Cobb County Commissioner, DIstrict 3
Caroline Holko is a wife, mother, and activist in East Cobb County, Georgia. She spent her earlier years working as an organizer under the SEIU banner with city employees and housing project maintenance workers. She later transitioned to non profit management, where she spent several years writing and managing grants for arts in education.
Caroline is running for County Commissioner after watching her county become both overdeveloped and underfunded. She was motivated to run after her final straw was when Commissioner started suggesting closing libraries and cutting services just to avoid a tax increase that amounts to the cost of Netflix subscription for the average homeowner. Caroline is believes Cobb County needs to invest in fully funded services, not corporate tax abatement. Change begins at home, and Caroline running in her own backyard.
Caroline’s campaign has three priorities: Diversity, Transit, and Services. Despite several advisory councils, Cobb County does not have anything relating to diversity and inclusion. Transit and services are crucial to a healthy community. Caroline plans to be available to her constituents and to operate ethically and with transparency. And while she has a specific district to represent, She will not take actions that are harmful to other districts.
