Why Sherry is Running:
Sherry is running because she is the right person to be at the table to fight for all Atlanta residents.

A four-time breast cancer survivor, Sherry knows how to make lemonade out of lemons. From these serious health challenges, she values life from a different perspective than most. She values the opportunity to live and serve from a more personal and on-purpose perspective.
