Rep. Wilkerson Announces Re-election Campaign

The Democrat's District 38 includes portions of Austell, Mableton, Powder Springs and Smyrna.

By David Wilkerson

On July 20, 2010, you elected me to be your voice in the Georgia House of Representatives. I had recently finished my term as chairman of the Cobb County Democratic Party and worked with many of you during the historic election of President Barack Obama.

It has been an honor to serve you for the past two years. As a legislator, I have had some tough decisions to make, which impacted the lives of Georgians. I am proud to say that your input has always guided those decisions I made and the votes I have cast.

There is still work to be done at the Capitol. We continue to face tough economic times, and traditional public education is under attack. I want to be there to represent you.

I have decided to seek re-election to the Georgia House. While my district has not changed significantly, I will have a new district number because of reapportionment. I will now be running in the 38th House District.

I ask today for your continued support and your vote on July 31 in the Democratic Primary.

Thank you Representative Wilkerson for running for re-election. In our county representatives are rarely seen, except to their lobbyist supporters. Representative Wilkerson, you have consistently reached out to your constituents, solicited their opinions, and answered their questions. I can’t remember the name of your predecessor and I doubt if many people can. In one term, you have proven to be one of the smartest and hardest working members of the Georgia Legislature. I look forward to seeing you at future town hall meetings, at the North Georgia Fair, and all the opportunities where you reach out to your many friends in House District 38. You are a breath of fresh air and all I can say is thank you, thank you.
