The 2016 legislative session came to a close just over one month ago. We passed a number of initiatives over the duration of our 40 day session. Measures such as education, healthcare, criminal justice reform and public safety remained at the forefront of issues addressed.

Since returning home, I have continued my fast paced schedule, touring the district, addressing constituent concerns and campaigning for reelection! The May 24th primary is right around the corner and early voting has begun. I humbly ask for your support as I would be grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our district in the Georgia House of Representatives. 

If you you are interested in helping me in my campaign efforts, please visit my website for volunteer information or to contribute. In the meantime, if you need anything at all, please feel free to contact me at anytime. Thanks so much and I hope to see all of you very soon!

Protecting Tax Payers from Animal Cruelty Costs
 
Atlanta, Ga. (May 1, 2016) | Georgia Governor Nathan Deal took a big step to help abused animals in the state when he signed the State Taxpayer Animal Relief Act (STAR-Act), SB 356 into law earlier last week. The legislation establishes a legal process so that anyone who has had his or her animals lawfully seized due to cruelty may be required to pay for the animals' care while the cruelty case is prosecuted.  If the defendant refuses to pay, he or she will have to forfeit the animals that can then be placed in a new home. 


 
The 2016 election season is in full swing and I need your help! Early voting has begun for the May 24th primary. Below are a few helpful links provided so that you can fulfill your civic duty.
