Jim spent his career analyzing businesses, finding that successful businesses that sustain growth are usually ones that believe and invest in their people. Our country is no different.
Today, Georgia’s aging infrastructure is struggling to keep pace with our state’s growth, and significant water main breaks in Columbus and Atlanta this spring only further highlight the need for additional investments that can both put people back to work and spur economic activity.
The American Society of Civil Engineers gave Georgia’s infrastructure a “C” grade in 2014, with our state earning “C-“ in roads and bridges and only a “C+” in drinking water.1
Rebuilding infrastructure in Georgia and across the country will help put people back to work, grow our economy, ensure the roads and bridges our families travel on are safe, increase access to rural broadband internet so entrepreneurs can start businesses wherever they want to live and increase the quality of life in Georgia for all of our citizens.
As Georgia’s next U.S. Senator, Jim will work to bring our state’s infrastructure into the 21st century.
