SAM OLENS RECEIVES ENDORSEMENT OF JOE WHITLEY –
FORMER U.S. ATTORNEY IN THE MIDDLE AND NORTHERN FEDERAL DISTRICTS OF GEORGIA

Marietta, GA Sam Olens, Republican candidate for Attorney General, is pleased to announce he has received the endorsement of Joe D. Whitley, former US. Attorney in the Middle and Northern Federal Districts of Georgia during two presidential administrations.

“We need a person of integrity, a proven leader and a lawyer with superb qualifications, to be our next Attorney General. For me, and I believe Georgians of all backgrounds, Sam Olens is that person.

“As a lawyer, Sam has amassed a record of excellence. As Chairman of the Cobb County Commission and Chair of the Atlanta Regional Commission, he has been a constant friend and avid supporter of law enforcement. Cobb County and the region is safer and a better place to live and work because of Sam Olens’ ability to get the job done in a way that respects citizen rights, but deals firmly with law breakers,” said Whitley.

Whitley served as the Acting Associate Attorney General, the third-ranking position in the Department of Justice. He was appointed by Presidents Reagan and Bush, respectively, to serve as U.S. Attorney in the Middle and Northern Federal Districts of Georgia. Throughout his career, Joe served under five United States Attorneys General in a number of key operational and policy positions.
In 2003, Whitley was appointed by the President as the first General Counsel of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS),

“I’m honored to be endorsed by a man with the distinguished service and career of Joe Whitley,” said Olens. “His support speaks to the kind of Attorney General I will be and what I will do if given the opportunity to serve the citizens of Georgia.”

Today's Deep Thought

I remember one night I was walking past Mom and Dad's room when I heard them talking about how they might not have enough money to pay their bills that month. I knew what I had to do. I went and got my piggy bank and buried it in the backyard, where they couldn't get their mitts on it.
