“I was painted as a Republican in Democrat clothing, and upon examining my political stances, I realized that my detractors were correct." Diane Daniels-Adoma

CONYERS — Lithonia resident Diane Daniels-Adoma, who is co-owner of all H&R Block franchises in Rockdale County, filed a notice of candidacy Monday for the Georgia State Senate District 43 seat. The District 43 seat will be on the Nov. 3 General Election ballot as a special election because former Sen. Ronald Ramsey stepped down in July to take office as a DeKalb County traffic court judge. Ramsey had held the position since 2007.

In 2014 Daniels-Adoma challenged Rep. Dorothea “Dee” Dawkins-Haigler, a Democrat from Lithonia, in the Democratic primary for the state House District 91 seat, which includes portions of Rockdale and DeKalb counties. Dawkins-Haigler won that race in the May primary with Daniels-Adoma collecting approximately one-third of the votes cast. Dawkins-Haigler won last fall’s General Election with no opposition.
