Successful Business Career
Man of Faith
A Lifetime of Service to Others
As a native Atlantan and homeowner in this district for 31 years, I am running to bring a fresh style of leadership to this amazing Buckhead community. I know the values of our community based on my business experience and faith based background. We can find common ground that will make Georgia government work for us and rejecting the extreme positions that are not representative of this district at all. The support I have gotten from my friends, neighbors and elected officials urging me to run has been truly an inspiration to me. They know I care deeply about Atlanta and helping people.
I will work hard to support laws that protect women’s health and safety. I will be a strong advocate for quality education in public schools. And I will work with businesses and faith communities to build an economy that provides equal opportunities for everyone to succeed.
I have seen and been part of remarkable changes in Atlanta…..public school integration, Civil Rights demonstrations, the response to AIDS, skyscrapers, the opening of Lenox Square, professional sports, stadium construction and the 1996 Olympics to name a few. What have I learned from being part of this community for so long? Don’t fear change but work to direct it for the greatest good in the future. I will reach out to all the people of the 54th District and listen to everyone’s concerns. When proposed laws just don’t make any sense, or if they would harm our neighborhoods, turn a deaf ear to women’s health and safety, or make it more difficult for people or businesses to climb the ladder of economic opportunity I will be your strong voice of reason. I’ll support solutions that work, based on common sense, science, experience and reality.
This is a community that can be an inspiration to the whole State of Georgia by showing how we can reach across party, faith, gender, racial, sexual orientation and economic lines to help move us forward together. I’ll use my unique local background of business experience, faith based non- profit work and effective legislative advocacy within the Lutheran Church at all levels to build these bridges of understanding.
