For the past several years, I have been an active voice for you on local matters impacting our community and our quality of life. I humbly ask you to allow me to continue to work for you and our community as Commissioner for District 4. We have issues that continue to rise up in our community each day.

Hello District 4 Voters. First, I want to thank all the voters of the district for participating in the political process and coming back out to vote in the August 11th Runoff. I am deeply grateful you insisted that your voices be heard. As the final ballots were being counted that night, it initially revealed that the community's support of me was the winner at the polls, with 4919 votes being cast for my platform of change for District 4. However, when the final count of absentee ballots was completed, those ballots determined the outcome of the race with my opponent receiving a greater share. This outcome would not change days later as we waited for additional votes to be counted.

Though we were not successful in our quest to bring new leadership and fresh ideas to the County Commission role for District 4, our campaign and supporters are uplifted by the fact that we garnered nearly half of the overall votes counted. This occurred despite the support given to my opponent from the current commissioner, other politicians, and special interest groups who decided that “politicians would decide who would lead our community, not the people of District 4”. The votes our campaign received clearly reflects hope for our future. It reflects discontent with the status quo and an enormous demand for real substantive change, a fact that cannot be ignored or denied. It also sends a strong message that these “voters for change” will be joining me in watching, monitoring, and holding elected officials accountable for what goes on in our community moving forward. with the following Motto: “Our quality of life, our families, and our homes are no longer for sale”.

This election was never about me; it was always about us and everyone around us - families, seniors, veterans, our community - wanting, desiring, and deserving more. I was in this race for over a year and conducted myself in a manner to which my family and community could be proud. I stand by every decision made and every objective factual issues I raised, while in return I was subjected to some of the most mean-spirited, divisive, distasteful, and hateful actions from the very people in our community that would call themselves “leaders”. Instead, many of us see these folks as “obstacles to our community moving forward”.

As taxpayers and homeowners, we have expectations of our government and our community and believe we are entitled to the best quality of life that is obtainable. With that as a backdrop, I have no plans to offer a concessions speech, but instead I offer to our community hope for our better future. It is in this vain that I will continue my work in our community, as I take a page from the playbooks of Hillary Clinton and Stacy Abrams, two fellow political contenders who turned their outcome at the polls into powerful and meaningful movements.

Stay tuned for an announcement on community initiatives we will be launching that will continue what we started at the polls. I encourage each of you who want positive changes in our community to remain vigilant and join me as we continue to fight those politicians, groups, and harmful special interests that are adverse to the health, positive growth, and overall development of South Cobb and District 4.

Again, I humbly thank the voters, true community leaders, and others who supported me through this process and those who helped me until the last vote was counted. Our work has just begun, and I look forward to partnering with you to continue what we started.

Sorry you didn’t win

Well said Shelia E!!! well said. Thank you for having the courage and the vision for the needed change in our community. We do not want the same of the same moving forward. South Cobb District 4, has been neglected on going. As a home owner and taxpayer I refuse to sit and watch our district deteriorate any further. I’m looking forward to your next venture. 🙏🏽👍🏽🤗🌹😎❤️

Attention District 4 Voters - The Deadline to Cure Your Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots is Friday, August 14, 2020,
Thank you to the District 4 voters who participated in the August 11, Runoff Election that was held yesterday. I have been informed by the Cobb County Board of Elections that it has hundreds of votes to count before the election for Cobb County Commissioner for District 4 can be certified.

These uncounted votes fall into two categories, Deficient Provisional Ballots and Absentee Ballots that need signature (i.e. signature needs to be verified) or information cures (i.e. information needs to be provided or verified). I am told that action is required by the voter for these votes to be counted.

The Cobb Board of Elections informed me that it has sent letters to all voters that fall into these categories. If you have received this letter from the Board of Elections, please respond immediately to their office by close of business on Friday, August 14, 2020. If you have questions or concerns about this process or how your vote was handled on Tuesday, please contact Attorney Terry Cummings, who can assist you with getting the matter cured and your vote counted at: terrycummings360@gmail.com

The position of my campaign is that the election process is not over until every vote is counted, which was reinforced by the Georgia Secretary of State's Office in their memo on Post-Election Instructions Re: Absentee and Provisional Ballots

Our campaign is relying on the Cobb Board of Elections and the Georgia Secretary of State's Office to ensure that this process is followed based on this information and that all votes in this runoff election are counted.

My advocacy on ensuring that every vote is counted embraces Stacey Abrams' commitment to ensuring every vote is counted through Fair Fight, a 20-state, multimillion dollar campaign to promote free and fair elections.​
