Founding Board Member, Executive Committee Member

Charlie Bailey is an 8th generation Georgian from Harris County, Georgia, who has spent his career fighting for those that have been wronged by others.

Despite running against an incumbent appointed by the Governor and supported by the powerful interests at the state Capitol, he received a higher percentage of the vote than any other down ballot statewide Democratic candidate by promising to fight against corrupt politicians, consumer fraud, opioid producers, predatory debt collectors, and violent organized crime. Before his campaign for Attorney General, Charlie served as a Senior Assistant District Attorney in Fulton County, and prior to that, Charlie worked as an attorney in the law firm founded and managed by former Governor Roy Barnes. He worked with Governor Barnes representing Georgians who were hurt by the wrongdoing of others, including victims of medical malpractice, school teachers who were wrongfully denied their retirement benefits, and small businesses who were taken advantage of by big corporations.
