My name is Bethany Ballard. You deserve a State Representative who will defend Georgia families through difficult economic, political, and social troubles. Georgia has survived because our leadership focused on the right priorities. We must reinvest in those priorities to bring good jobs, safe communities, and ample opportunity to Georgia families.
Over my years of service, I have been asked to give several endorsements for candidates. In all of those I have never been more confident to endorse someone like I am for Bethany. I could never express how invaluable she has been to Lindsey and me during my time in office. All of her work behind the scenes assisting me with things that don't get noticed has uniquely prepared her to hold this seat. She is ready, she is prepared, and she is the person for the job.
State Representative, HD147
I would like to take this moment to urge all of you to vote for my friend Bethany Ballard to the Georgia House of Representatives for district 147. As a councilman for the city of Warner Robins I cannot tell you enough how important it is to have representation in our State House that reflects the values and beliefs of the constituents that live within the district. Bethany will carry her strong conservative values to the House and help assure that we have a say in all of the issues that affect us. Whether it is the education of our children, the protection of our lives and property, or our economic stability, there is no one I would trust more to represent the needs of District 147.
Councilman, City of Warner Robins
Bethany is an intelligent, motivated, and dedicated conservative who will prove to be a source of renewed energy as a State Representative for the people in her District. She is a proven leader in her community and a mother of two bright boys. As a conservative mother of two myself, I am elated to support Bethany Ballard for District 147.
For years, Bethany has been a trusted voice for conservative Middle Georgia values. She is a proven leader in our community and will be a strong advocate for her constituents in Atlanta, protecting missions at Robins Air Force Base, defending parents' input in their children's education, and supporting law enforcement and our veterans. We need Bethany at the Capitol. She will put hard working Georgians first.
State Senator, SD20
Decisions at the national level directly impact Georgia and our economy. Bethany will advocate for recruiting, training, and retaining good jobs so young families can thrive in Houston County.
Houston County, and the counties surrounding it, depend on Robins Air Force Base. We must support our military families and veterans so they can thrive in our community. We must also work to attract new missions to RAFB to keep our community growing and thriving.
We are not immune to crime, even gang related crime, in Houston County. Law abiding people should feel safe and protected, and our law enforcement community should be respected. We must ensure our law enforcement personnel have what they need to keep us safe.
Bethany and her husband, Mike, chose to make Warner Robins their home over a decade ago when he was transferred to Robins Air Force Base. She received a BA in English Literature from the University of North Carolina and an MA in English from the University of Central Arkansas. Before becoming active in politics, she taught high school English at her husband’s various duty stations.
Bethany and her husband Mike were married in 1996 and have two children, Braden and Preston, who attend Houston County Public Schools. They attend Perry United Methodist Church and are all active in the various ministries of the church. Bethany is the Acolyte Coordinator and serves on the church’s scholarship committee.
Since 2012, Bethany has served in Georgia Republican Party leadership at the county, district, and state levels. She serves as the immediate past chair of the 8th Congressional District Republican Party and was a member of the Georgia Republican Party Task Force on Election Law Reform and the GAGOP Permanent Rules Committee.
