State House of Representatives, District 35
Elizabeth Webster is a 25-year resident of House District 35, which includes Kennesaw and Acworth. She is proud to call Georgia home. Over the years she has been actively engaged with her community as a Community Emergency Response Team member, as a part of the Medical Response Corp, and as a former Alumni Board Director for Kennesaw State University.
All her life, Elizabeth worked hard to make the most out of every opportunity. As a child, she lived through extreme poverty and homelessness, but did not let that define her. She went on to achieve an MBA from Kennesaw State University, a MSPP from Georgia Institute of Technology, and a PhD in Epidemiology at Walden University. She has worked in public health addressing chronic disease and strengthening health systems domestically and internationally. She is truly the manifestation of her immigrant father’s and grandfather’s dreams. Elizabeth’s family immigrated from Italy and the Caribbean for a better life. She fundamentally understands the dreams and struggles of immigrants, the impoverished, and the importance of health.
As a proud single mother, of a young adult daughter, educated in the Cobb County public school system, who holds a BA, MA and a JD, Elizabeth is a passionate advocate for public school education, reproductive justice and women’s wellness.
Elizabeth believes that the rights and interests of all people in House District 35, not just a select few, should be represented at the Georgia State Capital. She is running because her voice and others like her are not being represented in Georgia. She is running because the current House Representative seems to hate women and has a focus on creating, advocating and pushing through some of the most anti-women legislation that anyone has ever seen. Elizabeth is running because she believes that she can be a voice that represents all the constituents in her district.
Elizabeth not only supports DFA values, but she embodies them. She is a woman. She is a woman of color. She is Jewish. She has been poor. She has been homeless. She has been on public assistance. Her father is an immigrant. Her grandfather is an immigrant. She understands what it means to be marginalized. She understands what it means to be disenfranchised. These are not just values or buzzwords for her; it is her life experience.
