Brookhaven, GA, July 7, 2015 – The Post – Brookhaven Resident Lil Woolf has submitted the following Letter to the Editor titled Why I am voting for Taylor Bennett for House District 80 on July 14.
From Ms. Woolf:
I met statehouse candidate Taylor Bennett a few weeks ago and have spent two evenings in conversation with him. I am very impressed with this young man. He exudes honesty, integrity and intelligence. He has compassion for those who need an advocate and he speaks up for fairness in the workplace daily as he represents workers and employers alike.
Taylor knows both sides of the employee/employer issues our economy faces, and he works to bring fair resolutions to them. He approaches issues from a positive, can-do perspective and seeks out solutions that ensure that everyone can benefit.
Treating teachers fairly and decently is a top priority of his, and making public schools work again with proper funding is one of his goals. For too long our schools have suffered continuing loss of funding that puts Georgia near the bottom of the list of states; Taylor wants that trend to be reversed.
Thankfully, Taylor is supportive of equality for all Georgians, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. He can help move our state forward with regards to equality and respect for all, and he will strongly oppose any legislation that attempts to marginalize any of our citizens.
What most impressed me about Taylor is his ethics. He is running a clean campaign with no bad-mouthing his opponents and he doesn’t try to win votes with a one-issue format. While others are promoting anger at DeKalb County for homeowners’ property tax increases and using this as their only issue, Taylor’s campaign is positive as he looks to the future for District 80’s residents in ways that can improve all of our lives. Similarly, he also promises to look at all sides of an issue, rather than voting simply on blind ideological grounds. This demonstrates to me a high degree of integrity and a commitment to true, bipartisan public service.
If you live in the House District 80, please consider this outstanding candidate to fill this vacant seat. Taylor is dynamic, articulate and would be a great Democratic voice for Brookhaven and ultimately all of Georgia. This young man will be a great legislator and has a very promising future. I am pleased to support such an honest candidate. Please vote for Taylor Bennett on July 14.
