Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
AFGE member Ceretta Smith has won her City Council campaign in Grovetown, Georgia, a city in Columbia County.
In her work as a union activist for AFGE, Smith’s leadership has shone in several roles: women’s and fair practices coordinator, chief steward, legislative political coordinator, local president and Georgia state council president.
“My background drives my aspirations to make sure that everyone has a voice in shaping local government,” Smith says on her campaign website. “I believe we need more people in local government that will put people first: leaders that will listen and lead from a place of understanding and compassion and consider every voice in our community.”
