Why I’m Running
GEORGIA DESERVES BETTERWhen I saw how much Georgians in need struggled due to the slow response from the Georgia Department of Labor, I decided that a change was needed. The COVID-19 Pandemic exposed that the Georgia Department of Labor’s technology is antiquated, and the Department is unable to support Georgia Workers in need who lost their jobs due to no fault of their own. You deserve a Labor Commissioner who puts the needs of Georgia Workers first.
PrioritiesAs your next Labor Commissioner, my main focus will always be on you – Georgia Workers.

HOUSE BILL 112
Representative William Boddie passed 22 bills in five years as a Democrat in the Georgia General Assembly. With those pieces of legislation, Representative Boddie has either been the lead sponsor or a lead co-sponsor on bills ranging from repealing the Citizens Arrest Statute in Georgia; to passing a Municipal Option Sales Tax (MOST) that would allow the cities of East Point, College Park, and Hapeville to call for a referendum to implement a 1-cent sales tax to improve the wastewater and sewer infrastructure in those cities. Representative Boddie has a proven track record for advocating for legislation and policy initiatives that will not only benefit his constituents of House District 62 but legislation and policy initiatives that will ultimately benefit all Georgians.
HOUSE BILLS PASSED
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.
