Thompson to challenge Albers again in 2018
Patrick Thompson is at it again.
Thompson, a Democrat who lost to incumbent John Albers, R-Roswell, in the 2016 general election for the District 56 Georgia Senate seat with 40.4 percent of the vote, Dec. 18 announced he is running for the same post in 2018. Albers is seeking his fifth term in the Senate. The district includes parts of Cherokee and Fulton counties.
Thompson, a Woodstock resident, is a businessman focusing on technology, energy and sustainability. He ran for the District 11 U.S. House seat in 2012, losing to incumbent Republican Phil Gingrey, and was a candidate for the District 21 Georgia Senate post two years earlier, falling to incumbent Republican Chip Rogers.
“Georgia deserves public servants who will implement solutions, not just talk,” Thompson said in a news release announcing his 2018 candidacy. “I will work with the General Assembly to create a plan that supports our community, manages our growth and protects the foundations of our quality of life. My top priorities reflect what constituents ask for - affordable healthcare, support for our public schools, sustainable jobs and smart growth that includes integrated transit and expanded train service,” said Thompson.
