Johns Creek, Dec 10, 2021– Dr. Michelle Au, State Senator for District 48, announced today that she is running for the open seat for State House of Representatives, District 50. Incumbent State Representative Angelica Kausche announced in November 2021 that she will not be running for re-election.
“Senate District 48 was the sole state senate district targeted by the Republican majority in the redistricting process. It’s a little like getting a tough diagnosis. You wish things looked more favorable, but at some point you have to accept the hand that has been dealt, and figure out what comes next,” said Dr. Au in her video statement.
“I came to the Gold Dome to add value for hard-working Georgians and to be put to work to make our state healthier. I’m the only Democratic physician in the General Assembly. I'm the only member with an advanced degree in public health. I’m the first Asian woman to serve in the Georgia Senate. I’ve worked hard to advance common sense, responsible public policy.
While the Republicans can draw me out, they can’t count me out, and I intend to stay right here, continuing to serve my community in the state legislature, and fighting to make Georgia a healthier, safer, and more inclusive state, where everyone’s voices can be heard.”
