Meet Your Candidates: House District 67

Democrat Leigh Mcmutry and Republican Micah Gravley spoke to voters at Tuesday’s candidate meet-and-greet event put on by the Paulding Chamber of Commerce.

Residents of State House District 67, which includes a southeastern portion of Paulding County, have seen a change in their House race since the July 31 primary.

In that election, Republican and incumbent Bill Hembree and Democratic challenger Leigh Mcmutry won the nominations of their respective parties after each ran unopposed.

Since then, Hembree resigned to pursue the GOP nomination for the District 30 State Senate seat. Now in his place on the ballot is Micah Gravley, who was named by GOP leaders last month to be the party's candidate in the general election.

Gravley and Mcmutry were among the candidates courting votes at Tuesday’s candidate meet-and-greet event put on by the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce at The Frog Clubhouse of the Georgian.

The meet-and-greet also featured candidates from State House District 66 and State Senate District 30.
