Larry brings to the race for Cobb County Commission Chairman an impressive detailed grasp and analysis on the ins and outs of Cobb Commission operations. Many believe he knows how the Commission works better than any of the other candidates. Voters would not likely have to worry with the county manager or the county government bureaucracy bogging him down or escaping his scrutiny. He has extensive experience managing private business organizations where efficiency has been necessary to stay profitable.
Larry Savage for Cobb Commission Chairman
Beyond his experience, Larry is also known as a “straight-shooter,” meaning that he doesn’t say one thing and do another. He tells you exactly what he genuinely believes is true. He’s not afraid to deliver the hard “Savage” truths—even when they’re not easy to hear. He will diagnose the problem and find effective solutions. He is a man of firm small-government and fiscally responsible convictions, having spoken out against Cronyism and other excesses in Cobb for years, even filing lawsuits against some of the worst examples of it. He’s a proven hero in the fight for a healthy constitutional community.

In contrast, Cobb Republicans have been disappointed with other recent Cobb County Commissioners. Tim Lee let us down with the Braves stadium deal, in which a billionaire had his private business subsidized with taxpayer funds to the tune of $400+ million! Because of this, the Cobb GRA endorsed his opponent in the runoff, only to be disappointed yet again as Mike Boyce continued the tax and spend policies of Tim Lee!
Enough is enough. Cobb Republicans are ready for a candidate they can trust. Someone who cannot be easily swayed by the bureaucrats who are always hungry for more for your hard-earned money. Someone who will not penalize responsible citizens trying to take care of their families or businesses trying to compete in a level field.
Someone who will work to reverse the trend toward turning the county blue with policies such as apartment subsidies and homeowner tax-increases. It is a shame that our beloved Cobb County—which has been ranked as one of the most conservative Republican counties in the country over the last 40 years—lost in top-of-the-ticket races for President Donald Trump in 2016 and for Governor Brian Kemp in 2018.
