Biography

Regina Lewis-Ward, a business consultant and former City of Stockbridge Council Member understands people are hurting and has been an advocate who listens. She knows the heartbeat of the community and believes when our founders imagined a new nation, they wanted one where people could have a voice in government. “I want to help families that are hurting, unify our communities, and focus on issues that really matter to Georgia families, like improving education and attracting the best industries to spur economic growth.”

Regina has more than thirty years of public and private sector leadership in areas of policy integration and management; data management and contract compliance. She managed a staff of fifty-three and a weekly budget of more than one million dollars. She was responsible for local, state, and federal law compliance, including adherence to collective bargaining agreements and memorandum of understandings. In 2013, Henry County Chamber of Commerce and Henry County Board of Education presented her with a distinguished Spotlight Award for outstanding contributions.

As a Stockbridge City Councilwoman, Lewis-Ward created the Stockbridge Citizens Academy, a seven-week community program to bring together local citizens, businesses and government for transparency in how the city operates. She also led the initiative to use Community Development Block Grant funds to upgrade public parks with inclusive special needs playground equipment. She has a passion for education, leads Henry County’s focus on grade level reading proficiency, and also collaborates with stakeholders through One Henry Economic Alliance to position the county for economic advancement.

Her community engagement includes working with the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading, League of Women Voters of GA, Atlanta Regional Commission, One Henry Economic Alliance , NAACP, National Council Negro Women, American Business Women’s Association, Metro South Association of Realtors, Feed My People, Inc. and the City of Stockbridge – Public Safety Committee. As vice chairperson of the Metro South Association of Realtors, Cultural Diversity and Education Committee, Lewis-Ward made history by obtaining the first grant for Diversity Leadership from the National Association of Realtors. The grant was secured to unlock the real estate market potential by finding new realtor skills to service multicultural home buyers.

She holds a B.B.A. from Bernard M. Baruch College in computer systems and an M.A. with a concentration in political science from Clayton State University. Her continuing education credits include executive leadership, organizational change management, administration of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and real estate appraisals. She previously held real property sales and Georgia life producer licensures. Her academic research includes Russian data laws, anti-poverty programs and a Thesis on U.S. Government and Lags in Protecting Personally Identifiable Information.

Priorities

Education

Regina understands the value of a quality education that is why she works hard to fight for our young children to have a good education. Public schools are the backbone of a good workforce, and proper funding is required in order to ensure its vitality. We must ensure all children receive the proper education in order to live a successful life.

Working Families

Working families are what keep Georgia’s economy alive, and they deserve the right to a livable wage. Protection of the working class is a top priority to ensure we keep Georgia as the #1 state for business. Regina understands this need, as she and many Georgians are products of working families.

Health Care

Access to quality and affordable Healthcare is a right that should be available to any and all persons regardless of race, sex, or income status. That is why, Medicaid Expansion is a must within the state of georgia. Without the expansion of Medicaid, many working Georgians have fallen through the coverage gap not having the ability to afford access to care. Regina will be an advocate for your access to healthcare as your state representative.
