We have extremely high number of veterans that choose to call Georgia home and our committee responsibility is to ensure we address the needs of those veterans and their families. My fellow committee members and I will not take this responsibility lightly. I look forward to our supporting partnership with Veterans Affairs, Veterans Services, the Georgia National Guard, the Georgia Department of Homeland Security and those organizations who advocate daily for our veterans. I want to thank Lt. Governor Burt Jones and the Committee on Assignments for allowing me to actively support those who were my military brothers and sisters. I am excited about the prospect of working with my Senate colleagues in this capacity and I look forward to what is to come.”
