Senator Horacena Tate Endorses Doug

sen_tateState Senator Horacena Tate (D-Atlanta) announced today that she is endorsing Doug Haines in Georgia’s 12th District Democratic Primary. Dr. Tate, who is serving her third term as the State Senator from Georgia’s 38th District, is a member of the Appropriations Committee, as well as the Committee on Children and Youth, and the Senate Retirement Committee.

In a statement released today, Senator Tate said, "From working with Doug Haines on the Appropriations Committee, I know that Doug has the right priorities when it comes to budgeting money for the programs that keep our communities strong. Doug won’t waste taxpayer money on giveaways to the wealthy and tax cuts for corporate-jet conservatives, he will put our government to work for us, in our communities."

As a State Senator, Doug was instrumental in securing funding for the hiring of new teachers and for construction of new schools, despite statewide budget cuts.

Tate also said, "Doug Haines has always fought for working families, and the children of those working families. I’m pleased to lend my voice to a statewide effort to elect a real progressive Democrat who will stand up to George Bush and Max Burns."
