“I am honored to have the opportunity to come back to my old stomping grounds,” said Allen. “Having the support of my home state tells me that I am on the right path to becoming the first Black Lieutenant Governor in the Deep South. While I serve in Georgia, I remember the lessons I learned at home in Nashville. From the lecture halls of Belmont University to the pews in my father’s church, I am thankful for these memories and honored to have the support of this community as I make change in Georgia.”
Allen is a current member of the Georgia General Assembly and leader of the Cobb County delegation. He launched his campaign in March on a platform of economic recovery and expansion of Medicaid in order to restore faith in state leadership.
