Meet Mzz. Angela

I began my Democratic life of service in Georgia right here in what is now, the 90th House district of Georgia where the immediate past Representative,

Pamela Stephenson served since 2003.  

I worked alongside her helping her to become elected, time and again. ‘Positively Pam’ made a difference in this HD and the people have agreed until her resignation in 2020. As the HD chair, I worked to bring the concerns of the people to our legislator and helping to find solutions. Pam has supported me at every turn and bestowed upon me, an official *Resolution - Georgia of House Representatives for #HD92 citing the good works I have fostered district-wide.  

 Today as a dedicated constituent, I remain honored and feel I am perfectly positioned to take on the role of your State Representative

 

Angela was born in Washington, DC, and attended the University of the District of Columbia where she majored in Biology.  She went on to pursue a career in medicine, dedicating her works to Women's healthcare.

 

Angela moved to Georgia more than 27 years ago seeking better opportunities for her children. Her strong southern FAMILY roots serve as her grounding board.

 

Angela attended Georgia Tech's School of Business program where she learned the “Business of Businesses” and made the audacious career move to become an award-winning Publicist in her own celebrated Public Relations firm.

Following her passion as a recipe developer in the foodie art's, Angela opened a culinary arts school; Angie Mamma's Kitchen, situated in Atlanta, Georgia. 

 

Angela has been a small business owner for the past 20+ years and is customer, community service, and detailed oriented.

 

"As a mother, entrepreneur, political and social advocate, Angela possesses those qualities of persuasiveness, community consciousness, flexibility, decision making, inclusiveness, tenacity, and an ability to initiate change, all required to successfully assume the task of State Representative." 

 

Angela is a former Georgia foster parent where children who have come from all over the State affectionately call her "Mzz. ANGELA” which she touts with glee and pride. Her natural love & concern for children's welfare gave way to the formation of the "Betwixt N Between" Foundation, of which she is Executive Director. The foundation provides donations to children who are in-between state foster home care and awaiting adoption.

 

In 2019, Angela formed the 'Colour Purple Foundation' which helps to subsidize the last wishes of terminally ill cancer patients after the passing of her baby sister who succumbed to Gallbladder Cancer leaving her 3 minor children in her care.

 

  • Angela was appointed to serve on the Executive Board of Directors for the YMCA Academy of South DeKalb where she upheld the mission and vision of the YMCA, support program operations, and ensure the financial health and effective community relations of the two academies.

 

  • As educational chair for the nationally acclaimed American Business Women's Association, Angela's main objective was to award scholarships to young college-bound women by promoting educational values.

 

  • Angela is passionate about organizations that offer LIFE services selflessly to the community and advocates when and where she can for such local non-profits as Hosea Feed The Hungary & Homeless and Be Someone and serves as an Ambassador for the international organization of UNICEF which, puts "children first."

 

A Democratic life:

 

"I have always been a vocal advocate for the bare-bone principles of Democracy.

 I pride myself on the ability to abandon my own will for the greater good

regardless of party affiliation"

 

  • Angela has served as the chair for Senate district 43 of the advisory committee while under the leadership of the honorable Steen Miles. In this, Angela was involved directly with the community and their concerns and assisted the senator in community-involved programs throughout the senate district. 

 

  • Angela is a Chairmans' award-winning member of the Democratic Party and has worked in local, statewide and national campaigns.

 

  • Angela served as the chair for the 92nd (now the 90th) district of Georgia from DeKalb County

  • Angela served as the Communications chair for her county's Democratic party.

 

Angela gained an enormous wealth of campaign experience in her own constitutional statewide race for Georgia's Secretary of State. Angela says it was an honor to engage in the election and to meet the warm embrace of people from all backgrounds and faiths with whom she continues the friendships.

 

Standing on the shoulders of so many honorable men and women who serve and have served the great state of Georgia, Angela considers it an honor to work beside the legislative body for the office which she now seeks.

 

 Angela’s focus as State Representative from the 90th district is to continue "Fostering Excellence" to its constituents.

 

"Georgia's on her mind"
