The Board of Directors of Georgia Equality is pleased to endorse the following candidates for the upcoming January 9, 2018 special elections.
In a period in which many people seeking elected office are supportive of the LGBT community, the Georgia Equality Board of Directors will issue an endorsement for a candidate who we feel is best placed to advance our policy agenda. The lack of an endorsement should not necessarily be viewed as a negative reflection of a particular candidate’s views on LGBT issues in general. In some instances the board did not make an endorsement if there were multiple candidates with evenly matched views on LGBT issues or in races where an incumbent was running unopposed.
District 111: El-Mahdi Holly
“Thank you so much for Georgia Equality’s endorsement! This means everything to me. As a community organizer and as a public school teacher, I have long worked to help build a society that better respects and protects the civil and human rights guaranteed to us in the Constitution.
I firmly believe our communities are strongest and most productive when our neighbors feel welcomed, and are treated fairly and decently. As your next Georgia State Representative for House District 111, I am wholeheartedly committed to fighting for equality for everyone.”
