Georgia Equality's List of Endorsees

GE's list is short, but sweet. Check it out to see who GE is supporting, and who is supporting the LGBT community in Georgia:

Georgia Equality has announced its endorsed candidates for the 2006 General Election.
To be considered for endorsement, candidates had to complete a detailed questionnaire with their stand on issues of LGBT equality and many were interviewed. Each candidate was also required to sign a pledge to oppose any attempt to restrict equality for LGBT Georgians.

Endorsed Candidates

Lt. Governor:

Jim Martin

State Senate:

SD 32; Ruth E. Levy
SD 41; Steve Henson
SD 46; Jane Kidd

State House:

HD 46; Melanie Eyre
HD 48, Jan Hackney
HD 72; Kevin Madden
HD 80; Mike Jacobs
HD 81; Jill Chambers
HD 95; George Wilson

Fulton County Commission:

Chair; John Eaves
Commission District 2: Bill Loughrey

** On a personal note, I'd just like to say that I'm sorry to hear that Chuck Bowen is leaving GE as executive director. Word come down about 10 days ago that his 2 year tenure was coming to an end. Hopefully he'll hang around Atlanta. I enjoy his friendship and counsel.
