Platform Objectives

  • Access to quality and affordable healthcare.

    All citizens deserve access to quality healthcare.  Derek is working to expand Medicaid to cover more low income Georgians.  He is also committed to obtaining more funding and resources for mental healthcare. 

  • Ensure a quality education for all students.

    Education is the key to Georgia’s continued economic growth.  Good schools and an educated workforce will bring new jobs to our state, ensuring a healthy economy.

    Derek wants to increase teacher’s salaries to make them the highest paid in the country and create incentives to keep them in the classrooms.

  • Create more affordable housing.

    Families, especially our senior citizens and veterans, are in need of more housing that is affordable and available. Derek is also working toward solutions where medical debt does not prevent potential homeowners from purchasing a home.

  • Reform our juvenile justice system.

    Reduce the number of youth in detention centers by shifting the focus from punishment to rehabilitation and prevention.  This also has the potential to decrease the number of re-offenders.
