Kyle Rinaudo is a proud Georgian, millennial, musician, teacher, and organizer whose proudest accomplishment may be graduating from the same high school as his mother. A previous president of the Acworth Young Aldermen, public school teacher, law firm administrator, and candidate for State House of Representatives, Kyle brings a wealth of experience in local government to his campaign to represent District 35 in Georgia's General Assembly.
Kyle attended North Cobb High School as a student in the International Studies Magnet Program. While at North Cobb, Kyle competed in high school debate, hosted the school's weekly TV show, and served as Drum Major for the North Cobb Marching Band. He participated in Acworth's municipal politics as a member of the Acworth Board of Young Aldermen, which advocates community service and civic participation for Georgia's young voters. After one year on the Board, Kyle was elected as its President, and he subsequently led the city's efforts to promote safe driving habits among young drivers and support community service projects for North Cobb students.
Kyle then became a student at Georgetown University, majoring in international politics. He studied Spanish, served as a residence hall adviser, organized weekly mass at the university's student chapel, and spent a semester working in the U.S. House of Representatives. Continuing his lifelong passion for music, Kyle also performed as principal timpanist for Georgetown's symphony orchestra and became the the group's administrative manager in his senior year. One of Kyle's proudest moments at Georgetown was joining his mother to march in the Women's March on Washington in January 2017, where he was inspired by all the thousands of people mobilizing to make a change.
After graduating from Georgetown, Kyle returned to Acworth where he began working in a local law firm and teaching music part time with public school percussion students. In 2018, he decided to run for office with the mission of inspiring more young people to be engaged in the political process. His passion for issue-based advocacy—Voting rights, protecting the environment, and promoting equal rights for all Georgians—drove his decision to run again in 2020 and finish the job.
In this election, it's time to bring Georgia government into the 21st Century. That's why Kyle Rinaudo is running to be your voice in the General Assembly—and he's looking forward to discussing your ideas for the future in the weeks and months to come.
Kyle believes that all of us have a responsibility to do all the good we can given the station we have. He is ready to fight for the solutions and ideas that will continue to grow our community and make Acworth the best place in Georgia to live, work, and do business. After all, given his experience across work, school, and life, that's what he's worked to do his whole life.
