Georgia State House, District 179
Julie Jordan is a daughter, mother, and wife. Last summer she retired from the Glynn County Public Schools after nearly 30 years in public education. Julie served as a middle school counselor and most recently as registrar/assistant principal at Glynn Academy, one of the two local high schools in Glynn County. Julie is well respected by teachers, parents, students, and community members.
She has lived in her district for twenty years and is an active member of her community. Julie serves on the Selden Park Advisory Committee and is a member of Women’s Voices of Glynn County. She is also the Chairwoman of the Glynn County Democratic Party. Julie is married to Lisa Jordan and lives on St. Simons Island with their adopted dog, Jasper. Her son is a student at Oxford College at Emory University in Atlanta and can often be found volunteering for the campaign.
Julie is running to make all voices heard and to unite her community. Julie’s platform is focused on expanding Medicaid, increasing the minimum wage, and protecting the Georgia coast. She believes that healthcare is a right and knows that everyone deserves to earn a living wage. She understands climate change is real and that it disproportionately impacts communities of color. Julie made massive strides in her 2018 race with over 42% of the vote and she can finish the job in 2020. House District 179 has been red and male as far back as anyone can remember. In the 3 previous elections before her 2018 run, the Republicans ran unopposed and were simply handed the seat.
