Y’all know that Raphael Warnock and Stacey Abrams are running and need your vote, right? While you’re at it, vote for Bee Nguyen, close ally of Stacey, for Secretary of State. Downballot, lots of Georgia candidates are focused on voting rights, although it’s harder to find climate hawks. Patrick Thompson, in Senate District 56, is a cleantech entrepreneur running on smart climate solutions. In the state house, some standout candidates include Climate Reality-trained Tish Nagise in HD 68, progressive Ruwa Romman in HD 97, and Gabe Okoye in HD 102.
The Georgia Public Service Commission is incredibly important in setting electricity policy, and thus climate policy (along with water rates, utility bills, and more). The November election has been postponed, so be on the lookout for a special election next year.
