AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Sen. Hardie Davis has announced he will run for mayor of Augusta in the 2014 election.
Davis was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2007 and the Georgia State Senate in 2010.
"I've spent many hours prayerfully considering my entrance into the Augusta mayoral race with my family, and I am excited to announce the start of my campaign today. It has been an honor to represent Richmond County as a state lawmaker, but as a longtime resident of Augusta, my heart is calling me to serve at home. I look forward to visiting and working with Augusta citizens during my campaign to create a brighter future for Augusta," said Davis in a news release.
Davis joins Commissioners Joe Jackson and Alvin Mason, Charles Cummings and business owner Helen Blocker-Adams in the mayoral race.
