With over 40 years of legal and judicial experience, a small business owner and entrepreneur, Steve Leibel is the most qualified candidate in the Georgia House District 9 race. Steve has a reputation of being a fighter, who is unafraid to challenge the status quo. His no-nonsense, cut through the "red tape" approach will be a breath of fresh air in the Georgia State House.

A Dahlonega resident for over 20 years, Steve has been married to his wife, Julie, for 33 years. They have 3 grown children.


"As a certified police officer, I am unafraid to take on those who promote a liberal agenda, threatening our right to bear arms."
—Steve Leibel
