Economy


My dedication to building a booming economy goes beyond the 3rd district as it is my hope that Georgia can thrive in all 159 counties—for every Georgian, not just those at the top. Georgia’s reputation has been that it’s one of the country’s best places to do business. But we need to work on making it one the best places in the country to be employed, live and retire as well. Investing in small businesses and the assets that all businesses need, like an educated workforce and strong infrastructure in district 3 is the best way to deliver high-quality employment. Promoting policies that support workers, eliminate obstacles to opportunity and foster success for every family is the way to uplift Georgians.

When President Obama took office in 2009, he inherited an economy in freefall, with huge deficits, skyrocketing healthcare costs, dwindling employment, and banking and housing markets on the brink of collapse. Working with the President, Democrats stabilized the financial system, helped to prevent a second Great Depression, and created millions of new jobs. Now, our country’s current situation under COVID 19 is unprecedented economic status.

We must work hard to protect the progress and fight to extend it to every Georgian so that we are not left behind. When Republicans cut taxes for the wealthy but not the middle class, or threaten our recovery with dangerous financial policies, Democrats will fight back. Democrats should move to cut taxes for working families, provided help for small businesses and homeowners, and strengthen consumer protections. Despite COVID 19’s obstruction to almost every industry in our economy, we can provide relief for hardworking Americans who lost their jobs through no fault of their own.

Democrats want to guarantee that all Georgians have the opportunity to succeed and that all working families can enjoy economic security. We won’t be satisfied until every American who wants to work can find a job. We will meet the challenges of this modern century by stimulating job creation, rebuilding our infrastructure, investing in clean-energy technologies and small businesses.

It is a privilege to serve in elected office, and I will serve with the highest ethical standards. Together, we can make a better Georgia.

Vote for me! I will fight for you.
