Independents, Republicans and Democrats are hurting. With his executive management experience and his local government experience Darryl Hicks is the best candidate for the job.

In a rare one-on-one statewide news teleconference, Darryl Hicks told reporters that the race for labor commissioner comes down to the candidate with a proven track record of executive management experience and proven moral and ethical character. “My opponent, Mark Butler, clearly lacks the managerial experience for the job,” Hicks has noted, “and he has demonstrated a lack of ethics that I believe informed Georgia voters will reject.” 

“Unemployment is nonpartisan,” he added, “and we cannot afford to play politics with the labor commissioner’s office. Too many politicians are in office serving themselves, not the people.”
