Love her or hate her, there was a time in Georgia politics where everyone had to fear her. But now, Sadie Fields has decided to suspend the activities of the Georgia Christian Alliance, and place herself into somewhat of a political retirement.
Since 1997 I have had the privilege of working with you to further our conservative values in the political arena. First as head of the Christian Coalition of Georgia and more recently the Georgia Christian Alliance.
It has been a wonderful journey, and as I have said many times before – memories of our times together are woven into the fabric of my life. I cherish each moment – each memory.
Throughout all these years we have worked together in our common quest to return this state and country to the vision of our Founding Fathers. There is still much to do – now more than ever. I know you – as I – will continue in the battle.
A time for change comes to us all. It is now my time for a change and I wanted to let you know that I am taking a leave of absence from my current position as State Chairman of the Georgia Christian Alliance. While I will no longer serve in that capacity, I will continue to work toward furthering our conservative agenda in other ways.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks once again for your support and encouragement over the years. You are my extended family – and I sincerely appreciate each one of you.
I am looking forward to what the Lord has for me in the future and I ask for your prayers as I begin another chapter in the book that is called my life.
God bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you – and give you peace.
It’s true that her power as an individual or that of social conservative groups in general peaked about a decade ago. But Fields is still able to command an audience, and the respect of those who want to advance in Republican politics in this state. While it’s clear she wants to scale back a bit, I don’t expect her to go away. She’s made her niche, and I expect candidates will continue to seek her support and involvement for election cycles to come.
