ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Democratic candidate for Secretary of State Michael Mills says right now that office focuses too much on administration. He says he wants to fight for voters rights, but he also wants to empower businesses to succeed. Mills said he plans to "create a one-stop shop on the web site where there is literally a portal that not only allows you to register your business, but links you to the vital resources . . . chambers of commerce like here in Albany, banks that can provide capital, peer to peer resources that can help you grow."

Mills is a small business owner himself. He runs a public relations firm in Atlanta. In the 1990s he worked as an aide to Secretary of State Lewis Massey and on Mark Taylor's successful run for lieutenant governor.
