Erick Allen For Georgia

Erick is running for Georgia House of Representatives, District 40 on May 22

Erick and his wife Dr. Tameka Allen have been long time residents of Cobb County. During that time Erick has worked as an executive in several private companies, owned and operated a consulting firm, as well as serving as Executive Director of Talent Management for the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.


Erick and Tameka love living in Cobb County because of its vibrant sense of community, quality schools, and the southern values of hospitality and hard work that make it a place where all families can thrive. But as a father, Erick believes that with responsive and principled leadership, Cobb County can achieve so much more for our children. Cobb County deserves active and engaged representation; representation that reflects our values and serves as our collective voice.

(excerpt) 1.5.2018

The Vinings Business Association, which Glenn Christian also leads
as its chairman, meets monthly for lunch at the Georgian Club. Its next
meeting is Feb. 6 at 11:30 a.m., when CBS 46 chief meteorologist
Paul Ossmann will speak. The Vinings association also hosts other
monthly events.

“This is the 11th year for VBA and we want to provide programs
that are valuable to members and guests, to grow and market their
business and acquire new customers by providing educational programs,
well-known speakers and after-hours business events,” Christian said.

He said the big events for the group include a Braves season preview
at the March meeting, the Vinings Business Expo March 20, the
motor-coach trip to a Braves game April 17 and meetings to honor
public safety members, veterans and the Vinings Business of the Year
in October through December. Christian said the association has
180 members and plans to [monitor membership] because they
have limited space for its meetings.
