Committee to elect Patsy PO Box 1587 Suwanee, GA 30024 US

ELECT PATSY AUSTIN-GATSON

  

I have been a practicing attorney in the State of Georgia for thirty years in all State and Federal Courts. I obtained my Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University and J.D. from Emory University School of Law.  I have been a resident of Gwinnett County for twenty-one years. My husband, Travis and I have three adult children and two grandchildren.  

My legal experience has covered a vast area of civil and criminal law, and I have a broad mix of private and public sector experience. I am also a former small business owner in Gwinnett and Atlantic Station. My life experiences and legal experiences have equipped me to be the best qualified District Attorney for our County. 

I will approach the issues that we face with proactive creativity and involve our community in finding lasting solutions to those issues. 

Please vote for me on May 19, 2020, Democratic Primary
