Signature Issues

Preserving Democracy and Voting Rights – Fore’s primary issue is the preservation of our fragile democracy and fighting back against Republican attempts to overturn elections and restrict the right to vote. She supports same day voter registration, expanded early voting and making election day a national holiday.

Living Wages and Top Marginal Tax Reform – Fore has some creative ideas for raising the minimum wage and the top marginal tax rate. She wants to raise the minimum wage to a living wage, but would allow a lower minimum wage for 16 and 17 year-olds who wish to enter the workforce and gain valuable experience. Likewise, she says she would vote to raise the top marginal tax rate significantly, but would allow a lower rate for businesses who create living wage jobs in the US instead of building factories overseas.

Experience

Fore is a realtor, working musician and Christian worship leader in Athens. She is also an advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. She ran in the Democratic primary unsuccessfully for the same seat in the US House in 2022.
