On Tuesday, November 9, 2021, Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) will participate in a dedication ceremony for the display of the Foundations of American Law & Government, a set of nine historic documents that will be prominently featured in the Monticello City Council Chambers at City Hall. 

“Eight years ago, I was privileged to stand with Governor Nathan Deal as he signed the law permitting this collection of historical documents to be displayed in any public building in Georgia,” said Congressman Hice. “It was the culmination of the work I undertook as a private citizen long before I became a Member of Congress. I participated this summer in dedication ceremonies at Shady Dale City Hall and the Jasper County Courthouse, and it gives me great pleasure to return to the community to celebrate this important display which will now also hang in the Monticello City Council Chambers.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
