You can bet on Betsy to do right by the women of Georgia. Take a look at the candidate spotlight from the National Organization for Women. Text is below.
“With 30 days to go until Election Day, let’s get to know Betsy Holland, candidate for Georgia House District 54.
What made you decide to run?
My district is considered one of the most flippable in the state, and the party was actively recruiting for a viable democrat. I spend much of the Georgia legislative session yelling at my dining room table or my office desk about what’s happening at the state capitol. I figured if I ran for office, I could try yelling under the Gold Dome and potentially affect actual change.
Why do you think you will win?
My district understands that partisan, right-wing legislation is not only bad for our families but it’s also impeding growth in our business community. Standing up for women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, healthcare access and quality education aren’t just the right thing to do, they’re also good for economic growth for our region.
Once you are in office, what’s on the top of your “to do” list?
It’s time to stem the tide of gun violence by putting common sense regulations around firearms in Georgia. I will also address the healthcare crisis in our state with expanded health insurance for the working families that currently fall in the coverage gap. Finally, I will focus on investing in transit and infrastructure that will alleviate the growing traffic problems in Georgia.
What is your campaign theme song?
I listen to Keala Settle singing “This is Me” from the Greatest Showman on my way to campaign events!
What or who inspires you to keep going when things get tough?
I have a seven year old son who is my greatest campaign supporter. What kind of world do I want him to grow up in? That’s what drives my vision for Georgia and keeps me going on tough days. He also gives great snuggles at the end of a tiring day.
