Paul Cain stakes a (political) claim

January 31, 2014

A young attorney staked his claim today to a spot on this year’s political landscape, declaring he will run for the vacant seat on Oconee County Council. Not only will Paul Cain run in the special April 1 election, he’s going to file as a 2014 primary candidate in hopes of winning a full, 4-year term. And he’ll run as a Republican. Official filing for the office begins a week from today (Friday, February 7.) Cain opened his official announcement by remembering Archie Barron, who held the District Three seat for which Cain aspires. “His passing leaves us with a responsibility to honor and seek to fulfill the same goals that he sought: fiscal conservationism, sustainable economic development, and building consensus within the community,” Cain said of Barron. Cain says it’s a little too early for him to be specific on the issues. But, on the question of whether he approves of the way the current council governs the county, Cain offered his thoughts . . . and we are playing those comments this afternoon on 96.3/WGOG NEWS.
