An Important Message from Chris Huttman
Welcome to my old politics blog.
In 2003, I worked at the Georgia General Assembly. Like many other people, I found the quality and quantity of information written about Georgia politics online and in print to be lacking. At the end of the legislative session, I created this blog to add to the information available to the public.
Starting in 2005, I became busy with a new job and being a new homeowner in Chamblee. I chose to buy my first home in the community where I grew up, about 2 miles away from the rest of my family and right next to Chamblee High School, my alma mater. I was writing fewer entries on this website (http://www.chrisishardcore.com), and when I did comment on politics, it was mostly on a bi-partisan assortment of Georgia political blogs, including Peach Pundit (a Republican-leaning blog) and Tondee’s Tavern (a Democratic-leaning blog).
In the blogging world, when an author stops updating a site, it is customary and expected that they take the site down and direct readers to other websites that are still being updated. That’s just what I did.
Jill Chambers, my Republican opponent in my current campaign for state House, decided to send a mail piece clearly intending to make this blog appear somehow sinister or otherwise inappropriate. I’m now bringing it back so the voters of the 81st District can judge it for themselves. Take a look around. Although many of the entries are a bit out-of-date, I hope you find at least some of them informative and/or entertaining.
As for the picture of me on Ms. Chambers’s mail piece, that was taken and posted by my younger brother when I was around 20 years old. Despite her allegation that I was “drunk,” I can assure you that is not the case. I personally believe the fact that Ms. Chambers would use a picture posted on the Internet several years ago as proof that I “post pictures of myself drunk” says a lot about her character, or lack thereof.
During the course of this campaign, you will be hearing more from both Ms. Chambers and me. Her campaigns have unfortunately been full of these types of tactics. I believe our state is facing major issues, and this campaign should be about those issues. When I talk about Jill Chambers, it won't be baseless accusations. It will be about the issues that matter to you, and I'll document everything I say.
Should you have questions or comments about this site or any other matters, please feel free to call me at (404) 372-8632, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also invite you to check out my official campaign site at www.chrishuttman.com to learn more about my stances on the issues that actually matter to Georgia voters.
