Michael Mills is the president of PR 1776, a small local business that provides corporations, non-profits and individual brands with full communications capabilities. On August 4, 2009, he filed papers to launch his candidacy for the statewide office of secretary of state, the seat currently occupied by Republican Brian Kemp, who had been appointed to the position following the resignation of gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel.[1] A little under a year later, Mills went on to place fourth in the July 20, 2010 Democratic primary with a little under fifteen percent of the vote and failed to qualify for the runoff contest.[2]
