2014 Common Cause Georgia Democracy Awards

Every year, passionate individuals step forward to make a positive difference at the state and local levels of government. Common Cause Georgia is proud to honor public officials, members of the media and citizens who have made a real difference in Georgia by working to improve our democracy.

We usually have several awardees per category because year after year, there are people who really step up and deserve recognition. 2014 is no exception! Because there have been employees of government agencies who blew the whistle on unethical conduct, we have added a whistleblower category. This year, we will also recognize one overall winner for each category and will award.


And the winners are!

The windows of my front french doors appear as angel wings over my shoulders. This image reminds me of the silent movie my late physicist-father made of his eight children playacting the nativity scene to celebrate Christmas. My older sister played the role of Mother Mary; my six brothers played Joseph, the three Kings bearing gifts, the angel Gabriel, and little baby Jesus; and I played another angel. My angel wings were made of wire coat hangers and white pillowcases. PHOTO CREDIT: Cooper Tisdale
