Sheri Smallwood Gilligan announces bid for State House D24 in Special Election

Cumming— Sheri Smallwood Gilligan publicly announces her intention to qualify as a Republican for the election for Georgia House District 24. Citing failed leadership in Atlanta, Mrs. Gilligan, a conservative leader who ran for the post in 2014, said she looks forward to uniting all of Forsyth County in her bid for the House.

Upon graduating from the University of Georgia, Gilligan served our nation in the United States Navy Reserves; her career path led her to work for the CIA as an intelligence analyst and finally home to Forsyth County to teach at Lanier Tech.

Her work with the Central Intelligence Agency helped protect us from national threats.  Now Sheri Gilligan wants to protect our area from an overreaching government.  We need a leader who will fight tax increases, support the 1st Amendment and religious freedom, and zealously represent the individual.

“I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of support from the community.  This is my home.  I love my country, state, and county.  We need to come together and stand up for our conservative, pro-family, pro-God values.“ stated Gilligan.

Sheri Gilligan will focus much of her campaign on returning Forsyth County to the people.   “Representative government is only achieved when those entrusted with authority listen to those they represent” stated Gilligan.   “I want Forsyth County to be the best place to live, raise a family, and run a business.  Quality of life is important.  Smart, managed growth is necessary.”  Sheri Gilligan will stand up for better representation of all of Forsyth.

“I will listen to you.  Over the next two months, I will engage in an aggressive outreach to contact every voter.  I want to hear your concerns, and if given the privilege, will be your voice in Atlanta.”

Sheri, and her husband will celebrate 24 years of marriage this fall.  They have four adult children and two grandchildren.  The Gilligans worship, and are active members, at First Redeemer Church.
