HEALTHCARE

We need to fully expand medicaid to cover all Georgians who fall within the coverage gap.

 

We need to also increase funding to the Department of Behavioral Health to provide more services to those in a mental health crisis by expanding the number of beds we have at Georgia Regional.

Infrastructure

Evaluating our canals and roads to ensure flooding in Georgia House District 163 are addressed, and we bring our city and county partners together to attack this issue head-on. 

EDUCATION

Creating an opportunity weight in the QBE formula for failing schools in impoverished areas to provide wrap around services to students who need the most help.

Ensure a quality education for all Georgia’s students. Education is the key to Georgia’s continued economic growth. Good schools and an educated workforce will bring new jobs to our state, ensuring a healthy economy.
