Dr. Michelle Au is running for the Georgia Senate District 48 seat as a Democratic candidate. Georgia Senate District 48 covers a wide demographic area including Johns Creek, North Fulton county and northern part of Gwinnett County covering Peachtree Corners, Duluth and Suwanee.

The seat was formerly held by Zahra Karinshak, who recently announced that she would run for Georgia’s 7th Congressional District. At the time of press, Josh Uddin is the only challenger to her candidacy on the Democrat’s Primary on May 19, 2020.

Dr. Au has given much serious thoughts and consideration before deciding to announce her candidacy in November 2019. “The decision to run is not taken lightly. As a physician and a mother of three young children, I have to consider the time and dedication needed to serve the district,” said Dr. Au in her exclusive interview with Georgia Asian Times.
