Dear editor:

I entered the campaign for House District 113 as a public servant. My goal is never self-gratification, but I offered myself as a servant to be used for the betterment of all — to serve people young, old and of all races, creeds and religion, from the penthouse to the projects. I am poised now to help make District 113 even better as we work together.

God has given me a vision for the people, and now I can make this vision a reality. I aim to unify for the advancement of the people in every aspect. For 30 years, I was always instrumental in helping people in the community and getting things done. I am dedicated to the educational advancement of young people. I believe wholeheartedly in supporting seniors, veterans and the special needs community, etc. I also feel that successful women should have a herd of other successful women supporting them without jealousy.

People feel left out, people feel invisible, people want money back in their pockets. I am an advocate for domestic violence prevention, gun violence prevention and affordable housing initiatives. As we proceed we will make Newton and Rockdale counties the city on a hill, shine even brighter.

I am humbled that you chose me to represent you as House of Representatives-elect for District 113.

Sharon Henderson

Representative-elect

House District 113
