Why I’m Running

Don’t you ever wonder if you could do better? In District 106 I’ve watched year after year. No choice has been available in our election for the Georgia House of Representatives. If there’s no choice, there’s no democracy. I’ve spoken with my neighbors. I’ve been involved in the community. I’ve watched my children grow up with this district. I know there are people out there also looking for more. I’m one of those people.

So here’s my deal for you: Send me to the Statehouse, and: I will fight for transit expansion. I will take your commute seriously. Life is too short to spend it in traffic. I will fight for health care coverage for every Georgian including a family doctor for every family. Nobody should go bankrupt because they get sick. I will fight to get our public schools funded and our teachers paid what they deserve. Your children should have the best. This issue is too important to be left to career politicians. Roads. Doctors. Schools. The people of District 106 deserve a choice. Elect Emily Leslie in 2020, and reclaim your voice. You are the people of 106. You are not a rubber-stamp district. You deserve better.

My Priorities for Georgia House District 106!

As your state legislator, I will be an effective and vocal advocate for everyone in my district. I am dedicated to making Gwinnett County a welcoming community that we can all feel proud to call home. You can depend on me to work tirelessly by:

A FAMILY DOCTOR FOR EVERY FAMILY

Healthcare is a human right. Georgia must expand Medicaid and stand with the people who rely on it for their healthcare. Emily will continue to stand up for healthcare for all.

CLEAN ENERGY IS THE FUTURE

Emily will make sure we make wise decisions to safeguard the climate and adopt clean energy solutions that protect our air, soil water, and wildlife! Our kids are counting on us to make decisions that protect their playgrounds and parks from pollution.

SCHOOLS GWINNETT WILL BE PROUD OF

Emily believes that performance testing has become excessive, students are missing out on the fun and creative aspect of learning. Bring back recess and art for our kids, and let our teachers use their planning time to create new ways to connect and encourage the individual interests and passions of our children.

A WELCOMING COMMUNITY FOR ALL

Our community only thrives when every person is welcomed. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing: to provide for our families. Emily will support an equitable government that strengthens District 106.

Emily’s opponent has run unopposed for years. Democracy is about choice,  Emily has seen to it that District 106 now has just that. A choice in representation.

About Emily

My name is Emily Leslie. I’m different from most of the people who run for office. I was raised by a family who believed in serving their neighbors. My grandparents were teachers, and my parents were social workers. Public service is in my blood. In our house, we believed in the community. We believed in standing up for the needs of the community. That’s what I was taught, and that’s what I still believe. 
When I grew up, I decided to make community activism my job.  Over the years, I’ve helped people in crisis. I’ve fought for human rights. I’ve organized for a more representative democracy with progressive organizations. It’s been a long, satisfying career.
I believe we have a moral duty to help people who are battling mental health issues and addiction. These two problems tend to intersect. We all know somebody who is bearing this burden. Nobody should have to face that battle alone. When I worked as a peer counselor, I saw so many people fighting to make their situations better. It wasn’t for lack of trying. Rather, it was because our society didn’t give them the tools they needed to succeed.
Our elected officials keep themselves distant from these daily struggles. That has to end. Friends, I am not running for this office as a politician. Like you, all I want to do is help.
I’m Em. I’m your neighbor. There is a person behind these words.
My story is your story. I know the ups and downs of raising kids, supporting an extended family, and trying my best to help my family. Our representatives should fight to make life better, to make your life easier. Democracy means everyone gets a seat at the table. Nobody is left out.
If you elect me, I will fight for you. I will build on my years as a community advocate. With Emily Leslie in the Statehouse, your voice will be heard loud and clear in Atlanta.
Emily
