Allen Thornell for State House Rep. District 58
The former director of Georgia Equality is running for a seat in the House. Allen Thornell has a good record of public service and will make an excellent ally for Karla Drenner, Kecia Cunningham, and other gay friendly officials. Check out his website for his platform that includes: schools, healthy families, good jobs, and transportation.
I am particularly excited about Allen's wishes for high speed rail, alternative fuel sources, and more parks, bike paths, etc. He's obviously very conscious of the environment, which I always prize in a candidate. It looks like to me he wants to take common sense approaches to these issues to ensure that living in Atlanta will continue to be a great thing.
If these issues are important to you too, you might want to give him a shout.....................
