Friends for Doreen Carter

In November of 2015, Doreen Carter was elected to serve as State Representative of House District 92, which includes Rockdale County and the southern-most part of DeKalb County, including a portion of the new City of Stonecrest. She is a member of the following standing committees: Code Revision, Education, Small Business Development and Special Rules. Additionally, Carter was elected by her peers to serve as treasurer of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus.

Representative Carter has embraced her role in the Georgia General Assembly, and executed several initiatives as a new legislator. Specifically, she introduced legislation to address blight, which affects neighborhoods throughout Georgia. In addition, Carter co-sponsored a bill to train service providers on how to detect and assist victims of domestic violence. She also established an annual event designed to educate, inform and enhance awareness of women’s heart disease, which is held during the month of February in conjunction with the national “Go Red For Women” campaign. Carter’s hard work and dedication has been recognized by her colleagues, as she is the recipient of the 2016 Georgia Legislative Black Caucus Freshman Legislator of the Year Award.
