For too long, we've watched the politics in Georgia get nastier, and conservatives become unnecessarily more and more right wing, despite decades of control. For too long, fear, hate, and anger have become the driving force behind much of our legislation.
For too long, we've watched our schools get worse, our healthcare options get worse, our environment get worse, our good paying jobs disappear, and our ability to have rational debates with our neighbors disintegrate.
For too long, we have been struggling, our children have been struggling, our teachers have been struggling, and our first responders have been struggling. Meanwhile, Republicans in the State Capitol are more worried about pushing hotly debated emotional buttons for cheap votes and easy headlines. Every day, our quality of life is slowly washing away, and they're more worried about putting up gambling casinos, crushing people's rights, and making it harder for folks to vote.
We deserve better. Georgia is an amazing state with incredible people. The Coastal Empire/Savannah Low Country is a wonderful place to live, with so much to offer. The kindness of the folks here is second to none. It's 2020. We need to focus on the issues of 2020.
We deserve better. And, in the Georgia House of Representatives, I'll do everything I can to help us get there.
