Covington, GA – On Tuesday, May 28, 2019, U.S. Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) hosted Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp for a tour of Stanton Springs, a first-of-its-kind, 1,600-plus acre, industrial park located within Newton, Morgan and Walton counties. Joined by members of the Georgia General Assembly and the Joint Development Authority for Stanton Springs, Hice highlighted the area’s job growth, business investment, and workforce development.
“By forging a partnership and creating a series of high-quality job hubs, Stanton Springs is the gold standard for collaboration, regionalism, and economic opportunity,” said Congressman Hice. “As our community continues to grow and thrive, I was thrilled to host Governor Kemp, Georgia’s First Lady, and other key stakeholders to showcase the innovation happening here at home. With the focus of attracting greater investment in our state, Stanton Springs is a burgeoning leader in Georgia.”
“The Peach State is a hub for job growth and innovation, and Stanton Springs is living proof that our business climate is pushing boundaries and expanding opportunities in every sector of the economy,” said Governor Kemp. “I was honored to join Congressman Hice and folks on the ground to see the incredible progress being made to keep Georgia the number one state in which to do business. Clearly, Stanton Springs is on the forefront of industrial innovation, and I’m proud to witness the great work they’re doing here.”
“Stanton Springs is a premier industrial park of Georgia, and it was an honor to host the Governor and First Lady with Congressman Hice,” said Serra Hall, Senior Project Manager for Covington/Newton County Office of Economic Development. “We are fortunate to have partners in Congressman Hice and our new administration who believe in job creation and economic success. Stanton Springs is jointly owned by four counties, Jasper, Morgan, Newton and Walton Counties, who view economic development as a key cornerstone to a successful community. The vision that was set out 20 plus years ago by former Joint Development Authority members truly demonstrates regionalism and partnership.”

Help with a Federal Agency
One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
