AUBURN, Ga. – Georgia Spa Company Owner Mark Stevens announced the launch of his presidential campaign on Monday vowing to Make America Relax Again.
“Our country has always been on the forefront of putting in a hard days work and earning a living, and the American Dream truly is realized through determination and perseverance,” Stevens said. “Nowadays, workers put in 40, 50 or even more than 80 hours per week at work, and often come home to even more tasks that take away from any chance for downtime. That’s why our presidential campaign is going to be founded on the platform to Make America Relax Again!”
Upon announcing his candidacy, Stevens immediately tapped Georgia Spa General Manager Josh Kemerling to be his running mate. The duo has been working together to help Georgians Bring Relaxation Home since 2004, and they will soon put forth their efforts to help our entire country appreciate the need for at-home relaxation.
“It’s an honor to be selected as Mark’s Vice Presidential candidate,” Kemerling said. “Fifteen years ago, we started something special at Georgia Spa, but we can no longer keep our relaxation message within the confines of our state. All of America deserves to enjoy and benefit from being able to unwind when they come home from a day at the office.”
While the Stevens-Kemerling ticket is being officially announced today, efforts on the campaign trail will be put on hold for the next week as Kemerling is currently enjoying spring break with his family in Florida.
“Vacations and personal time off are key parts of relaxation,” Stevens noted. “We’ll get to work on our campaign when Josh gets back.”
The Stevens-Kemerling presidential bid will be founded on the following principles:
- Every Day Made Better
- Plugging Into Stress Relief
- Enjoying Your Space at Your Pace
- Fitness, Wellness & Recovery
It’s the hope of both candidates that every American household will decide to implement a relaxation plan for their family that includes a hot tub, swim spa or sauna.
