ATLANTA – The SPLC Action Fund today endorsed Mayor Ollie Clemons in his re-election campaign for mayor of Austell. Clemons, who has served as mayor for the past decade, has been especially active with the Austell Youth Innovation Center, a city owned historic facility.
“Mayor Clemons has demonstrated that he truly is a community-oriented leader focused on having a positive impact on the everyday lives of citizens,” said Madison Hollon, program manager of political campaigns for the SPLC Action Fund. “This is why we are proud to endorse him in his re-election bid.”
The SPLC Action Fund is focused on lifting up communities of color, particularly in the Deep South, who too often face systemic oppression, poverty and structural racism. To overcome these injustices, the organization is committed to reimagining the political, economic and social systems that sustain them to create a world where all people can thrive.
In pursuit of this bold agenda, the SPLC Action Fund supports candidates who share its commitment to addressing the deep inequities that plague our nation.
