Georgia has been named the number one state in which to do business for seven years, which is a testament to the strong partnership between the legislature and the business community. I have served the people of District 128 in the Georgia General Assembly for twelve years. I have had the opportunity to work on some important legislation that has benefited the State of Georgia as well as the district. In 2014, I was named A Champion of Georgia’s Cities by Georgia Municipal Association. In 2017 I was selected by Speaker of the House David Ralston to serve on the House Rural Development Council.
