Attorney Judy Sartain plans to run for chair of the Hall County Board of Commissioners.

Sartain is the owner of North Georgia Adoptions, a Gainesville legal practice that focuses solely on adoption law.

She will be running as a Republican and said she hopes to implement new budget practices for the county government.

“We need to stop planning simply one year at a time,” Sartain said in a statement. “Taxpayers are paying enough. Continued tax increases are a symptom of a bigger problem of poor leadership. As our next County Chairman, I will start a process of planning two years of budgets at a time. We need to plan better so that we stop the tax increases.”

Sartain has lived in Hall County for 25 years. She is a member of Concord Baptist Church where she has been a children’s choir director, Sunday school teacher and leader for teen ministries. She is a graduate of John Marshall Law School in Atlanta.

The election will be Nov. 3. Richard Higgins, the current chairman, was elected in 2016 and is running for reelection.
