Leigh is a wife and a mother of three small kids. She was born and raised in Georgia, and attended the University of Georgia and Emory School of Law. She is a successful attorney, who practiced defense and liability litigation. Now, she and her husband are busy co-owners of an agritourism small business in North Georgia.
Leigh is running for State House because one of her beautiful daughters was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and is dependent on the life-necessary medication, insulin. Insulin prices have increased 700 percent over the last 20 years, resulting in a person with Type-1 diabetes spending on average $5,700 per year on insulin. That’s completely unsustainable for the average Georgia family. Leaving it up to the insurance companies to fix the problem is not working. In fact, the problem is getting worse.
Leigh knows that it’s time to stand up to health insurance companies. It’s time to take on pharmaceutical companies and their long list of lobbyists. It’s time to make health care more affordable for real Georgia families.
Leigh also envisions a Hall County with fully funded schools, that are safe for our kids AND our teachers, a business-friendly environment that attracts good companies with good jobs to Hall County, and a Lake Lanier ecosystem with clean water and clean air that supports our families and our communities.
Nothing is stronger than a mother protecting her child. Not partisan politics. Not ‚Äúpolitics as usual.‚Äù As our next State Representative, Leigh will fight to protect and serve your family just as hard as she fights to protect her own.
