Christ lost in the November 2 general election to Republican Fran Millar.
On his campaign website, Christ lists five issues he is concerned about. They are:
- Excerpt: "Without a fully-funded, accountable public education system, employers will not find Georgia an attractive place to locate their operations."
- Excerpt: "Without a comprehensive plan that extends MARTA rail service, adds new light rail and high speed connections, and integrates bus and shuttle services, the increasing traffic gridlock will divide Atlanta into multiple, smaller labor markets - and employers will leave."
- Excerpt: "I support efforts to give local governments more flexibility when looking at alternatives to raising property taxes such as targeted user fees or School Infrastructure Local Option (SILO) taxes - a variant of the Local Option Sales Tax."
- Excerpt: "Public service was a public trust. While progress was made in the last session, there is significant room for improvement in our ethics laws. First, eliminate all gifts from lobbyists to legislators..."
- Excerpt: "Georgia should end the political games around redistricting and join the 16 states that use a bipartisan or independent commission to draw district lines. Specifically, Georgia should have an independent, nonpartisan commission that sets district boundaries based solely on population equality and compactness."
