A Note To My Voters
"I believe in service. I believe in our community. If you elect me, you’ll have a true voice at the State Capitol."
I know our community. For over 25 years, I have been an active member of this community with my devoted husband, two wonderful children, and sweet dog. I’ve volunteered in classrooms, in our neighborhood, as a Girl Scout leader and band chaperone. I’ve worked with my Commissioner on Health and Mental Health campaigns and the Fulton Medical Reserve Corps.
I know the value of hard work. I’ve proudly spent over 30 years working for Delta Airlines as a flight attendant. But when the Great Recession hit, I had to do more. So I went back to school, then began working as a cardiac care nurse as a second job. Because that’s what you do when times are tough, when your family is in need. You step up.
I am not a career politician. I have ideas on how to fix healthcare, picked up from my time as a nurse. I’ve learned how the State Capitol works from my time lobbying on important issues, such as the fight against guns in schools. And, while I’m prepared to serve, I’m not in anyone’s pocket. The only people I owe any favors to are you, the voter.
So why me? Why now? It’s time to say enough is enough. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, we all know that proposed laws have gotten too extreme. No one wants assault rifles in our classrooms or permitless carry for weapons. We don’t want draconian abortion laws that relegate women to second class citizens. Climate change is real, and we must take action.
I’m a proud Democrat. But more than anything I feel compelled to run, not because I want to advance an agenda but because we deserve leaders who will listen and represent the people. Special interests and partisanship have pushed Georgia wildly off course to a place way out of step with our values. If you agree, I’m your candidate. I would be grateful to have your vote.
"I will put your needs ahead of special interests and represent the values of our district at the State Capitol."
