Plans for Economy
“I am running for families like my own – hard-working men and women who want to support their families with living wages. Georgia’s 12th District workers deserve living wages. Americans deserve living wages – wages that cover the rising costs of comfortable housing, home ownership, meeting monthly bills and saving for comfortable retirement. Living wages sets everyone, on the pathway to achieving and enjoying the American Dream.”
Liz supports decreasing the costs of education opportunities for working families. “I know what it’s like to worry whether public education would be enough for my children and grandchildren, because we couldn’t always afford expensive extracurricular activities for them.”
