Dana Barrett for Fulton County Commission

Fiscally Responsible. Socially Inclusive.

It’s time for our leaders to stop playing politics and focus on serving the people. We should not have to choose between keeping our tax rates down and taking care of our community. We can do both.

As your next Fulton County Commissioner, I am committed to:

  • PROTECTING VOTING RIGHTS and ensuring EQUAL ACCESS for over one million citizens.

  • IMPROVING PUBLIC SAFETY through more effective prosecution and ENSURING JUSTICE with programs that provide alternatives to incarceration for those who can be diverted from a life caught up in the system.

  • A TRANSPARENT, ETHICAL, AND EFFICIENT Fulton County that works for all.

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 CD11, I realized that running for that seat again was not an option. So, 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 volunteering with two non-profits I have engaged with for years, one focused on education, the other health. (One works to bridge the digital divide for students in lower socio-economic neighborhoods while the other focuses 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. It looked like no one was going to challenge him this time either. So, 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.
