For those of us who have had the priviledge to deal with Georgia State Rep. from the 86th District, Karla Drenner, we're used to her heartfelt closing salutation, "love and light." As Georgia's first openly gay holder of elected office, she's been the lifeboat that the LGBT community has clung to. When issues like the gay marriage ban amendment come up, it's Karla who's always at the eye of the storm.
Let's not forget that Karla, who has done so much for so many people in her Dekalb Co. district, has competition this year in the Democratic primary. She's not just a gay rights advocate. She's deeply committed to envirnomental issues as well as child welfare issues. Karla's made her mark in many, many different areas. Evidently, her opponent feels that she can better represent the 86th district. I beg to differ. Karla's earned our love and support. So I would urge you to please support her campaign with your money and /or your time. Even if you don't live in the 86th district, think of what she means to the state of Georgia. Lets return the favor to Karla Drenner, and send the message to her foes that she's here to stay!
Love and light Karla!
