Georgia’s health care system is not meeting the needs of its diverse and growing population. About 1.4 million Georgians are uninsured and many more are at risk of losing coverage. Strengthening Georgia’s investment in health care is critical to assure all Georgians get an opportunity to lead a healthy life.
The low & unequal quality of education is a major challenge for children of Georgia. Georgian students underperform in International Student Assessments. About two thirds of 15-year old students in Georgia do not meet baseline standards in reading, science and mathematics.

City officials describe how kids are being increasingly exposed to crime and the culture that is found within it. At a young age, when kids are most impressionable and in search of a sense of status or belonging, they will search in the wrong places, i.e. gangs, especially if they are not able to find it at home or in school. It is my goal to work with community, police and civic leaders to find ways to mitigate these issues.
