Sam is the first openly gay man and first Asian American Democrat elected to the Georgia State Legislature
Representative Sam Park is the first openly gay man and first Asian American Democrat elected to the Georgia State Legislature. Sam’s commitment to serving others and passion for good public policy have been driving forces in his professional and political career. As a first-year legislator, Sam co-sponsored comprehensive civil rights legislation, fought to stop anti-immigrant proposals, and co-sponsored legislation to expand Medicaid in Georgia. Sam also served as a Deputy Assistant Whip in the Georgia House Democratic Caucus. In 2016, Sam unseated a three-term Republican chairwoman by building a strong grassroots campaign as a first time candidate. Facing his first reelection, Sam is a top target for the Georgia Republican Party in 2018. With your support, we can help Sam win next November and continue the progress made in Georgia.
