Hamill for state Senate (Republican)
The common theme in the race between farmer Cliff Pirtle and Roswell Fire Chief Chad Hamill is the belief that it’s time for some new blood in the seat held by Democrat Tim Jennings for more than three decades.
While Pirtle and Hamill have avoided attacking Jennings’ performance and abilities, they’ve made it clear they believe a fresh perspective would benefit the district. They also share many of the same political views. Both support small business, improving the school system and either of them would well represent the interest of rural residents.
As their platforms are so similar, selecting one of these candidates comes down to a general perception of their abilities and personalities.
From what we’ve seen and heard from others we lean toward Hamill as being the more qualified of these two men.
The Daily Record endorses Chad Hamill in the Republican contest for state Senate, District 32.
