REPRESENTING THE NEEDS OF ALL NORTH GEORGIANS
Dee has the passion and the skillS to be your next State Senator for northeast Georgia’s District 50.
Dee Daley lives in the town of Clayton, in the Northeast Georgia mountains of Rabun County. She moved to Georgia over 40 years ago to escape the brutal northern winters of Ohio. Dee quickly embraced her new community and became an advocate for issues important to the region.
Dee's parents met in St. Louis during WWII and decided to raise their family in Ohio. Her father worked for the railroad and her mom managed the household and cared for Dee and her two older brothers. Dee was raised in a family with a strong work ethic that values integrity, genuineness, and gratitude. She knows the importance of family, but she is also extremely civic minded and devoted to serving her neighbors.
Dee is a proud graduate of Georgia State University with a Master's degree in Employee Assistance Programming. Upon entering the corporate world, Dee progressed to be an accomplished Senior Director in the healthcare, finance, and technology industries. After a four-decade corporate career, Dee retired from General Electric Company and today is a consultant to global corporations.

She has the unique ability to drive change on initiatives with her strong project and change management experience, as well as her great sense of humor and excellent people skills. I hightly recommend Dee to serve in government."
Vic Ide, Home Depot, HR Leader
"If you have an operation that isn’t performing or needs to exceed expectations, then the person you need is Dee Daley. I worked for Dee for five years at the GE Healthcare North American Service Call Center. As a result of Dee’s vision, extraordinary leadership, and passion for success, she led this high profile GE organization to become a “best in class” customer support center.
Dee is a true leader in the sense that she develops people and builds coalitions. I was a member of Dee's leadership staff, and the lessons I learned in my time with Dee are still serving me well to this day. All Georgians would be very fortunate to have Dee as a legislator."
