Work Week Wrap-Up 
Dear Friends,

Hallelujah, He is risen! Dee Dee and I hope that all of you had a happy Easter. Additionally, wishing our Jewish friends a meaningful and joyous Passover. Let us reflect on the love of God and our faith during this time of rejoicing and renewal.

Please also take a moment to lift up all those who were targeted in terrorist attacks at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. I’m praying for healing and peace for the victims, their families, and the entire country in the wake of this evil act. Simply put, religious intolerance of any kind should never be accepted.

In the District
Here at home, the 10th District is so fortunate to have state and local leaders devoted to taking our state’s successes to the next level. Last Tuesday, I enjoyed attending the Gwinnett Leadership Forum for its spring breakfast to highlight some of my work in Congress and discuss our shared goals. Thanks for having me!

Afterwards, I provided a legislative update to local residents at TradeWind Coffee Co. in Dacula during one of my meet-and-greet events. Because knowing your thoughts and concerns helps me better serve you, I work hard to make sure I have time with folks in the district whenever I am home. A big thank you to everyone who attended and asked questions. I look forward to the next one!

Before heading to lunch, I sat down with Barrow County officials and representatives from the North East Georgia Health System to discuss its local facility and the services the location provides to its residents.

At lunch, I spoke to a group of pastors about the spiritual battle that our Nation is facing and acknowledged in desperation how much we need His grace, wisdom, favor, and blessing. I urge everyone to hear the gospel and respond in faith to the love of God through Jesus Christ.

Then, I made my way over to Cantsink Manufacturing in Winder. As a leading producer of helical piles, this company helps flood victims and utility providers stay above water. During the site visit, we also discussed further developing the solar industry and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) program offered by the United States Department of Agriculture. Thanks for having me.

That afternoon, I congratulated two service academy nominees who recently received appointments to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Garrett Dalley of Dacula and Gordon “Tucker” Keadle of Auburn represent the future of our Armed forces, and I want to thank them and their families for their service. Best of luck on this exciting new journey.

On Wednesday, I had a productive conversation with Columbia County Farm Bureau representatives about the importance of agriculture to our state’s economy. We also chatted immigration reform, the danger of socialism versus the beauty of our free enterprise system, the solvency of social security, and more. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and concerns with me!

From the first 100 days of the Democrat majority to the Green New Deal to the Mueller Report, there is plenty of news to share. Following my meeting with local farmers, I sat down with Brad Means on WJBF NewsChannel 6 to discuss the top headlines in D.C., in the 10th District, and across America. Watch my interview on the Means Report here.

Acceptance to a United States Service Academy is a life-changing event, and I was thrilled to join Greenbrier High School senior Justin Dygert for his signing ceremony to the United States Naval Academy last week. His appointment is the equivalent of a full ride scholarship – with room, board, and a monthly allowance. Click here to learn more about Justin’s journey to Annapolis.

No Collusion. No Obstruction.
On Thursday morning, Attorney General Bill Barr released the Mueller report to the American people and you can view it here for yourself.

It’s unfortunate that some of my Democrat colleagues seem to be having some difficulty coming to grips with the fact that President Trump did NOT in fact collude with Russia. While the verdict of “no collusion” is critically important, here’s what is also important for Americans to know; it isn’t just that there was no collusion, it's that there never was any evidence of collusion from the beginning.

As many of you know, several of my colleagues and I have been deeply involved in making sure we get to the bottom of how exactly the Mueller probe started. Americans deserve to know the truth. I joined Todd Starnes on Fox News Radio on Friday to discuss more of the Mueller Report, and I encourage you to take a listen here.

The People’s Choice
Our district is full of talented, young artists, and I want to offer the opportunity for constituents to vote on their “best in show.” If you haven’t already, please check out my Facebook page to see the amazing artwork, "Like" your favorite, and "Share" on your own Facebook page to help us spread the word. Every “Like” earns one point and a “Share” earns two points for each piece of art. The submission that receives the most points by Friday, April 26th at 3:00 p.m. will receive our People's Choice Award and hang in my Monroe District Office for the next year.

Additionally, I hope you will join me this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for our 2019 Congressional Art Competition Celebration, starting with an artwork scavenger hunt and ending with the announcement of this year’s winners. The event will be extra special featuring McTier Art and the gifted mother-son duo, Lucy and Jace McTier. The McTier’s paintings and portraits have been showcased around the world in personal collections, exhibits, and even the White House. The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Monroe Art Guild, located at 205 South Broad Street.

At Your Service
Office hours are an effective way for constituents to connect with my staff and let us know how we can continue to best represent Georgia’s 10th District in Washington. From farmers applying for grants to seniors having issues with their Social Security benefits to veterans needing more information about VA services, my office is here to ensure that you get the answers you need.

In April, representatives will be on hand in Taliaferro, Warren, and Morgan counties to meet with constituents and assist them with federal matters. For more information, residents may call my Monroe District Office at 770-207-1776 or visit my website here.

The Week Ahead
With another District Work Period on deck, I look forward to connecting with the great people of the 10th District and seeing all of the good happening right here in our own backyard!

As always, I’m here to serve you. Please contact my office with any questions, comments, or concerns. Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep track of news and upcoming events!
