Another candidate has added her name to the growing list of candidates hoping to become the next representative of state House District 54.

Beth Beskin is currently an attorney, with Cohen, Cooper, Estep, & Allen. In 2010, she was a candidate for state Senate District 38.

House District 54 is currently represented by Rep. Ed Lindsey, R- Atlanta, who is leaving to run for the U.S. House seat being vacated by Rep. Phil Gingrey.

“I’m a small government Republican,” Beskin said in her campaign announcement. “I’m running for the House because we need true conservative legislators who will work to reduce the size of government and reduce its ever-increasing intrusion into our daily lives.”
