Special Message from Barbara Seidman
Hello! I’m Barbara Seidman, and I want to be your Representative for Georgia's First Congressional District. I currently reside in Waycross, Georgia with my husband and our five-year-old daughter. I am a former Early Childhood Education teacher, retired truck driver, and current boutique owner. As your next elected representative, I am committed to public servitude and equal representation for every resident residing in Georgia's First Congressional District.
Immediately upon being elected, I will sponsor bills that will strengthen all facets of our district farming industry, which includes the growers, the farming equipment dealerships, small trucking transports, and the tractor trailers that distribute goods all across our great country.
As a military spouse and mother, I understand firsthand the disparities our veterans have endured after serving our country and the resources needed to live productive lives. Our district has four military bases within it, our country has one of the largest defense budgets in the world, and none of our military families should have to depend on government subsidies to feed their families. Once in Washington, I will fight hard to make sure military families are paid lifestyle wages, able to obtain quality affordable healthcare, and mental healthcare that addresses combat-inflicted illnesses such as PTSD .
All Americans should be afforded a lifestyle that is conducive to a quality of life that is often descibed as the American Dream. As your future Congresswoman, I will fight for a lifestyle wage for all. We cannot continue to sit idle while our wealth gap continues to get larger and hardworking Americans labor protections are stripped away. We must also fight for the sustainability of our future generations: we must equip them with quality education, strengthen our special education services, and seek innovative ways of teaching that embrace the new emerging cyber world, which has opened more channels of learning than you could ever imagine.
Each year somewhere in our district, some form of natural disaster either targets us or impacts us. We must take measures to better prepare all of us - not just a chosen section - for what could happen. I will seek funding that will create programs that train everyone on how to prepare before, during, and after any of our district's climate emergencies. I am Barbara Seidman, and I want to work for all in order to be the Peoplecrat representative that we have all been waiting for.
