COMMERCE, Ga — Recently introduced Congressional Candidate Michael Boggus, who is running for Ninth District Congress in the state of Georgia, has established his campaign ideas upon the basis of family, ambition, and patriotism.
Growing up in Gainesville, Michael has experienced firsthand the necessity of working in diligence and consistency to attain his financial and familial goals that he has achieved through his attendance of trade school and gaining expertise in blue collar work as a crane operator.
His life, however, would experience a drastic turn after a tragic loss in his family that was directly caused by governmental ineptitude, overreach, and corruption in the pharmaceutical industry. This event would prove to be immensely impactful upon Michael’s life goals and perspective, and instill within his spirit the persistent conviction to alleviate the problems within our inefficient government that has failed its citizens.
Living in Commerce with his wife Maggie and two daughters, Alyssa and Madison, Michael has set his sights on Washington with the devoted, tenacious intention of becoming an instrument of public service to drastically reform the current corporatist political system. He is a firm believer in prioritizing patriotism over political partisanship and corporate funding, and anticipates bringing that revitalized message of the American people back into Congress.
Focusing on policies that would reduce taxation for the middle class, combat big pharma’s control over the American economy, stimulate economic development through the encouragement of entrepreneurship, defend second amendment rights, and preserve the People’s autonomy through the tenth amendment from government overreach and intervention, Michael brings a refreshing, populist message to politics, in the hopes of reminding the government that its responsibility is to protect and defend the rights of Americans, rather than restrict them.
Through various fundraising efforts and auctions, Michael has demonstrated his extensive experience and competency in funding political events and endeavors through financial cooperation with the American people, rather than relying upon political action committees or financial contributions from mega-corporations. On a localized level, he has been involved in several endeavors to bring these changes to fruition, most notably in raising the finances necessary to travel to Washington in November of 2019 to deliver a list of grievances to several senators in the Capitol.
Now, with political experience, blue-collar work ethic, and populist appeal under his belt, Michael looks forward to the future opportunity that he has in serving the American people in Congress. Through the continued support of patriotic, middle class Americans, he can serve as a reckoning force in a political sphere previously dominated by corporate interests and partisan pawns, and make “We the People” the predominant slogan of the American government, once again.

ELLIJAY, Ga. – Continuing his campaign for Governor, Hunter Hill made a stop in Ellijay on May 2 to speak with local citizens about his plans for the office if elected.
Hill spoke to local citizens over breakfast at Mike’s Ellijay Restaurant on Highway 282.
Hill is a former Army Ranger who has been in the State Senate for five years now. After resigning his seat in August to run for Governor, Hill has been focusing on his vision for Georgia and spreading that message to rally voters. Today, he spoke with citizens in Ellijay about the ideals for “less government, less taxes, and more freedom.”
With “career politicians,” as Hill noted, in office, it is an undermining of our values as a nation. He called out those politicians saying they were not even willing to risk their next election to uphold their oath.
Focusing more specifically on the recent issue of sanctuary cities. Adamantly against the topic, Hill said, “If a city or county in this state were to claim itself a sanctuary city, they would not receive a nickel of state funding.”
His second point on his vision for the office reiterated his opinions and intention to eliminate the state income tax. With bordering states already without an income tax, the competitive disadvantage is hurting our state, according to Hill. He went on to say replacing the income tax with a consumption tax setup would alleviate the tax burden from honest Georgians and redistribute that to everyone including visitors to the state and even those making money in illegal ways. Hill stated, “A broad-based consumption tax allows us to have more people that we’re bringing money in from, which allows us to do so at lower rates.”
On a personal note, Hill mentioned his faith pushed him to focus not only on the points of pro-life, pro-second amendment, and also religious liberty. FYN asked Hill if he would be seeking a “Faith Restoration Act” in his first year to which he replied, “Very good chance of that, yeah.”
Hill did confirm that he wanted to pursue faith-based adoption as a part of it saying, “We’ve got to protect our faith-based adoption agencies. We’ve just got to do it. A lot of the reasons that faith-based adoption agencies get involved is to be helpful in congruence with their faith. If you don’t protect their ability to do it in congruence with their faith, then they will just stop doing it altogether.”
Protecting people of faith and their ability to live and work based on that faith was a focus of Hill’s speech about the governor’s office, but also on his words about his future view of the state. He noted after winning on key policy issues aligned with our values and principals, he wanted to remind senators and house members of the values and principals that they were elected for, providing a singular vision to move forward under.
“Fighting for the people of Georgia” is what he says his focus is as Hill says he sees polls with him ahead of Kemp and closing in on Cagle. Separating himself, Hill says he’s not the career politician like Cagle and is very different than Kemp on issues like the income tax and limited government. But when comparing, Hill said he wanted to focus on his campaign and his vision to protect liberties and endorsements like the Georgia Right to Life to be a different candidate.
While most of those present were already Hill supporters like retired Gilmer county citizen, George Winn, who said he’s been a Hill supporter “all the way.” Based upon his stances as a military, Christian conservative who is a believable and trustworthy conservative.
Others like Ken Bailey find themselves supporting Hill as the best candidate. Following the campaign because “Hunter is not a politician. He is a fresh, young face and not a part of the established system, which needs to be broken up I think. I think he’s got good ideas. We don’t need to have a state income tax, that puts a handicap on us.” Bailey went on to say that he liked some of the other candidates and even knew some personally, but felt Hill was the best choice.
He also commented his appreciation of the choice in the election. With fine candidates available, Bailey said its great to not have to pick the best of a bad selection.
Hill continues his bus tour across Georgia with his final stop at the Cobb GOP Headquarters in Marietta on Saturday afternoon, May 2.
