The Georgia’s WIN List Endorsed Candidate for House District 109 in Henry, Rockdale and Newton counties is Colonel (Retired) Denise Gaines Edmond, who served 30 years in the United States Army and Army Reserves. She hopes to defeat a male Republican incumbent.

The youngest of five children, she and four older brothers grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where she developed a strong work ethic and leadership skills inspired by her family’s military service. She received a business degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and began her military career in 1985. Denise earned an MBA from the University of New Orleans and a Masters in Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College.

As she rose through the ranks, her military specialty became personnel issues covering training and leadership development during both domestic and foreign deployments.  She served as an Army ROTC professor at Ft. Valley State University where she provided guidance and mentoring support to cadets, officers, and students on sound leadership principles.

In retirement, she has become an advocate for the military in the community and shares her leadership development expertise with local nonprofit organizations. She is an inaugural member of the Henry County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a charter member of the Henry-Clayton Section of the National Council of Negro Women, and member of Shiloh Baptist Church.

As HD 109 Representative, she pledges to work toward an expanded and improved Transportation infrastructure to relieve traffic congestion and match the demands of the district’s recent exponential growth. Having raised her son, Patrick, now a student at her North Carolina alma mater, as a single parent, she promises to support measures to provide affordable Healthcare for lower or middle-income families. She will also support increased Educational funding for quality after-school programs and affordable childcare.  Denise is “T.H.E.” Candidate for House 109.

The Georgia’s WIN List Endorsed Candidate for Georgia Lieutenant Governor is Sarah Riggs Amico. Sarah is a proud business owner of Jack Cooper Holdings Corp., employing thousands of union truckers and mechanics as the largest over-the-road transporter of light-vehicles in both the U.S. and Canada. She is a wife, a mother, and believes that there’s no problem we can’t solve if we work together.

Sarah is a product of a public school education, which successfully prepared her to go on to earn her degrees. Sarah graduated from Washington & Lee University with a B.A. in Politics with honors and earned her M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School. She chooses to send her own children to public school in Cobb County because she believes in Georgia’s public education system. She believes that all our children should have the opportunity to reach their potential.

Sarah has spent her career solving problems people thought were not fixable. She strived to make smart investments in her workers at Jack Cooper and to show that doing the ‘right thing’ is the best way to create growth. She will do the same for Georgians – whether red, blue, or purple. She believes that we all deserve better than career politicians offering excuses for unimpressive results.

Sarah intends to increase access to affordable healthcare in Georgia. She believes every Georgia child should have a quality education regardless of their zip code. And she will work for an efficient government that cuts ineffective programs and bureaucratic red tape and taxes. She will strive to develop better job opportunities for all Georgians.

The Georgia’s WIN List Endorsed Candidate for House District 107 is Shelly Hutchinson, who has lived in Gwinnett County for more than twenty years. She and her husband raised two children, grown a highly successful business and developed strong community ties in the district.

She is the founder and director of the Social Empowerment Center, a full-service mental health and social service agency with more than 80 employees serving an 11 county area, which provides quality support to at-risk adults and children. She has long been an advocate for fair and effective mental health policies and programs across Georgia.

With a Bachelors of Arts from Lousiana State and a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Georgia, she founded the center 15 years ago and was recently honored for her business acumen and the rapid growth of her agency by the University of Georgia. Shelly teaches as an adjunct instructor at the University of Georgia both in Athens and Lawrenceville and is Chairperson for Mental Health Local Interagency Planning Teams in Gwinnett and surrounding counties.

Her experience as a social worker, businesswoman and past employee of the Georgia Department of Family and Children Service gives her a unique skill set to not only represent her district well, but also to serve as a knowledgeable resource when fellow legislators discuss the role of mental health in gun violence, Georgia’s growing opioid crisis, and other matters of public policy concerning the state’s network of social services.

Georgia’s WIN List is proud to endorse Sally Harrell for Senate District 40. Sally is a progressive leader, an unrelenting advocate for her community, and a powerful voice which women, children, and minorities can count on. Having dedicated her life to public service, Sally has the unique experience and influence to help build bridges in the Georgia Senate and bring attention to issues that are commonly overlooked.

With her service in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1999 – 2005, Sally is one of the most experienced candidates running for election this year. Prior to serving in the legislature, Sally served as the Executive Director of the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia. She holds a Master of Social Work from the University of Georgia and a Bachelors from Georgia State University.

During Sally’s tenure in the Georgia House of Representatives, she championed a wide range of women and children’s healthcare issues, advocated for access to mental health services, and fought for mandatory school recess for children. As the first representative to bear children during her term, Sally brought her newborn along with her during session. Leading by example not only educated her colleagues on the realities and challenges women face in the workforce, but it also led to the successful passage of the breastfeeding bill.

When Sally served in the Georgia House of Representatives, she carried a yellow card of “Democratic Core Values” with her to guide all of her legislative decisions. On this card, she outlined three requirements in which every piece of legislation must meet in order to get her vote: a positive role for government, social justice, and inclusiveness. Sally continues to live by these values today and intends to carry the same yellow card of values with her when she’s elected as Senator.

Sally has broken through barriers and paved the way for women in the state of Georgia. She has used her voice to advocate relentlessly for children and minorities. We are proud to endorse Sally Harrell for Senate District 40 because we know that she will continue to be the advocate and voice Georgia needs.
