This young man spends spends around 40 hours weekly concentrating on political items like putting up yard signs and making phone calls for GOP candidates.

He had to take an unexcused absence from school to attend the press conference where State Sen. Josh McKoon announced his sponsorship of a resolution to enact C.J.’s constitutional amendment.
He has even been “Twitter blocked” by Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed for voicing his opinion of a highly controversial decision the Mayor had made. Now that is a proud achievement!
