Amy Tavio
Real Estate Broker Amy Tavio (D-Richmond Hill), a centrist democrat has announced her candidacy for the 1st Congressional Seat currently held by Jack Kingston (R-Savannah) who is running for the Senate.

Tavio, a Real Estate Broker from Richmond Hill is a At-Large State Committee member for the Georgia Democratic Party and member o the Bryan County Democratic Party. She is a Real Estate Associate Broker for Keller Williams Realty and before that worked in Real Estate in Boynton Beach & Lake Worth Florida. She attended Georgia Southern University, majoring in political science and sociology and attended Florida State College in Jacksonville.

Here's a few tidits about Tavio:

After working her way through college, Amy began her career in the housing industry. In 2007, after five hurricanes, Amy relocated her family and her real estate business to Coastal Georgia for a quieter life in a community steeped in family tradition and values. She chose to make Richmond Hill her home, for its quality public schools, affordable senior care for her grandmother with Alzheimer’s Disease, and safe independent living options for her mother who had suffered two strokes in 2000

She has advocated for children in state foster care as the Bryan County Coordinator for Atlantic Area CASA, served on the local American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Committee, volunteered with Bryan County Family Connection and the Children’s’ Fund, and diligently worked to create the Bryan County Democratic Party, re-chartered in February 2013. Tavio has earned local respect for her community advocacy. She tirelessly worked behind the scenes in local politics to install new public servants committed to a Richmond Hill where families could live, work, and play. She has proven her ability to work collaboratively with community leaders of differing ideologies to better Bryan County

She is the second Democrat to announce for the 1st Congressional District. 2012 candidate Lesli Messinger (D-Savannah) announced she will run again as well.
