02/08/12 On Thursday, February 2nd, Tim Harman of Bremen officially filed to run for State Representative, District 17, in the upcoming Republican primary. District 17, comprised of all of Marshall and most of Fulton Counties, is an open seat for the 2012 election due to redistricting.

Mr. Harman is a 38-year resident of Marshall County having lived in Plymouth most of his life where he graduated from high school in 1985. Mr. Harman holds both a Bachelors and Masters Degree and is currently the President of a restaurant company he founded in 2005.

As an entrepreneur, Mr. Harman has created nearly 100 jobs and currently owns and operates three Subway franchises and three pizzerias, with one more of each scheduled to open this year.

Mr. Harman believes the issues in this election are the economy, education, the size and scope of government, and the public’s desire to receive real, authentic representation.

A self-described conservative, Mr. Harman believes government should be limited, yet effective. A hard-worker, Mr. Harman has knocked on more than 4,000 doors and has attended numerous civic and government meetings.

Mr. Harman believes his proven economic credentials of starting a successful company and his sincere desire to represent the best interests of his district qualify him to be the next State Representative for District 17.

Currently, Mr. Harman resides in Bremen with his wife Jennifer and their four children where they are members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. To learn more about Mr. Harman and his campaign, the public is encouraged to log onto his website at harmanforstaterep.com or by visiting his Facebook page.
