ATLANTA—Atlanta City Council District 4 candidate, Jason Dozier, was joined by first responders and veterans during a neighborhood canvass as part of a day of service commemorating September 11th. Dozier and supporters knocked on doors, spoke with voters, and listened to community concerns in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood.
“We’re always glad to help out in any way we can,” said Alex Hofstadter of the Atlanta Professional Firefighters Local 134. “We have confidence in Jason’s commitment to fighting for much-needed transparency, affordable housing access, and better public safety outcomes.”
Dozier was endorsed by both the International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local 623 and the Atlanta Professional Firefighters Local 134 earlier this year.
“I am so proud of the continued support I’ve received from our police officers and firefighters, and it was wonderful to have them with us this weekend,” said Dozier, a Mechanicsville homeowner, community activist, and United States Army combat veteran. “I was honored to have our first responders and members of our veteran community come out and join us. This whole experience has been truly humbling.”
Dozier 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. Dozier 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.
