Bernard to challenge Jacobs for District 80 State Rep seat | Brookhaven GA | The Brookhaven Post

BROOKHAVEN, Georgia – Ashford Park resident Catherine Bernard welcomed friends and supporters to her home on Saturday, where she formally announced her decision to run for state representative for House District 80.

 

Bernard, an Emory University graduate who now works as an attorney, discussed her experiences in the Georgia Republican Party and how it motivated her to get involved in politics.  “I know what it takes to stand up to the people who are causing the problems, and I’m going to do it,” Bernard said.  “There are structural problems with our system of government, and they’re not going to be addressed by the people who are just going along to get along.”

 

Bernard acknowledged that some might consider advocacy for freedom, limited government, and the Constitution to be extreme, but pointed out how these issues ultimately affect each and every citizen.  She shared how her experiences as a public defender had opened her eyes to the worst excesses of big government, and asked the crowd for support in the fight to make government more accountable and responsive to the will of the citizens.  Tell your friends, she said, “I know someone who believes in limited government, and is willing to fight for it.”
