Nowak Announces Run For U.S. Congress Against Jim Marshall

 

 

 

 

By Amanda Smith

 

 

Musician and Bibb County educator Robert Nowak has announced his intention to run in the Democratic Primary for U.S. Congress in Georgia’s 8th Congressional District against Congressman Jim Marshall.

 

Robert grew up in Vermont, but his fondest childhood memories are of the times spent with his grandparents in Fort Valley, Georgia.  He attended Columbia University where he studied math and physics, then followed his love of music by attending the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.  Two years later, he received his Masters in Music from the Cleveland Institute.

 

Robert has traveled and lived all over the world, gaining experience in public policy, diplomacy, and education.  For more than a year, he taught math, computer, and technical skills to Northern Ireland students in an area accustomed to civil war.  He and the students survived bomb scares, evacuations, and roadblocks.  Through these experiences, Robert gained firsthand knowledge and learned both personal and governmental solutions to fighting terrorism.

 

After returning to the United States, Robert obtained his teaching certificate from Wesleyan College and has served as an educator in the Houston County School System for 1 year, then in Bibb County Schools for five years.  He received his Teacher of the Year Award during his first year at Burdell-Hunt Elementary School in Macon, Georgia.

 

Robert Nowak supports a growing vision for Georgia and is quick to point out that his opponent in the 8th District race, Congressman Jim Marshall, has voted against many things that are in the best interests of Georgia’s families.  For example, Jim Marshall….

 

·        Did not vote for the Head Start Acts of 2003 or 2007

·        Voted NO to Georgia’s PeachCare Program and children’s healthcare

·        Voted NO to providing prescription drug coverage through the Medicare Program rather than the private sector

·        Voted NO to the Clean Energy Act of 2007

·        Voted NO to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act

·        Voted NO to increase funding for homeless assistance programs

·        Voted YES to funding the SOA (School of the Americas), which has a history of training Latin American terrorists

 

“The voters of the 8th Congressional District deserve a representative who will fight for nourishing our children with a strong education and health care, protecting our fragile environment, safeguarding human and civil rights, and adding a voice of moderation to the tense arena of international affairs,” says Robert Nowak.
