things if we are going to decrease the federal deficit and reduce the size of government.”
Greene lives in Milton and is a 22-year resident of the 6th District. She graduated from the University of Georgia, where she received a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
“There is tremendous ‘Karen Handel fatigue’ across the district,” Greene said. “She lost a congressional seat she clearly should have won. Republicans need a candidate who can effectively carry the conservative message to the voters of our district.”
The 6th District seat is currently held by Democrat Rep. Lucy McBath.
