Georgia State Representative El-Mahdi Holly was elected into public office in 2018, by building a broad coalition of local support to earn his seat by a solid majority vote - making history as both the 1st person of color and the 1st Democrat to win his historically Republican semi-rural district.

Known locally as "EL" Representative Holly has proudly called Henry County home since 2003. Raised in Georgia by his father, a Christian minister and businessman, and his mother, a local college professor, Holly was taught the importance of active voluntarism in serving the community and solving problems at a very early age.

After being awarded the National Youth Service Award from President Bill Clinton for his efforts mentoring young teens, Holly pursued and received a Bachelor of Arts from Morehouse College. He went on to earn a Masters of Public Administration from University of West Georgia.

A proud member of Tabernacle of Praise Church in McDonough, Holly has maintained an active daily schedule, attending to the needs of his local constituents, including city & county officials, while also engaging members of Georgia's business community to help provide better opportunities.
