Despite the session ending on March 24th, my schedule remains hectic as ever! I have been busy touring the district and working on many projects for the betterment of our great state.
Homeless Crisis Hearings
One project that I am looking forward to is my upcoming state t
our in which I
will be holding hearings to address the crisis of homelessness affecting rural and urban communities across Georgia. As Chairman of the House Committee on State Planning and Community Affairs I work directly with the Department of Community Affairs that manages the state's homelessness and housing services. Sadly, 30% of homeless people in Georgia are families with children. Nearly one in five homeless persons in this state is a child under the age of 18.
The purpose of the hearings will be to study the issue of homelessness and affordable housing and identify best practices and opportunities to access additional resources that will effectively address this issue. Dates and cities have not been set to date, however, I will keep you posted once we have more information.
May 24th Primary
As you may know, the May 24th primary is less than a week a way! Please get out and vote! I would be grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our district in the Georgia House of Representatives, but I need your help.
I am honored to have received a number of endorsements over the last few weeks. The Georgia Chapter of National Federation of Independent Businesses has shown their support in recognition of my work in the General Assembly aimed at protecting small business owners.
I was also thrilled to receive an endorsement from the National Rifle Association as a result of my "A" rating. As an advocate of your 2nd amendment right to bear and keep arms, I am grateful for their recognition of my work on the state level.
If you need anything at all, please don't hesitate to contact me at anytime. Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement. I hope to see all of you very soon!
