I Consider It The Honor Of Public Service”
Senator Lindsey Tippins has served the 37th District of Georgia since 2010. For 51 years, he has owned Tippins Contracting Company, Inc., and he has been married to his wife, Ann, since 1969. They have two children and six wonderful grandchildren. He entered public service to give back to his state and community and treats his position as an honor as well as a great responsibility.
Senator Tippins has 22 years of public service. Since he assumed elected office, he has returned the salary earned from his positions on the Cobb County School Board and State Senate back to his community, in the form of college scholarships and teacher stipends. Over the years, this has resulted in more than $400,000 being reinvested in the community to educate students. He was named Cobb County Citizen of the Year in 2008.

“I Have Always Tried To Conduct My Public Responsibilities As Diligently As My Private Life. If I Don’t Think Something’s In The Best Interest Of Georgia, I Will Not Vote For It.”
Senator Tippins is as careful with the state’s resources as he is with his own. He is known for detailed scrutiny of spending bills, making sure that the state’s taxpayers are receiving maximum value for their tax dollars. He applies the lessons he’s learned in his own business to keep costs low and to determine if the investment is right for Georgia.
“We Have To Be Serious About
The Business Of Education”
Senator Tippins entered public service when he was elected to the Cobb County Board of Education. Realizing that two thirds of local taxes go to education, he began a series of initiatives that reduced costs and improved efficiency throughout the school system, using his decades of business experience. He has been credited with saving Cobb County and Georgia taxpayers millions of dollars.
Since being elected to the Senate in 2010, education (especially K-12) has continued to be a priority for Senator Tippins. He was named the Chairman of the Education and Youth Committee in 2013, and under his leadership, legislation that he authored has been passed which reduced the number of high-stakes tests in elementary and middle schools, updated the teacher and leader evaluation system, and created a real-time reading skills analysis to ensure students in grades 1 and 2 were prepared for third grade.
Additionally, he has worked extensively to provide high school students with new options for moving on to college or careers. He sponsored numerous pieces of legislation allowing high school students to participate in work-based learning opportunities and career-pathway programs that focus on student’s natural aptitudes. His innovative assessment program ensures students are learning and progressing in accordance with state and federal guidelines.
“We Need To Enable Economic Growth, Then Let Businesses Thrive On Their Own.”
Senator Tippins is down to earth and down to business. He has long advocated making investments in economic programs that incentivize business growth, but then let the free enterprise system thrive on its own merits. He has been a strong advocate for Cobb County businesses—and companies all over Georgia.
Senator Tippins has protected the rights of vendors in the business community, assuring fairness in our business environment. The Georgia Court of Appeals ruled that the existing lien law may prevent vendors or suppliers from being paid funds which they are owed for their work on specific projects. Senator Tippins worked closely with A.G.C. of Georgia to close the loophole, and guarantee vendor’s rights to be paid fairly for materials and services rendered.
