Why I'm Running
When I ran for Congress in 2020, I didn’t do it because I had a burning desire to be a politician. I did it because I felt strongly that the people of Georgia’s District 11 were not being well represented and I believed that I could make a difference.
After being gerrymandered out of Congressional District 11 in the latest redistricting and realizing that running for that seat a second time was not an option, I returned to my career as a business owner and communications consultant. I felt that the best way to serve my community was to continue my volunteer work with the two non-profits I have engaged with for many years, one focused on bridging the digital divide for students and the other on recovery for breast cancer patients across Georgia.
But then, on March 8th, 2022, with just a few days left to qualify to be on the ballot in November, I was asked to run for Fulton County Commissioner. The Republican incumbent has held the seat for eight years and has never been challenged in a general election — and it looked like no one was going to challenge him this time either. After researching the district, the commission, and the seat, I believe we can do better. So, I’m stepping up.
I’m running, just as I did in 2020 because we deserve leaders who will choose people over politics and put us before their own self-interests every day.
With your help, we can shift the balance of power in Fulton County to ensure free and fair elections, a balance of safety and justice, and a transparent, ethical, and efficient government that works for all of us.
