Georgia’s largest association of Democratic young professionals—Red Clay Democrats—has endorsed Vinings businessman Erick Allen in his campaign to represent House District 40. Red Clay Democrats, formed in 2002 by former state senator and gubernatorial candidate Jason Carter, among others, has long sought to promote and support young Democrats running for office across Georgia.
“Red Clay Democrats strives to identify principled young candidates across Georgia who we believe best exemplify our commitment to a more inclusive and progressive Georgia. Erick Allen certainly fits that mold,” said Red Clay President Matthew Weiss. “As an entrepreneur, former state executive, and new father, we know that Erick will fight for policies that increase access to affordable healthcare, promote small business growth, expand public transit, and improve our public schools. Red Clay Democrats is proud to support Erick in his candidacy for House District 40.”
“I am very grateful and humbled by the support of Red Clay Democrats,” said Allen. “They have supported some outstanding candidates in the last few years alone, including State Rep. Stacey Evans, Rep. Scott Holcomb, and Rep. Taylor Bennett. I intend to reward their faith in me by fighting for HOPE, safer communities, stronger schools, and an inclusive Georgia alongside those public servants and others under the Gold Dome this January.”
Erick lives in Vinings with his wife Dr. Tameka Allen and their baby daughter.
