“The first thing that struck me about Jesse Houle is their undying passion for helping all people. In every decision, they carefully consider which option would best improve the mental, physical, socioeconomic, and spiritual wellbeing of the residents of Clarke County. We need more people in our government who are forward-thinking and proactive about addressing the problems of the future, not just the problems of today. That is why I wholeheartedly endorse Jesse Houle for Clarke County Commission District 6.”

“Jesse Houle has worked passionately for over a decade to build an Athens that works for everyone.  Whether it be through local organizations or campaigns, Jesse’s shown time and again an unwavering commitment to fighting for those here in Athens who are working the hardest and sacrificing the most. A skilled leader, organizer, and bridge-builder, Jesse will unite the people of District 6 so they can work as one to bring living wage jobs, fare free transit, and affordable housing to the people and areas that need it the most.

It is because of this deep dedication to community service, and a shared vision of inclusion and agency, that I am proud to endorse Jesse Houle for District 6 Commissioner.”

“Jesse embodies everything our movement is about — working class people making policies that improve the lives of working class people. Like me, they understand we can’t have a political Revolution without political education. We need them and the generation of activists they’re bringing with them in elected office now more than ever.”
