Know Where I Stand On The Issues.
I want to make Georgia safe for all citizens by addressing issues related to drug abuse, tougher sentencing guidelines for criminals, and continued reforms within the criminal justice system.
In order for Georgia to remain the #1 State for Business, we must continue to work towards the highest standard of education. I will work with local and state leadership to develop the opportunities needed to equip students with the education and skills that are vital to the enhancement of the manufacturing industry within our state.
I want to work to improve Georgia's infrastructure, bringing it to an acceptable level that would provide citizens with the necessary services needed to maintain our current way of life. I will work to insure a sustainable future with clear economic, social, and environmental benefits. I will focus on the necessary steps needed during severe weather and other catastrophic events with an emphasis on proactive-protective measures and emergency response plans. I will focus on closing the “digital divide” that exists between rural and urban areas when it comes to broadband access in Georgia.
Positive job growth must be a priority along with policies that encourage innovation, skills training, and business development. I will support initiatives directed at developing strong relationships between community stakeholders and state officials who are tasked with creating new job opportunities and developing a skilled labor force.
I want to focus on developing integrated approaches to economic development by working with business leaders and local leadership to maximize employment opportunities, and develop methods for tackling generational poverty and high unemployment rates within District 29.

READ A BIT MORE ABOUT ME!
I am a 30-and-a-half year law enforcement veteran, retiring from the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office in 2015 with training and assignments that range from undercover narcotics investigations to serving as the Director of Homeland Security for Columbus, Georgia. I attended the Command College at Columbus State University, and the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. I had the pleasure of serving the citizens of Mississippi immediately following Hurricane Katrina and assisted in bringing the C.E.R.T. program from Los Angeles, California to Columbus, Georgia. I am active in the Fraternal Order of Police and currently serves as the President of the FOP Georgia State Lodge.
Actively involved in civic and political issues for nearly three decades, I have sought to create a safer community during my career as a Law Enforcement Officer with the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office. While Public Safety is an issue that is near and dear to my heart, I am also committed to strengthening our infrastructure, striving for excellence in education, and creating and developing an environment that encourages entrepreneurship and small businesses to thrive.
I am married to my amazing wife, Theresa Garcia Robertson. We have four children; Candice (Jason), Sara Elizabeth, and Seth (Sheila), and Andee and three granddaughters; Skylar, Sally, and Kindall. We are members of First Baptist Church in Columbus and reside in Cataula, Georgia.
Congressman Drew Ferguson, (GA-3)
“Randy is the right choice to be the next Senator from Georgia's 29th District," Ferguson said. "He will work to reform our criminal justice system, maintain our high standard of education and continue to keep Georgia as the number one State for business. Having him at the State Capitol is great for the 29th District and I am honored to support his candidacy." - Congressman Drew Ferguson, (GA-3)
State Representative John Pezold
“Randy Robertson has dedicated his life to serving the people of West Georgia. He is a dear friend, an honest man, and he believes in limited government. I cannot think of a better choice to continue that service as the Senator from the 29th District than Randy Robertson.” - State Representative John Pezold (House District 133)
Former Congressman Lynn Westmoreland
“I’ve known Randy and Theresa separately and together. I am thrilled that Randy is seeking to serve the people of the 29th Senate District in Atlanta.
Randy is a Law Enforcement veteran who understands service above self and what it means to be a public servant. I am glad to offer my support and endorsement to Randy and Theresa as their family seeks to serve our region.” - Former Congressman Lynn Westmoreland
State Senator Matthew Brass
“I am happy to endorse Randy Robertson’s candidacy for State Senate District 29. I have known Randy and his wife since Theresa and I worked together for Congressman Westmoreland.
Randy is a man of character, integrity, and is widely respected across our area. I know Randy will serve the constituents of the 29th with the same vigor as he did during his 30+ years of service as a Law Enforcement officer. I look forward to serving the people of both the 28th and 29th State Senate Districts with Randy.” - State Senator Matt Brass (Senate District 28)
Troup County Sheriff, James Woodruff
"I am proud to announce my support for Randy Robertson for State Senate District 29. I have known Randy for several years and he has always been a friend to law enforcement. I feel he will work hard in Atlanta for all citizens. I think he is the best choice for our next State Senate representative for District 29. " - Sheriff James Woodruff
Troup County Tax Commissioner, Shane Frailey
"It is my pleasure and honor to endorse Randy Robertson for State Senate District 29. I met Randy some 20 odd years ago as we both served our citizens proudly in Law Enforcement. I know him to be an honest and dedicated public servant and feel he will bring a new vision to District 29. Being in Law Enforcement is a tough job and Randy has proven to be respected with a successful career of over 30 years. He wants to make a difference and cares about jobs, education, infrastructure, and most importantly, public safety in our communities.
It is for these reasons I support and endorse Randy Robertson for for this important public safety position." - Shane Frailey
Wade Collier, Local Disc Jockey
"My good friend for over 30 years, Randy Robertson is one of the finest, most honest, individuals I have ever had the pleasure to know. If I was down and needed someone anytime day or night, I’ve always known Randy would be there for me. He is a lifelong law-enforcement officer and scholar and has always believed more than most what protect and serve really means. So many of us have urged Randy to do exactly what he’s chosen to do now and that is throw his hat into the political arena.
Meriwether County has never had anyone that will work for them as hard as Randy will. We talked at length last evening about how flourishing Manchester was back in the 60s and 70s and Randy has known that area for so long and he so badly wants to help people like my friend Carla Starling Stephens and many more citizens just like her to bring more business, and growth back to my hometown.
Randy is now a Republican candidate for State Senate, District 29. Which, as you know includes northern Muscogee County, all of Harris, all of Meriwether, and the LaGrange portion of Troup County. Randy has spent his entire adult life in public service and he is more than ready and definitely qualified (in my opinion) to serve.
Please do your own research and I know you’ll find Randy the man for the job when you go to the polls on May 22nd for the primary." - Wade Collier, Local Disc Jockey
David Horiuchi, Small Business Owner and Retired Law Enforcement Officer
"I proudly endorse Randy Robertson for the District 29 Senate seat! I have known Randy Robertson for nearly 20 years and have been honored to call him one of my truest friends for the last 17. Having worked for and alongside Randy in law enforcement and professional/nonprofit organizations has shown me the distinct leadership qualities he possesses.
Randy has integrity, committment, resolve and excellent decision making qualities. He is ethical, honest, detail oriented, and one of the best communicators I have ever known. One of the absolute best qualities he has is his attention to others and his willingness to listen to all people, even those who may disagree with him. He truly cares about our community and wants to be a servant leader to improve not just our district, but our entire state.
Please consider endorsing and voting for this great leader who looks to move us forward and upward." -David Horiuchi, Small Business Owner and Retired Public Safety Officer
Bill Plock, Retired Law Enforcement Officer
As a longtime friend, as well as fellow law enforcement coworker, I have come to know Randy as a diligent individual who takes pride in helping others in any capacity. He never avoids a challenge and always strives to arrive at a decision that benefits all involved. His ascension through the ranks of the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office attests to his ability to get the job done. He has been involved for years in the leadership of the Georgia Fraternal of Police which has provided him with the important benefit of being able to successfully communicate with our state’s leaders.
Randy and his beautiful wife, Theresa, are avid church goers and their faith has served them well. For these reasons, and more, I am proud to offer my endorsement and support for Randy Robertson as the most viable candidate for Georgia State Senator for District 29. His ability to represent all citizens in District 29 is undebatable. - Bill Block, Retired Law Enforcement Officer
