State Sen. Michelle Au, D-Johns Creek, is planning a bid to make the jump from the Georgia Senate to the Georgia House of Representatives after her current seat was redrawn to lean more Republican.

Au, who was the first Asian-American woman elected to the state Senate, announced on Friday that she will run for the State House District 50 seat, which is made up primarily of the city of Johns Creek, next year. Au’s current seat in the Senate is split between Gwinnett and Fulton counties so a move to the House would take her out of the Gwinnett legislative delegation since the new House District 50 does not cross county lines.

Dr. Michelle Au is running for State House District 50 to ensure a healthier, safer future for all Georgians.
