I'm pleased for the opportunity to blog on Patch. As a business attorney and business owner, I blog often on a variety of business and legal issues for my law firm so this is like a second home to me!
I was born and raised in Georgia, specifically DeKalb Co. My family has deep roots in Dekalb and Rockdale counties.
I have committed my life to service starting at the age of 18 when I interned for Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. In college, I worked with Young Democrats of Georgia and on Capitol Hill in D.C. for Congresswoman Denise Majette. I also founded the Young Democrats Chapter at Oglethorpe University, was a student advisor to the Kerry for President Campaign and served two (2) years on the State Capitol as a committee intern for the late Rep. George Maddox, my mentor and friend.
Today I had two (2) visitors from Rockdale county where I currently serve: Leadership Rockdale and the Rockdale NAACP. (pictures below). I LOVE having constituents visit the State Capitol almost as much as I love coming to the district and giving updates. You can contact my staff at www.kendrickforgeorgia.com and come on down!
I am also introducing THREE (3) really important pieces of legislation. View my youtube video below for more details.
