Fludd Elected as House Democratic Caucus Chairman Over Thomas

Today, Moderate Democrat Virgil Fludd (D-Fayetteville) was elected as Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus over State Rep. Brian Thomas (D-Lilburn). Fludd said after the election " I think we can do better, I think we've done things well, but I think we can do better". If you don't remember, Fludd ran for Minority Leader for the House Democratic Caucus, which eventually was won by Rep Stacey Abrams.

Now back to Fludd's election.The Caucus Chairman is in charge of RECRUITING & FUNDRAISING. I hope Fludd would commit to recruiting candidates for Rural Legislative Seats, starting on 2014.  That's what I hope, because recruiting in the more populated Urban/Suburban areas are not the problem, it's in the isolated, rural areas of the state. Fludd needs to build contacts & connections in many areas as possible, that's the key!

Fludd is serving a fourth term in the 66th House District. The district includes parts of Fayette and Fulton Counties in south metro Atlanta. He serves on the Ways and Means, Regulated Industries, Small Business, and Banking Committees. He is also Chair of the Economic Development Policy Committee and Co-Chair of the Working Families Legislative Caucus.

His legislative successes include battles to stop payday lending, tax reform, district voting and financial education in the state of Georgia. He has tons of private sector experience with over 20 years of sales, marketing, management and consulting experience. He is currently the President and CEO of the Carvir Group, an executive recruiting and management consulting firm. The company provides corporate recruiting services to companies across the country and has worked for Bank of America as a Vice President and Sales Manager.
