Hi, I'm Michael

Hi, I'm Michael, the oldest son of Michael and Marion Carson born and raised in Washington, D.C. We moved to Los Angeles, California and from there I returned to D.C. and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force.  I began my legal career while serving the country, then moved on to work in the private and non-profit sectors as a legal professional that took me from Los Angeles, Chicago, and finally, Atlanta.  I have been married to my wife Debra for more than 27 years and we are the proud parents of two adult sons.

My entire life has been devoted to serving others, whether it was by providing food to our underserved population, mentoring youth and adults, developing programs for the formerly incarcerated, grassroots organizing, registering citizens to vote, volunteering with gubernatorial and presidential campaigns, and/or writing testimony for the U.S. Congress for the betterment of nonprofits and NGOs.

It is time for new representation for District 38 in the Georgia Senate.  The citizens of this vast District deserve a Senator who is accessible, collaborative, hardworking, has his nose to the ground and is ready to tackle the big challenges.  Please visit our Platform page to read about some of our top priorities.


I am the right candidate, at the right time for District 38!  However, I cannot run this race without your help.  Your participation and involvement is critical to our success. Please consider supporting my campaign with your vote, time, and donation.  No amount of assistance and/or donation is too small.  All are welcomed to join us on this journey.  District 38 is our respective neighborhood, city, and county and together, we can make it the best District in the State of Georgia!

Thank you in advance for this opportunity to serve!
