Thomasville native seeking Senate seat

COLUMBUS — Todd Robinson, a Thomasville native, retired Army veteran, former firefighter and current educator has thrown his hat into the U.S. Senate race for 2014.

Robinson, a Democrat, currently resides in Columbus. He delivered his official announcement at the Columbus Government Center on July 22.

Robinson is a graduate of Central High School. His campaign motto is, “The New Generation of Politics.”

“Together we can improve our state's school systems, provide for our veterans, medically assist the elderly and reduce the unemployment rate by creating job," Robinson said in a news release received by the Times-Enterprise on Thursday.  "By empowering welfare recipients to be independent of welfare benefits, we can encourage them to seek employment,."

Robinson believes welfare recipients who enroll and successfully complete their technical education and training will reduce Georgia’s unemployment rates.

Robinson's other key issues include affordable health care, veterans benefits, the debt crisis and government transparency.
