Ring announces listening tour
Lisa Ring

Lisa Ring, who is running for the Democratic nomination in the First Congressional District, has announced her “No One Gets Left Behind” tour that will take her to all 17 counties in the district to meet and talk with voters.

Ring said she has already met with community groups, leaders and individuals in Glynn, Chatham, Lowndes, Bryan, Liberty, Camden and Long counties, and has upcoming events in Ware, Wayne and Bacon counties. Ring will be in Waycross on Monday and hold a meet and greet from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at KD’s Café.

“I am committed to connecting with voters in every part of the district,” She said. “Rural, urban, and suburban, to ensure that no one gets left behind.”

The Bryan County resident is the mother of four, a military spouse and a military mom, and has a background in corrections both as an officer and as an executive.

She announced her candidacy in June. (

Ring is the chair of the Bryan County Democratic Committee, vice chair of the Georgia Democratic Rural Council, and was a Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

“Voters have had enough of partisan bickering and political posturing,” she said. “Our current political leaders are out of touch with the issues that matter to the residents of the district, and that the decisions being made in Congress benefit the extremely wealthy and special interests at the expense of hard-working Americans.”
