Stacey as Policy Leader
From the time she joined the Georgia General Assembly in 2006, Stacey has been an advocate for common-sense legislation to improve opportunity for all Georgians.
Armed with a belief that every problem has a sensible solution and a bipartisan approach, Stacey has championed fair and pragmatic policies to make it easier for Georgians to obtain an education, find and keep quality jobs and raise their families.
As House Minority Leader, Stacey has worked across the aisle to help expand the HOPE Scholarship, protect the elderly, and improve our public school system. She has stood against extreme legislation to limit Georgians’ access to affordable healthcare, infringe on women’s rights and raise taxes on working families.
Stacey has led the House Democratic Caucus to advance a party platform grounded in the inherently Georgian values of educational opportunity, economic security and shared responsibility; and she looks forward to continuing—with your support—to build a better future for our state.
