Robbin ShippGeorgia’s WIN List is excited to announce our endorsement of Robbin Shipp for State Commissioner of Labor.

 We are supporting Robbin because of her commitment to fight for issues that are critical to the families of Georgia including quality jobs, a livable wage and equal pay for equal work.

Robbin has used her skills as an attorney to serve Georgians in multiple arenas. She acted as Associate General Counsel to the Grady Health System, where she specialized in labor and employment matters. In her role as Senior Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County, she determined case disposition in the Crimes Against Women and Children Unit.

Robbin was the state representative for House District 58 and served on the Judiciary, Labor and Industrial Relations, and State Planning and Community Affairs committees. She used her role on these committees to work toward her goals of a livable wage standard for all Georgians and the creation of more sustainable employment opportunities.

Georgia’s WIN List believes Robbin will be an excellent Commissioner of Labor and will be an advocate for the unemployed and the underpaid.  We are confident that her past experiences in public service make her an exceptional choice for this critical job.

connie_stokesGeorgia’s WIN is pleased to announce our endorsement of  Connie Stokes for Lieutenant Governor in the general election on November 4th.

Connie’s dedication to the citizens of Georgia is evident through her experience as a public servant for over sixteen years. She is a fierce advocate for public education and job creation to promote economic recovery.

As a state senator for ten years, Connie worked closely with former Governor Roy Barnes, who appointed her as a senate floor leader. She was the first woman in the Georgia senate to hold such a position of leadership. She served on the Senate Appropriations, Banking, and Insurance committees. After former Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor appointed Connie to the leadership position of Chairwoman of the Senate Health and Human Services committee, she supervised public policy for departments with budgets totaling over 2 billion dollars.

After serving five terms as state senator, Connie was elected as a Dekalb County Commissioner, where she served as chairwoman to the Budget Finance Committee. As chairwoman she analyzed and approved the $664,000,000 annual budget for the county.

We are confident that Connie will be a vital addition to the Democratic ticket with Jason Carter and that she will continue be a passionate advocate for the women of Georgia.

Georgia’s WIN List is proud to announce the endorsement of Valarie Wilson for the State School Superintendent of Georgia in the run-off (July 22).

Georgia’s WIN List is endorsing Valarie because of her hands-on leadership in key educational initiatives for Georgia and her extensive managerial expertise.  Most importantly, Valarie is committed to preparing Georgia’s children for a global labor market by providing equal opportunities for every child to have a quality education.

As chairman of the board for the City Schools of Decatur,  Valarie helped create the successful College Heights Early Learning Center.  And as the president of the Georgia Association of School Boards, she helped develop the Vision for Public Education, an educational framework that has begun implementation in over 80% of state school board systems.

In addition, Valarie has a long history in the public service sector, managing large staffs and budgets. As director of the Fulton County Human Services Department, she managed a budget of $26 million and developed programs serving children, youth and the elderly.

Valarie is currently the executive director of the Atlanta Beltline Partnership, Inc., a private non-profit dedicated to raising private funds, creating community outreach and developing educational programs to support America’s largest urban revitalization project.

We believe that Valarie is uniquely qualified for this vitally important task.  Her commitment to implementing Common Core and resisting privatization of schools is in keeping with the ideals and principles so highly valued by the Democratic Party.  And she has the skills, expertise and a solid record of performance to back up those commitments.
