Vice Chair of Community & Voter Outreach, 2017-Current
Passionate about LGBTQ, social justice, civil & human, veterans, and immigration policies, politics and civic engagement came early in life for Terrence. As early as high school, he has served an active role in voter education and engagement.
In 2008—not being able to vote because of his age—Terrence registered two dozen of his eligible classmates to vote for former President Barack Obama. These actions paved a way for him. After graduating from Paulding County High School in Dallas, Georgia, he moved to Atlanta where he volunteered on the campaigns of City of Atlanta Councilwoman Mary Norwood and Councilman Kwanza Hall. He also volunteered with the Human Rights Campaign and In the Life Atlanta—organizations both dedicated to promoting a positive relationship in the LGBTQ community.
In 2012, Terrence relocated to Hiram, where he began working for the Georgia House Minority Treasurer, Kimberly Alexander, a Democrat, from Douglasville overseeing the legislator’s communication efforts—he still serves in this capacity. In 2014, he was elected as the first chapter President of the Young Democrats of Paulding County and shortly thereafter, he was elected as the youngest person to serve as chairperson of any county committee in Georgia where he successfully fought to have a vetted Democrat appointed to the county’s voter registration and election’s board—a major victory for Paulding Democrats.
In 2015, he ran for a seat on the Hiram City Council. Currently, he serves in other leadership roles within other Democratic organizations and owns a small political consulting business dedicated to working with Democratic organizations, candidates, and elected officials in rural Georgia areas.
Terrence also served as the 14th Congressional District Vice Chair, an appointed position, of the Democratic Party of Georgia under the leadership of 14th Congressional District Chair Lukis Newborn.
