Bernie Marcus endorses Judson Hill

Home Depot co-founder and Atlanta community leader and philanthropist Bernie Marcus today endorsed pro-jobs candidate Judson Hill in the race for Georgia’s 6th  Congressional District.

“America’s job creators, particularly small businesses, need relief from healthcare mandates, relief from high taxes and relief from overregulation,” Marcus said. “Judson Hill has demonstrated he can bring thoughtful and determined leadership on these pressing issues. Voters sought change in the last election for one reason: They want better job opportunities. Judson has worked with other state leaders to make Georgia the No. 1 place in the nation for business, and he’s the best candidate in this race to get our nation’s job engines humming again.”

In Congress, Judson Hill will work to remove the job-killing mandates in the Affordable Care Act and to cut taxes on small businesses that create two-thirds of new jobs but haven’t fully recovered from the devastation of the Great Recession.

“I’m honored to receive the support of internationally renowned business leader, entrepreneur and devoted civic leader Bernie Marcus,” Judson said. “Bernie Marcus has created hundreds of thousands of jobs. As a job creator, he knows better than anyone else how to foster an environment that puts Americans back to work, and allows entrepreneurs to succeed. As a member of Congress, I look forward to partnering with him to put in place real solutions to the problems we face. The American Dream is still possible, and I will work every day to make sure that Georgians are able to realize their full potential without government overregulation stifling economic growth. The taxes and regulations that piled up during the last eight years have hurt job growth. This is our chance to fix it, and I’m ready to get to work.
