BROOKHAVEN, GA — Bob Gray, a Johns Creek City Councilman, announced Monday that he will seek Georgia’s 6th Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The 6th District seat is currently held by Rep. Tom Price, who is expected to join the Trump Administration as the secretary of Health and Human Services pending confirmation.
Gray has a background in IT, having served as president of commercial services for NTT Data, the fifth-largest information technology company in the world. He has also held executive positions at Keane, Bearing Point, Capgemini and served as partner at Ernst & Young.
Gray, a Republican, is aiming to serve parts of DeKalb County including Brookhaven, along with north Fulton County and a swath of Cobb County.
“We have a narrow window of opportunity to affect real change in America,” Gray said. “President Trump is going to need willing partners in Congress to make that happen. While the political elite is obsessed with serving their own interests, the American people are ready for business leaders who can deliver results in Washington. After being blessed with three decades of success in the private sector, I’m ready to serve my country and community in Congress.”
The district went to President Trump in November, but was won by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida in the March primary.
Bob Gray is an international businessman and investor in technology, and is on the board of directors of Ammacore, a network solutions company based in Alpharetta. Gray is a well rounded individual; he is familiar with service, he is a savvy businessman and he is a proud member of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
As a Trump ally, the former Johns Creek Councilman is running to remove the “political elite” in Washington.
