In House District 48, which includes parts of Sandy Springs and Roswell, Republican Harry Geisinger, the incumbent, is being challenged again by Democrat Jan Hackney. Hackney deserves the support of voters.
In his favor, Geisinger supports a regional approach to mass transit and to financing for Grady. But too often he has voted for legislation endorsed by his party but that's not in the best interest of Georgians. And Geisinger favors more tax breaks for retirees, a fiscally unsound policy that leaves middle-class Georgia families footing most of the tax bill.
Hackney is well versed on important issues. Her advocacy for educational improvement in the state and openness in government is a critical need in the General Assembly.
Okay folks, let's go spread the good word!
