Forsyth County Conservative Sheri Gilligan to Campaign for Georgia State House
Cumming— Sheri Smallwood Gilligan publicly announces her intention to qualify as a Republican candidate for the election to the Georgia House of Representatives, District 24.

Citing failed leadership in Atlanta, Gilligan, a conservative leader and activist, said she looks forward to uniting all of Forsyth County in her bid for the House.

Gilligan graduated from Forsyth County High School in 1981. Back then she was known as Sheri Smallwood. For generations, her families were poor dirt farmers off of Franklin Goldmine Rd. Her parents sacrificed so that she could have opportunities they never had.

She graduated from the University of Georgia and went on to work for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Her work with the CIA helped protect us from national threats. Now she wants to protect us from overbearing, tyrannical government.

Now, more than ever, we need a new leader, one not beholden to politics over sound constitutional government.

“I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of support from the community," Gilligan said. "This is my home. I love my county and my state and my country. We have to come together united and stand up for our conservative, pro-family, pro-God values.“
 
Gilligan will focus much of her campaign on providing ethical and accountable leadership. If elected, she will fight Obamacare and Common Core.

She believes that the best government is a small government. Fiscally, she will work to end the income tax and lower our tax burden while maintaining our way of life.

“I will listen to you," she said. "Over the next 80 days I will engage in a door to door listening tour. I want to hear your concerns, and if given the privilege, will be your voice in Atlanta.”

Gilligan and her husband will celebrate 23 years of marriage this fall. They have four adult children and two grandchildren. They worship, and are active members, at First Redeemer Church.
