VALDOSTA —  Newly elected, local State Representative, John Corbett hopes to solve three issues, education, small businesses, and agriculture.

“I have served on a local school board for the past 12 years; along with two of my brothers, we run a small business; and I was born and raised on a farm, so I am passionate about these three areas,” Corbett said.

Corbett was raised on a farm in Echols County which still operates under his family to this day. He was raised here and remained here throughout college, where he graduated from Valdosta Technical College and Valdosta State University.

Corbett’s first plan of action is to assist local elected leaders, Amy Carter, Jason Shaw, and Ellis Black with state level issues and plans.

He would like to replicate the ideas and plans that Paul Ryan brought to the U.S. congress.

“He sat down with legislators that were effective, that was able to get bills passed and asked them, ‘What do you know now that you wished you would have known when you started?’” Corbett said.

“The people of Valdosta can expect to see me doing what it takes to become an effective legislator. Having been raised on a farm, I learned the value of a good work ethic. I have carried that work ethic with me throughout my life. The people of Valdosta can expect to see me working hard for them in the months ahead,” Corbett said.
