I am running for State House District 83 for the same reason I became a Chamblee City Councilmember: to build a thriving community for all residents. Affordable healthcare, excellent school systems, economic prosperity, and justice for all are within our reach when we work together.
As a Democrat with a proven track record for listening to constituents and delivering results, I’m ready to move our district and state forward. Please join me in creating a more vibrant future for all our families.
The Democratic Primary election is Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
House District 83 will encompass the southern half of Brookhaven and most of Chamblee. It is an open seat. Explore the 2023 House District 83 map:
