Dear Fellow Citizens,
It has been my distinct honor to represent the people of Senate District 40 and I plan to seek re-election.
presently serve on the Education (Chairman); Retirement
(Vice-Chairman); Economic Development; Health and Human Services;
Government Oversight; and MARTOC committees.
accomplishments the last two years include co-chairing the Education
Finance Commission. This past year we passed five pieces of legislation
to improve how we fund K-12 public education.
authored the legislation to repay the federal government the money we
borrowed to pay state unemployment benefits and it will also restore
solvency to the unemployment trust fund. In fact, the Georgia Chamber of
Commerce made me its May/June Business Champion for my work in this
I drew the original map that expanded the 6th Congressional District (Congressman Tom Price) further into DeKalb County.
thank you for the opportunity to serve your interests. Please feel free
to contact me with your comments and/or questions.
