Additionally, Anna Tillman ran for the Atlanta City Council (District 8), and Laura Rencher ran for mayor of Milton. We commend them for running strong campaigns, and we hope to see their names on ballots in the future.

With the great support we are receiving, we expect these numbers to climb in 2018. However, NewPower PAC endorsements do not occur in a vacuum. Events we conduct through the year prepare our candidates for success, provide opportunities for our volunteers to become more civically engaged, and generate new interest that will help shape our future.
NewPower PAC’s endorsement process is nonpartisan, with no litmus test or party affiliation requirements. We invite women interested in exploring running for office to visit our Candidates page or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
