Hecht's platform is a multifaceted plan to improve public education.It covers incentives for teachers, restoring funding cut by the present administration, shifting emphasis to improving low-performing schools and creating programs that will encourage more parental involvement.
Hecht also pledges to stand firm against proposals he says could harm education, such as an amendment permitting tax funding of faith-based groups.This, he says, is a guise for introducing vouchers for private school use.Hecht also has a six-point transportation plan which, among other things, calls for commuter rail lines from Atlanta to Macon and Atlanta to Athens.

Greg Hecht for Georgia Attorney General
Greg Hecht was born in 1963 in Columbus, Georgia. His family moved to Atlanta where his father retired as a Lt. Colonel from the United States Air Force and started a caulking and paint manufacturing company. Greg spent many of his summers working on the plant floor sweeping and putting labels on cans 8 hours a day with a glue brush.

As a college student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Greg received the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, Given to One Man and One Woman in the Graduating Class "Who Best Demonstrates Unselfish Interest in Human Welfare.
