State Insurance Commissioner Candidate Mary Squires made a stop in Macon County on Jan. 23.


Democratic candidate for State Insurance Commisisoner Mary Squires (D-Norcross) stopped by & spoke to the Flint River Democratic Women's Club, which is apart of the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women Organization headed by Democratic Activist Kristina Sims of Houston County, on saturday at Rosati's Depot in Marshallville.

Squires spoke for over 30 minutes to the group, making her case why she will be the next State Insurance Commissioner. Squires served in the Georgia General Assembly for six years. She was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1998 and the Georgia Senate in 2002. Her primary focus was on health benefits, insurance and juvenile law.

Before that, she served 10 yrs in the Ga National Guard, before being honorably discharged in 1996 with the rank of Captain. Squires addressed issues ranging from Fraud to Health Insurance & was very well received by the newly formed orgainzation led by Yvonne Sutherland. She was very engaging, has a strong grasp of the issues that are handled by the State Insurance Commissioner's office & was very charismatic. Since squires is the only democrat running for Insurance Commissioner, she has been running a general election style campaign, traveling to towns such as Vidalia, Alma, Thomasvile, Valdosta, & others in between. She is a very impressive candidate & after meeting her for the first time, she has my vote. I was sold on her candidacy. Rural Georgia will benefit from having Mary Squires as its next State Insurance Commissioner. She is the candidate for hard working, Bluecollar Georgians.

Others at the forum were Kristina Sims, president of the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women, Yvonne Sutherland, founder of the Flint River Democratic Women's Club & District 2 Director, Fenika Miller, chairwoman of the Houston County Democratic Committee & Charlotte Perkins, a journalist (Retired).
