Candidate Name: Devin Pandy
What office are you running for?
Representative of Georgia’s 9th Congressional District
With which party are you running for office?
Why are you running for office?
I am running for office to fight for the rights of Georgia 9th’s constituents and to bring honor and integrity back to Congress.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
One of the biggest issues in GA-09 is voters’ rights. I plan to work with Stacey Abrams and Fair Fight to ensure all voters who wish to vote can vote, and that all votes are counted.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
The best way to breach the partisan divide is three-fold.
First, we must elect a President who believes in and abides by the Constitution and Rule of Law.
Second, all politicians, regardless of party, must both reaffirm, to themselves and the American people, their oaths to the Constitution and their promise to place the welfare of the American people and the nation about themselves and above their party.
Lastly, journalists and the nation’s news and information outlets must be held to the highest standards of journalistic integrity. It must be made clear, through law and action, that the willful and intentional reporting of inaccurate or false narratives will be met with legal repercussions.
The President, Politicians, Journalists, and News Outlets are all looked upon to inform the American people and have a duty to do so with integrity. The American people have the right to hold them accountable when they do not.
Who is your hero?
My hero is Shirley Chisholm. Representative Chisholm was the first black women elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. She defied the odds, challenged the status quo, and spoke truth to power. Her bravery and courage is worthy of emulation.
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy fishing, motorcycles, dog training, traveling and camping.
What is the most recent book you read?
Measure What Matters by John Doerr
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
I have two sons, Dominique and Devin Jr.
