Greater Georgia Launches Candidate Recruitment Program to Help Conservatives Run for Local Office in Cities Across the State

Greater Georgia, a nonprofit organization focused on voter engagement in the state, announced the launch of its first-ever candidate recruitment program ahead of the November 2023 municipal election.

The organization’s 2023 Candidate Recruitment Program will “focus on recruiting a class of conservatives to run in open and toss-up seats in cities across the state” for the office of mayor, city council, and others.

The organization will also equip candidates with the resources and training to run winning campaigns.

“In Georgia and across the country, the Left is organizing to take control of cities and counties by recruiting candidates to carry out a dangerous progressive agenda that fundamentally upends public safety, education, and our way of life at the local level,” Greater Georgia Chairwoman and former Georgia U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler said in a statement. “This year, Greater Georgia is going on offense with a program designed to recruit top-tier candidates and empower them with the tools to run and win.”

“By building a strong bench, we’ll be better prepared to take back our communities – and deliver strong conservative leadership where it matters most,” Loeffler continued.

On Twitter, Loeffler added, “A good offense is the best defense against the far-Left. Families and small businesses deserve strong conservative leadership at the municipal level!”

Greater Georgia’s candidate qualifying period runs from August 21 – August 25. Those interested in running for office must fill out a candidate interest form on the organization’s website.

Georgia’s 2023 municipal elections will be held Tuesday, November 7.

Greater Georgia was formed by Loeffler in 2021 with a goal of “growing participation in the democratic process by mobilizing and empowering voters,” according to its website. The organization works year-round to “educate and register voters, engage with diverse and underrepresented communities, and protect election integrity.”
