Hice on the Homefront
Dear Friends,

Whenever I travel around the 10th District, I’m grateful for the opportunity to tour local businesses, hear from community stakeholders, and learn how I can better serve folks at home. On Thursday, I sat down with Johnson County leaders to discuss business development needs in the area. It’s always amazing to see the work firsthand and meet with those who support economic growth from the ground up. Their hard work is vital to the community. Thanks for hosting me!

Next, I made my way over to Electro-Mech Scoreboard Company for a site visit. With roots in Wrightsville since 1963, this small-town company has built a business model for winners. Its scoreboards cover the spectrum from nationally televised football games on ESPN to local high school basketball games. Keep up the great work!

Afterwards, I stopped by Pallet Rack Surplus Distribution Center for a tour of the facility. Founded in Covington, the company recently purchased a facility in Wrightsville to provide efficient and cost-effective pallet rack installations to residents. Thanks for showing me around.

Following my visit to the Pallet Rack Surplus Distribution Center, I drove over to Sandersville to meet with the Development Authority of Washington County. While there, we talked about economic expansion strategies and how the county has made successful improvements over time.

Then, I made a pit stop at Premier Tire in Tennille. With 30 employees and a $1.5 million investment in the community, it provides tire and preventative maintenance services to the transportation and industrial industries. Through an eco-friendly and consumer-friendly process, Premier Tire has brought a new approach to long-term care of tires. Great being with y’all!

I spent the rest of the evening meeting with constituents and celebrating life in Milledgeville. As many of you know, I am deeply committed to advocating for legislation that will protect the unborn in every circumstance. Without the right to life, there can be no right to liberty or the pursuit of happiness. It was such an honor to spend time with folks who are on the frontlines in the fight for life!

My staff wrapped up the week at Georgia Piedmont Technical College for the third annual Regional Job Fair. Connecting job seekers with prospective employers is one important way we can help grow our economy and expand opportunities for hardworking Georgians. A big thank you to the economic development offices of Newton, Morgan, Jasper, Rockdale, and Walton counties as we work to ensure that community talent has the chance to meet and interact with these developing businesses and industries.

Here to Help
As always, my team on the ground is here to help all residents as we strive to offer outstanding constituent service. This month, my office is heading to McDuffie, Glascock, and Putnam counties to provide one-on-one assistance for those seeking help receiving their veterans, Social Security, or Medicare benefits, just to name a few. For more information on when and where my team will be throughout the month, please check out my website.

Join Me for Coffee
I’m hosting two “Coffee with Your Congressman” events this week to discuss what’s brewing both nationally and locally, answer your questions, and hear about your concerns. There will be no speeches, no agenda. Just good coffee and good conversation because it’s absolutely imperative to connect with the community and have engaging conversations about local priorities and policy issues. This event is free and open to the public, so I hope to see you there. Click here for additional details.


Serving Your Country
It is an honor to nominate the very best candidates to represent the 10th District and attend our service academies. With the deadline coming up this Friday, October 11th at 5:00 p.m., I highly encourage all bright and motivated students to complete and send in their applications to my office. To learn more about the application process, please visit my website or call Deputy Chief of Staff, Jessica Hayes, at 706-564-1286.

Stories from the Capital
As the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) changes leadership, I encourage folks to check out a very special Freedom Caucus Podcast episode commemorating the end of Congressman Mark Meadows's tenure as Chairman and celebrating the beginning of Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs's term.

We shared stories from our times interacting with President Trump and making tough choices while outlining our goals for the future of the caucus. Without question, HFC is in good hands moving forward. To listen to the full episode, visit SoundCloud or Apple Podcasts.


The Week Ahead
With Congress out of session for an extended October District Work Period, I look forward to stopping by communities throughout the region for individual meetings, site visits, and constituent forums.

Keep an eye out on my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages to stay up to date on the latest from Washington.

Sincerely,
