The Advocate Commissioner's PLATFORM

Quality of Life:


Seniors Aging In Place: District 6 (D6) has my FULL commitment to continue the Senior Services legacy of our late, great Commissioner Darnell. I will work to support those who want to age in place, while living active, satisfying lives.


Health & Family: We will also take up the mantle, the late, awesome Joan Garner and use our resources around health to support our youth, young adults and working families in the District. 


Green Living: I am passionate about doing everything we can to save our only planet. I drive an electric car and will work to implement & support policies that promote better environmental protections now and for our future.


I will be your Advocate Commissioner ensuring District 6 is at the table  and not one the menu when discussions are being had about infrastructure - one of the biggest influences on our lives. Whether it is how we better connect buses to trains with Marta in Southwest Atlanta, East Point, College Park & Hapeville, or BRTs that make it easier for Fairburn, Union City, Palmetto, Chatt Hills; City of South Fulton & unincorporated Fulton Industrial residents to get to work or play - District 6 has the be at the table.


Organizations like Atlanta Regional Commission, Aerotropolis and the other CIDS in District 6 will have an advocate on the Commission as they work to help us thrive together.

Economic Development:

This remains the biggest opportunity for the cities in District 6. With both the local & global sister-city relationships, as Commissioner I will work to bring more connections with the leadership and

economic development divisions of each city to bring better quality jobs & services to the District so we don’t have to drive across town.
