A Dekalb GOP insider has directed me to the website of Allan Williamson, Finance Director of the Georgia Young Republicans. Allan will be collecting signatures to run for the seat being vacated by Kevin Levitas.
A wonderful opportunity has presented itself to me in the form of my local state Representative announcing his retirement on Friday, May 7.
I have made the decision to run for this vacant seat.
I am confident that I am the most qualified candidate to represent my community. However, due to the unusual circumstances of his announcement taking place after qualifying week concluded, I must file as an independent.
Do you live in Georgia House District 82?
We need your help most of all! Under Georgia Elections law we need to get signatures from 5% of the registered voters in this area to even be listed on the ballot in November. We are confident that Allan is the best candidate, now we just need to give HD 82 the opportunity to vote for him!
I’m told the district was competively challenged a few cycles ago. We’ll see in November, assuming Williamson collects the required number of signatures.
