Today, I went to the Georgia State Capitol and qualified to run for the State Senate with a team of women ready to change the tide in Georgia. It was a rainy day, but as a military veteran, I had my combat boots on when I filed my paperwork to represent District 48 in the General Assembly.
My family inspired me to run for office. During the last election, my daughters told me 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 restore trust, civility, and kindness back into our public discourse."
