I will fight to reduce the number of different taxes paid, and the total amount of taxes paid by working towards a consumption-based sales tax to replace the state income tax. It is your money, keep it in your wallet where it belongs.
Promote Small Business
Invest directly into Paulding. When compared to chain stores, local business owners recycle more of their revenue back into the local economy, strengthening the whole community.
I make my living manufacturing firearms, which is why I am an avid supporter of the Second Amendment. I will always fight against anti-gun agendas.
Commitment to Public Safety
I have spent my professional career designing, building and manufacturing tools to keep our law enforcement officers safe and my decisions in the legislature will continue to reflect the priority of safety first.
I will work to identify and eliminate wasteful spending within the state government while prioritizing tax payer’s money to reflect the community’s wishes, such as education and public safety. I will not vote for a budget that is not balanced.
Bryan Dobbs began his small business, Dobbs Defense, in 2013 as a gunsmithing shop with a small retail store in the front. After approximately a year and with the support of the community, the operation evolved to full manufacturing capability. In 2016, the Paulding Chamber of Commerce named Dobbs Defense Manufacturer of the Year, recognizing the community’s appreciation that Dobbs chose to help Paulding’s citizens to diversify the tax base and provide employment.
Bryan Dobbs furthered his dedication to the community by representing a cross-section of the business and professional leadership as a former member of the Board of Directors for the Paulding Chamber of Commerce and held a position of Sergeant at Arms for the Dallas Rotary Club. Through various programs, local clubs and personal endeavors, Bryan Dobbs has worked to make his community a better place.
He is not finished and has a new plan to put Paulding first.
If elected as the Representative for District 19, Bryan Dobbs will promote small businesses, fight to reduce the number of taxes paid, work to identify and eliminate wasteful spending within the state government and is committed to ensuring public safety.
As a local business owner, Bryan Dobbs understands budgets, numbers and financial statements. He has the ability to take complex problems and offer practical solutions. It’s time for a new way of thinking in the gold dome. Our community needs a leader who understands and has worked in the private sector; it’s time to put Paulding first.
Bryan Dobbs grew up in the Crossroads area of Paulding where he attended W.C. Abney Elementary, East Paulding Middle School and East Paulding High School. While in first grade, Bryan met Michelle who would later become his wife. Bryan, Michelle, and their three children live in the home he grew up in.
He began working for his father’s grading business at about 14 years old. It was here that Bryan learned the value of a hard, honest day’s work, which he carries with him today.
In 2013, Bryan decided to start a machine shop, so he bought a mill and lathe and taught himself. There was only one place to start his business, Dobbs Defense, and that was right here in District 19. What began as a 1,400 square foot gun shop has grown to a 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility with eight employees.
As Bryan’s business grew, so did his commitment to the local community. Bryan and his family donated countless hours and dollars, showing the community the same love and support they showed him when he started his business, to include visiting the local sheriff and police departments with food because they were working through a holiday or donating funds to an important cause.
This is only the beginning for Bryan and his family as it is their time to invest in the local community the same way the community invested in Dobbs Defense.
