Tom Dickson Announces for re-election
I love this community. I raised my family here and invested my life’s work as a teacher, principal and superintendent into the students and families of this community. Since 2005, it has been my honor to serve as your voice at the State Capitol. My time in the State House has given me the knowledge and experience to get things accomplished and to make our community a priority in Atlanta.
I have supported balanced budget and kept our taxes low and among the lowest in the nation. I helped pass one of the toughest immigration laws in the nation. I have proudly voted to protect our religious freedoms and to preserve our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. I have worked to ensure education is a budget priority and this year, helped to reduce the number of mandated tests and improve the process of teacher evaluations. Through the years, I have always promised to do the right thing for this district and represent our conservative principles. I have kept those promises, and I ask for your vote.
Republican Sarah Fields announces as State House District 6 Candidate. District 6 includes portions of Whitfield & Murray Counties
Republican Sarah Fields, Dalton business woman, enters the race to represent the citizens of State House District 6. “I believe we need a State Representative focused on serving the people and the community. After 12 years, it’s time for Dist. 6 to go in a new direction.” She’s not a career politician, only a former successful small business owner who cares about the people of northwest Georgia and our children’s future.”
A fifth generation resident of Whitfield County, she has three children, Kelly, Traci and Mark and four grandchildren. She and her family are products of our local community and public school systems. She’s an active member of ChristChurch Presbyterian of Dalton and their Sanctuary Choir. Sarah has been involved in the community for many years serving in United Way, Cub Scouts, Chamber of Commerce and other organizations.
For several years, Sarah has been concerned about Common Core, how it was forced on the teachers in GA and how this never tested programt; is not helping to educate our children. It’s time for our local school boards to regain control back from the Fed. Gov. She;s also concerned with the care of our Veterans and Senior Citizens. Sarah believes GA needs to ban Sharia Law, like many other states have done, to protect our citizens…mainly women. She believe in Pro-Life and supports our 2nd Amendment. Sarah said, “before voting I will ask myself, how would the people at home want me to vote to best serve them?”
