Help Dee WIN!

I just went online and made a $100 contribution to Dee Haigler's campaign for House District 93. Dee is endorsed by both Georgia Equality (elects pro-LGBT candidates) and WIN List (elects pro-choice female Democratic candidates).This is a special election to fill the unexpired term of Rep. Ron Sailor, who was forced to resign from the seat in disgrace after being caught by authorities laundering money.

To thoroughly confuse you and voters in the district, the regular election is also going on, so the five candidates who qualified for this special election will be qualifying for the primary (to be held July 15th) and general election (to be held November 3rd). If Dee fails to win 50% + 1 of the vote in the May 13th special election, there will be a special election run-off (likely May 27th).

Dee Haigler has dedicated her life to public service as a minister, college educator, community activist, political strategist and organizer. She is a powerful and outspoken advocate for fairness and equality, with the right background and experience to be an effective advocate for all the citizens of House District 93.

Please join me in supporting Dee Haigler by going online right now and making a secure contribution of $500, $250, $100 (match my gift!), or $50 to the campaign.


Dee ran for the state senate seat that includes this house seat in 2006, and she is President of the local PTA and active in the community. She is by far the strongest candidate and can win this special election without a run-off, but only if we step up to the plate and support the campaign to get her message out to voters in the next two and one-half weeks!
