Next Monday, October 30th, is Jim's final event of the campaign at The Biltmore, located at 817 West Peachtree Street in Atlanta, at 6:30 p.m.Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and Congressman John Lewis are the honorary co-chairs of the event.
In the race for Lieutenant Governor, only Jim Martin has the experience we need to bring down healthcare costs, bring good-paying jobs to Georgia, and improve student achievement. Jim served for 18 years in the state House, where he was an active member of the Democratic leadership and passed more than 60 laws that improve the lives of Georgians every day. He also led the Department of Human Resources under two governors.Jim is respected statewide as an advocate for children, senior citizens, and families. No candidate in the race for Lieutenant Governor has a comparable record of accomplishment or shares our values more than Jim Martin.That is why Jim has been endorsed by Mayor Shirley Franklin, the Georgia Association of Educators, and leaders from across the state.
