|Direct from the District
I’ve returned to Washington following a productive two-week District Work Period. These work sessions are some of the most meaningful times for me, as your representative, to hear from you. The meetings and conversations with folks from back home help me stay connected with our communities and figure out what I can do to better serve you in Congress.
A big thank you to everyone who joined me in Auburn and Evans last week for my “Coffee with your Congressman” events. These meet-and-greets allow me to speak one-on-one with folks from across the 10th District as we share our opinions over a cup of joe. I try to hold these forums as much as I can, and I look forward to holding more of these in the future.
|At Your Service
Mobile Office Hours are another great way to bring important information and services directly to the communities I represent. My staff will make stops in Glascock and Putman counties later this month to help folks cut through red tape and resolve issues that are being tied up in federal agencies.
Helping Georgians navigate Washington's bureaucracy and address important concerns is our job, so feel free to say hello to my team and let them know how we can help!
|Come Work in the People’s House
|Serving as an intern in my Congressional office is an exciting way to learn more about the legislative process while gaining academic credit for school. We offer these opportunities to college students in my Washington, D.C., Monroe, and Milledgeville offices year-round, and the deadline for spring internships is coming up!
Whether you’re able to work full-time or part-time, we always welcome dedicated young people in my office to learn the ins and outs of policy work, constituent services, and much more. I encourage interested young people to apply on my website here by Friday, November 8th, at 5:00 p.m.
|Defending Lives and Protecting Voices
|For the most recent episode of the Freedom Caucus Podcast, I welcomed advocate and founder of Live Action, Lila Rose, to speak on the important work she does to educate the public on the truth about abortion and fight back against the censorship of conservative voices. A powerful activist for life since the age of 15, Lila has been spreading the word about how we can support women and mothers without ending young, innocent lives. Thank you so much for joining me to share this important message, Lila.
You can listen to the podcast on SoundCloud later this week.
