Sam Park

Rep. Sam Park
State Representative
Georgia General Assembly

Sam Park is the newly elected Georgia State Representative from House District 101, which is located in Gwinnett, the most diverse county in the Southeast. By unseating a three-term incumbent during the 2016 General Election, Sam became the first openly gay man, and first Asian Democrat elected to the Georgia General Assembly. As a native Georgian, Sam ran on ensuring all Georgians have access to healthcare, and that all are treated with equal dignity and respect. As a first year legislator, Sam had the honor to serve as a deputy whip in the Georgia House Democratic Caucus, and had the privilege of co-sponsoring comprehensive statewide civil rights legislation.
