Pullin announces for State House against Johnnie Caldwell, promises to restore integrity to the seat

ZEBULON - Yesterday, Republican Ken Pullin officially announced his candidacy for Georgia State House district 131 against incumbent Johnnie Caldwell Jr. Pullin, a resident of Pike County, will face off against Caldwell in the May 22nd republican primary.

“I have been watching what is happening in our country and knew that if I wanted to see a positive change, I needed to do something”, Pullin said in a statement. “Donald Trump was elected to drain the swamp in Washington, but there is a swamp that needs to be drained in Atlanta as well. I believe that a state representative should serve with integrity and put the interests of their constituents before their own. Frankly, I don’t think we have that now and the people of the 131st district deserve better. I have spent the past 8 months getting to know people around the district, learning about their concerns and asking how I could best serve them if I am honored to be their state representative.”

“We can’t send the same people back to Atlanta and expect a different result. It’s time for a common-sense approach in our state capitol. If I am elected to represent the 131st district, I will vote for fiscally sound policy, support constitutional carry and the elimination of Georgia’s income tax. However, my number 1 priority will always be taking care of the people who sent me to Atlanta to represent them. My door will always be open.”

Pullin grew up in Griffin, Georgia, and graduated from Griffin High School in 1993. He was awarded the Presidential Scholarship and the Hope Scholarship to attend Columbus State University, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. He has worked in the technology industry for almost 20 years. Ken and his wife Shelby have been married for 15 years and have two children, Luke, 13, and Libby, 10. Shelby has a Master’s in Educational Leadership and has been teaching for 18 years. Ken and Shelby are members of Rock Springs Church in Milner, where they volunteer in multiple capacities.

Both Ken and Shelby have been members of the Pike County GOP since 2013, where Ken has served as Pike County GOP Vice Chairman and Shelby currently serves as Pike County GOP Treasurer. Ken is also a State Committee member of the Georgia Republican Party.
