DEMOCRAT. PROGRESSIVE. FIGHTER.
Raised in rural South Georgia by a single mom who worked as a hairdresser, Jen Jordan learned first-hand the value of hard work and the importance of creating an economy that works for everyone.
It was Jen’s public-school teachers who encouraged her to go to college, and by studying hard and working minimum wage jobs, Jen found a way to complete her education. From kindergarten to graduating magna cum laude from the University of Georgia School of law, Jen is a product of Georgia’s public education system. And because of her passion for fairness, Jen became a lawyer who stands up for those the system has failed.
In 2015, Jen brought suit against the Secretary of State after she uncovered an unprecedented data breach where the Secretary of State’s office unlawfully distributed the personal information of every voter in the state, a breach that affected over 6 million Georgians. Only after Jen filed suit did the Secretary of State give the required legal notice to the victims of the breach and offer to provide credit repair insurance.
And when Karen Handel was Secretary of State, Jen fought efforts by that office to suppress the rights of Georgia voters. A resident of the Sixth District for more than 15 years, where she lives with her husband Lawton and two children, Jen will stand up to Donald Trump in the Georgia Senate and fight for the Democratic values we share.
