Kali StittWIN List intern gives us her thoughts on returning to WIN for a second summer.

Throughout my 11th grade year in high school I was constantly being asked if I was planning to intern with the same non-profit or if I would try something different during the summer of 2011.  As I took time to reflect on the work I did and the amazing people I met during the summer of 2010 I realized that I wanted to stay with Win List.  When I first walked into WIN List during the summer of 2010 I knew a lot about politics but I didn’t know a lot about how a campaign worked, how to fundraise and how the little things mattered so much in electing a candidate.  Fortunately, I had a chance to meet and learn from a lot of failures that were made in the past and successes that have helped candidates in the present.  This summer I hope to continue to learn about the campaigning process and assist more women to be elected in the state of Georgia.  I would like to thank the board of Georgia’s WIN List and Anna Beck for making this internship possible. 

We are proud to have Kali officially back on the team this summer.  She has already jumped right in, travelling to Macon on July 19th to campaign for Miriam Paris in the special election for Senate District 26.

 

Last night, former Macon City Council President, Miriam Paris, got one step closer to becoming the ninth woman in the Georgia Senate.  Miriam was the top vote getter in last nights special election for Senate District 26, the open middle Georgia seat vacated earlier this month by Minority Leader Robert Brown.  When all the votes were counted, Miriam received 45% of the vote and faces former State Rep. David Lucas in the August 16th runoff. 

“This is a Democratic seat, and Miriam is the best Democrat in this runoff,” said Allie Kelly, chair of Georgia’s WIN List. 

WIN Listwas with Miriam every step of the way and will continue to be right there with her until she is elected to the Georgia Senate on August 16th.  “The endorsement from WIN as well as the staff support was essential to our success and the momentum of my campaign,” Miriam said.

We invite you to join Miriam and WIN List in Macon on Wednesday, August 3rd as we honor former Board Chair Amy Morton at our Viola Ross Napier event

This is why we do what we do. Miriam is a needed addition to the Georgia Senate. With your help, we can continue recruiting, training, electing and protecting women

WIN Founding Chair, Melita Easters,  is putting on a new production of her play, Mrs. John Marsh…The World Knew Here As Margaret Mitchell.  Don’t miss it!

Melita Easters has written a play that perfectly portrays the personality and times of Margaret Mitchell, reflecting the author’s complexity, humor, and above all “Southerness.” Extensively researched and skillfully crafted, Easters’ work finds voice through Kandace Christian, a marvelous new talent in the role of Mitchell.
