From running a loader at his dad’s lumber yard to flipping burgers at McDonald’s, Kevin gets hard work. Today, he is a successful businessman – starting numerous companies over the years. He owns a security company, runs a real estate business, and is a light commercial contractor that primarily builds homes.
Kevin’s family has been proud to call North Georgia home for generations. He owns and operates a poultry farm on the same land that has been farmed by his family for over 150 years.
TRUSTED PUBLIC SERVANT
Kevin is a proven public servant, not a politician. He spent 20 years protecting our families on the frontlines of law enforcement. As a County Manager, he protected taxpayers during the Great Recession and left Dawson County nearly debt free. In the State House, he has been an effective conservative that has delivered real reforms and protected our values – from defending the 2nd Amendment to being the only legislator to pass religious freedom legislation in the House and Senate.
COMMITTED MAN OF FAITH
Kevin has been married to his wife Stacie for over 20 years. Together they have raised 4 beautiful daughters – Kaitlyn, Abbie, Chloe and Yenifer. Yenifer, who Stacie and Kevin took in from foster care when she was in 10th grade, has blessed them with two grandkids – Nate and Theo. The Tanner’s attend Bethel Baptist Church where Kevin’s family has attended for 7 generations. There, he serves as a deacon and adult Sunday School teacher.
