…Intown Atlanta, that is.
I’m a good democrat, defined in Georgia as one who votes for republicans less than 50% of the time.
I was born in this fine state, and other than brief stints in New York and DC, I’ve called it my home. I went to Wake Forest (back when it was cheap), Georgia State (back before football), and University of Georgia Law school (back when it was good).
In my past I was a Capitol Hill staffer for Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Denise Majette (remember when?) before working statewide races in Georgia for four years.
I was the Finance Director for Mark Taylor’s run for Governor in 2006, a Finance Consultant to Jim Martin’s Lieutenant Governor campaign in the same cycle, and in the previous cycle, I was Deputy Communications Director for Denise Majette’s Senate run.
So I am used to being on the losing end of statewide campaigns. To be a Democratic Operative in Georgia, you have to stomach losing and make compromises. After 2006, I decided I was done doing both (at the same time anyway).
So I occasionally consult, and otherwise limit my involvement to fundraising. Toward that end, I am the Vice Chairman of the Civil Justice PAC, and, as of this post, a member of the Democratic Party of Georgia Finance Committee.
In my spare time, I am an Employment Attorney and play that most socialist of sports, soccer.
Other socialist endeavors in which I am secondarily involved include urban planning, transportation, and complaining.
I am a longtime reader and commenter on this site and I am very excited to be more involved.
