I am Andrea Leigh Farnham. I am a mom, a wife, a therapist, a business owner & a long-term renter in the Eastside community of Athens.
As a therapist I see the struggles families go through when under the stress of poverty and discrimination. I look around my community and I see the fruits of 8.5 Billion dollars in wealth that Athens' controls and the pains of a 34% poverty rate that commission after commission refuses to address. I am running for District 8 County Commissioner to address the racial, social, and economic inequalities within Athens and District 8.
I am not afraid to tell anyone and everyone why and how racial inequality needs to be addressed in the city of Athens. But this campaign is not about me. It is about you. You in District 8 and throughout Athens.
