Atlanta, Georgia—With a haul of $13,471, Mechanicsville activist, Atlanta native, and United States Army combat veteran Jason Dozier was the top raiser in the Atlanta City Council District 4 race. To date, Dozier has raised $65,347, which is more than all eleven of his opponents combined. This includes 24-year incumbent Cleta Winslow, who reported raising no funds during this disclosure period and whom Dozier maintains a five-to-one fundraising advantage. Dozier continues to be the top fundraising candidate ever to challenge Councilmember Winslow in District 4.
“This experience has been extremely humbling,” said Dozier. “Our campaign continues to focus on our core platform of affordable housing, safer neighborhoods, and government transparency, and I believe that my message of community and accountability has resonated with constituents.”
Jason has served as a reconnaissance officer in the United States Army for six years, where he earned the Bronze Star Medal and the Army Commendation Medal resulting from his service in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Jason is a proud combat veteran who remains active in several veterans groups including the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Veterans for American Ideals. Jason also works as a director at Hire Heroes USA, a non-profit empowering veterans and military spouses to find employment after transitioning from their time in service. Jason remains active in the Mechanicsville community where he’s served as Vice President of the Mechanicsville Civic Association and on the Steering Committee for the Turner Field Community Benefits Coalition.
