Why You Need To Support My Mom, Amreeta Regmi

Two weeks ago I set off from the City of Peachtree Corners headed back to my station in rural Ghana where I serve as a United States Peace Corps Volunteer. My joyful visit with family and friends at home was complemented by various community based meetings throughout District 95. A few of my memorable moments from my visit are underscored by the Rotary Club meetings, the coffee shop rally and generally, just being around my mother, Amreeta Regmi as she campaigned.

By extending a physical presence among community groups within the District she is able to facilitate change by listening to issues at the grass roots level. She has been a wonderful mother to me the last 25 years and continues to be. With her determination and willingness to listen, she would make a wonderful Representative for our District.
I witnessed tremendous effort that goes into running for office. However, day to day my mother did not buckle.  Awake before anyone in the house, and last to sleep, she would be out all day at meetings, or busily on the phone organizing the next. I am extremely proud of the ongoing effort and courage she has shown to facilitate the change the community wants.

I urge all of you to go out and cast your ballot on Nov. 4th.
