KEATLEY ANNOUNCES RUN FOR GEORGIA LABOR COMMISSIONER
[February 9, 2018] After consulting with friends, family and the Keatley for Change campaign committee for the Georgia 6th District Congressional race, Richard Keatley has decided to make a shift and run instead for the job of Georgia Labor Commissioner, which he feels is better suited to his background and capabilities.
As Georgia Labor Commissioner, Keatley will focus on enhancing jobs and the work force. He understands that Georgians need a Democrat in this job, one who cares about working families, and understands their needs and aspirations.
Join him in this campaign for Georgia Labor Commissioner.
The Time is Now! Last Chance to Make the Blue Wave a Reality! Critical Moment in the Keatley Campaign.
[December 30, 2017] Richard Keatley has had a great Fall and has been working full time to project forward his candidacy as a Democrat in Georgia's 6th Congressional District race for 2018. We are now reaching an important mile stone which is the first financial filing of the race with a deadline of the end of 2017. Only what is donated before the New Year bell rings counts toward this filing, and it is critical to recruiting future donors to make our fledgling grass roots candidacy a reality! We are asking you to donate now. Richard is running on a platform of:
--standing up against TRUMP for our entitlements including healthcare (ACA), social security and Medicare which the Republicans want to take away
--fighting for the rights of veterans (which Richard understands as a Navy veteran of the Persian Gulf War)
--creating jobs and opportunities for the citizens of our district, including the ability of students to graduate from college without debt.
Hillary Clinton and John Ossoff made great efforts and brought us close to the goal post coming within 2% of their Republican challengers in Georgia's 6th, but we believe we can make it happen and let the Blue Wave roll across the South from Alabama to Georgia! But we cannot do it without you!
Give what you can today! We need you! Donate what you can here.
