CONYERS, Ga., March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pastor J. Chris Vaughn, one of the first openly Christian candidates on the political landscape in some time, has announced to seek Georgia's Fourth Congressional District seat running on the Republican ticket against Democrat Hank Johnson.
"During this time of economic and social upheaval, the current Congressional Representative consistently displays fringe, extremist beliefs and actions that are out of touch with the 4th District: in our jobs, energy needs, family, life, and faith. A change needs to come..."
-- Rev. J. Chris Vaughn
Currently Georgia's Fourth District Congressional Seat is a case study of representation that is out of touch with the constituents; neither embracing nor supporting the strongly held values of fiscal responsibility, faith, family, and life. Change isn't change until there is a change, and Georgia District 4 voter's must choose a Candidate whose values are based on timeless values that 90% of the voters state they believe in, and the values that will right the course of our Metro Atlanta, and our Nation!
Having given his life in serving people through churches and the faith community, Rev. Vaughn sees the plight of hard working Georgians, who are struggling against a political representative that seemingly has no interest in positive solutions to the problems the 4th is facing:
"Politics as usual won't help our family's problems. When families are struggling to buy gas, food, and stay in their homes, you'd think our Representative would focus on solutions and voting to see changes that are positive and helpful. Its time someone takes the oath, and promises to serve the District, not ignore it."
-- Rev. J. Chris Vaughn
Chris currently serves as the Lead Pastor of Grace Summit Church, a growing interdenominational, interracial church reaching out to South Metro Atlanta, in McDonough, Georgia. He serves as a Police Chaplain with the Henry County Police Department and is the Treasurer of the Meadowbrook Homeowner's Association in Rockdale County, Georgia.
The middle of three children, Chris was born and raised in the Carolinas. Having strong family ties in South Georgia, Chris felt right at home when he and Lisa moved to Rockdale County in 2002. Chris and his wife Lisa (23 years of marriage) have three children, Sarah Beth, Molly, and Luke.
At this time of unprecedented attacks against the Judeo-Christian foundation of our Republic, Rev. J. Chris Vaughn has stepped forward to make the values of our heritage shine again in the halls of Congress. Committed to honoring people with the values of integrity, respect, and honor, Rev. Vaughn makes it his covenant with the Fourth District to represent the District, and to communicate honestly concerning the issues that affect every voter locally, and nationally.
