Brookhaven, GA, July 23, 2015 – by Lil Woolf – Make no mistake; the runoff vote on August 11 for the House seat in District 80 is crucial. There are many issues at stake that affect not only our communities and district, but the entire state as well.
While one candidate uses scare tactics surrounding a single issue as his only battlecry, Taylor Bennett quietly reminds voters that he is for equality for all people; he is for fairness in the workplace; he is for improving the school system so all children have an equal chance to succeed and teachers and staff are compensated fairly, and he is for improving our transportation system. He opposes any legislation which promotes discrimination or inequity. While recognizing that many areas need to be fixed in our district and even our state, Taylor’s approach is one of a “can do” attitude. Compared to the negativity emanating from his opponent’s campaign, I couldn’t be happier to support his bid to bring that positivity and trust to the Capitol.
The voter turnout for the August 11 race is critical. Taylor Bennett will fill a pivotal seat, and those who want to see this honest, trustworthy, transparent and hard-working, not-beholden to anyone candidate win, must be sure to get to the polls to vote for Taylor and encourage others of like mind to do the same.
Brookhaven’s brief existence has been sullied by too much drama and controversy already. We cannot allow that culture to prevail as we choose our next state representative. The right (as in correct) person to send to the Georgia Legislature as our new representative is Taylor Bennett.
