Meet our new Board Member, Brad Carver

Atlanta Attorney Brad Carver became a member of our Board of Directors on January 9, 2024. He knew our original FAIRtax sponsor, retired Congress Member John Linder GA-07, from high school. Brad came to us because he believes that the burdens of government ought to be shouldered by everybody. 

As you know, under the FAIRtax, everybody contributes to the cost of our government when they make retail purchases.  This includes online purchases as well as purchases made in person at the store.

Brad also likes the idea that with the FAIRtax, you decide when you pay your taxes and how much you pay based on when you choose to buy something and how much you choose to spend.  Brad believes in selling the FAIRtax first at the state level, as he and fellow board member Jim Duffie are doing in Georgia.

Brad is the Senior Managing Director of Government Affairs at the law firm of Hill, Booth, Smith, P.C. in Atlanta. He is also a member of many other practice groups within the firm: Government Affairs, Energy, Regulatory and Utilities, Environmental, Mass Torts and Land Use, and International and Business Litigation. 

Brad is the Republican District Chairman of the 6th Congressional District of Georgia and a member of the Executive Committee of the Georgia Republican Party.  He has also been Chairman of the Election Confidence Task Force since 2021 and helped pass SB 202, the Election Integrity Act of 2021.  He was an alternate delegate to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, and a delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to Hall Booth Smith, P.C., Brad worked for Miller & Martin, Alston & Bird, the Georgia Municipal Association, and Georgia Power Company.

During law school, Brad deployed with the Army to Tuzla, Bosnia, from May 1996 to January 1997 as the Commander of a Detachment of the 341st Adjutant General Co. and was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal. In September 2003, Brad returned to Atlanta from a 14-month tour of duty in Kuwait and Iraq, where he supported 3rd Army as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for exceptionally meritorious service during combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.

Brad retired after 28 years of service at the end of 2018 from the U.S. Army Reserves in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, with his last duty position being Team Leader at Fort Rucker, Alabama.

Brad lives in the City of Atlanta in the Buckhead Community and is married with two sons, Bradley and Wesley.  They are members of Crossroads Christian Church in Dunwoody.
