The 2018 election is a huge opportunity for Georgia Democrats. Democrats are gaining seats in the state legislature, but the Fulton Democrats still need your help to make an impact next November.

Save the date for our first annual Blue Heart Affair, a fundraising reception that will help fund democratic party efforts to get out the vote in 2018.

Tickets on sale now.

All funds solicited in connection with this event are by the Fulton County Democratic Party and not by Vice Chair Blake.

When describing the path his life has taken, New York Assemblyman Michael Blake refers to the words of his mother who remarked that the family had gone “from no house to the White House.” 

Born to Jamaican immigrants, Blake first entered politics as an intern to Illinois senator Jeff Schoenberg. In 2006, he began his political career by participating in the “Yes We Can” political training program.

He then managed three winning state legislative races in Michigan, became President Obama’s 2008 Iowa Caucus Constituency vote director, and served in eight additional states, including Michigan, where his team won all seven races as part of their Coordinated campaign. 

Later, Blake served as White House Associate Director of Public Engagement and Deputy Associate Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. In, 2012 Blake was National Deputy Operation Vote Director for President Obama.
