In a press release this afternoon, Cobb County Democratic activist Tania Robinson announced her candidacy for the District 38 Georgia Senate seat.
The district, currently represented by Senator Horacena Tate, who took office in 1999, spans parts of Cobb and Fulton counties.
Robinson, a financial planner, has lived in Cobb for more than 20 years.
She said in the press release, “I believe it is my time to connect the community to the capitol: To legislate around the issues that face our district and find solutions. To bring accountability to the seat and our government. Our district 38 residents want and deserve change and true representation under the Gold Dome.”
According to her announcement, “Robinson is currently a Georgia Democratic Party State Committee Member, the Cobb County District 4 Field Director, and the Vice President of Membership for Cobb Democratic Women. She has represented voters as a delegate at Democratic National Convention in 2012.”
The press release also mentioned Robinson’s involvement with clean air issues, including the emissions of the carcinogen ethylene oxide from the Sterigenics facility near Smyrna.
The Democratic primary will be held Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
