Signature Policies

Reduce the Size of Government: Frank Ginn’s website claims that he is “a defender of local taxpayers against an endless stream of state regulations.”

Creating a Business-Friendly Environment: Ginn supports tax breaks to help relocate out of state businesses to Georgia. He also opposes unions and minimum wage increases.

Controversy

Steel Beam Scandal: Ginn says a construction company gave him some steel beams, completely free of charge, leftover from a bridge project in Madison County worth an estimated $31,000. As the former chairman of the Georgia Senate Transportation Committee, Ginn was in a position to influence state contracts that this company, ER Snell, might bid on in the future. Ginn says he sold the beams to a recycling center for $10,000.
