Tamara Johnson-Shealey

No prior political experience. Active volunteer with local schools.

Q:  Why should the voters choose you for this position?

A: The voters should choose me for this position because I truly believe it is time that we put people over politics.  It is time that we focus on making our educational system better.  It is time that we expand Medicaid.  It is time that people are paid a livable wage.  It is time that we focus on the people of Georgia.

Q:      What is the biggest issue facing the constituents you seek to represent? How will you address that issue?

A: The biggest issue facing constitutents I seek to represent is the educational system in Georgia.  I will address this issue by diligently working with other elected officials and local school boards to determine the right solutions to move Georgia forward.
