I’m glad to hear that Allan closing in on the signatures necessary to qualify. He’s a hard worker and has my support in his bid for State House District 82. Congrats on qualifying Allan! Now go get ’em!
ATLANTA – Local businessman and political activist Allan Williamson has qualified and paid the $400 filing fee to run for State Representative of House District 82. Williamson is closing in on the nearly 1,300 signatures he needs to be on the ballot as an independent in the fall. Because the incumbent announced he would not run for re-election after the qualifying period closed, Williamson’s only chance to be on the ballot is to gather signatures via petition –an arduous task that is rarely successful in Georgia.
“I have met thousands of voters as my team and I have canvassed this district,” said Williamson. “This district is blessed with many involved and educated voters who all agree we deserve a choice in selecting our State House Representative.”Politically active for many years, Williamson has won numerous leadership awards. As a project manager for a technology company, he has overseen multi-million dollar projects from inception to completion. An active member of his community, Allan belongs to the Tucker Civic Association; hosted the Randolph Estates Garden Club and is a member of the Northlake GMAC Toastmasters.
“I look forward to representing a community where my family has a long history,” said Williamson. “My grandparents both graduated from Tucker High School and my dad grew up on Dresden Drive when it was still a dirt road. We need a Representative in this district who knows this area, understands its needs, and who will represent the district with honor.”
Williamson and his wife, Leah, have an infant son, Eli. They attend Briarlake Baptist Church.
House District 82 includes the communities of Briarlake, Brockett, Embry Hills, Evansdale, Hawthorne, Henderson Mill, Heritage, Lakeside, Livsey, Midvale, Northlake, Pleasantdale and Tucker.
