  January 5, 2016

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season! I am honored to serve the 113th House district and to represent you as your legislator.

The Georgia Assembly will convene on Monday, January 11, 2016 and I wanted to share with you some of the issues we will be dealing with in the upcoming legislative session.  

I also wanted to give you an update on some positive things that happened last year that will lead to even greater things in 2016.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the session with your thoughts on pending issues, or whenever I can be of service.  

For updates throughout the year, please be sure visit my Facebook page on a regular basis and follow me on  Twitter.  
Communication is a two-way street, so please feel free to contact me with your views on the issues facing our state, or whenever I can be of service. I read every email.

Please send your emails from an individual account as I cannot reply to those sent from a list serve.

I can also be reached at 678.207.6043.

Good News Georgia
Economic conditions in Georgia have shown strong growth through the past two fiscal years. Just five months in to this fiscal year our revenue growth is 9.1% overall.

Georgia continues to retain a AAA bond rating.

Georgia created 92,900 jobs in the last 12 months and 42,600 jobs in the last 3 months. The strongest growth since 1994. 

Georgia is now 3rd in the U.S. in film and TV production.
Our Ports completed a 5th straight Year of record international trade with a 17% increase in FY 2015 with container traffic up 11% and total cargo up 7.8%.  The Brunswick Port continues rapid growth in auto shipping and receiving, increasing 7.8% this past Fiscal Year.

Passing a balanced budget is the constitutional requirement of the Georgia Legislature. The state must address a growing population, rising healthcare costs, education, transportation, and other pressing needs with a limited amount of funds.

I will continue to work tirelessly to represent you and make our entire state a better place to live, work, and raise families.

I hope you will look forward to my weekly newsletters updating you on the progress of the 2016 Georgia General Assembly.

I will certainly look forward to hearing from you!
