Join Team Zahra


Why I'm Running

I am a military veteran and dedicated public servant who has served under five Presidents -- Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama -- and for one Georgia Governor, Roy E. Barnes.  I am running for Senate District 48, which is being vacated by Senator David Shafer, and includes parts of Alpharetta, Berkeley Lake, Duluth, Johns Creek, Lawrenceville, Norcross, Peachtree Corners, and Suwanee.

My two daughters inspired me to run.  During the 2016 election, they observed that “no one is being kind to each other and you, mom, have to do something to bring us together.”  They are right.  Politics has turned too divisive and partisanship runs deep.  I am running to bridge the political divide and to restore trust, ethics, and civility back into our public discourse.  In the State Senate, I will work with all my constituents – Democrat, Republican, and otherwise – to move our state forward. 


"Duty. Honor. Country. As your next State Senator, I will abide by these three words and will work hard every day to do what is right for this country, state, and district. Put my experience as a military veteran, federal prosecutor, and whistleblower attorney to work for you."
