Today, following Senate passage of the American Rescue Plan to deliver crucial, immediate relief to Georgians, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement:
“Elections matter. Leadership matters. Thanks to Georgia voters who showed up and elected Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, the American people are getting real relief to recover from this economic crisis and stop COVID-19 for good.
The Biden-Harris American Rescue Plan will help us vaccinate more people, support working families with direct relief checks, and finally reopen schools safely and put us on a path to a better future. Georgia Democrats made this bill better and ensured its passage — while every Republican lawmaker voted against helping Americans in need. When Georgia voters called for change, Democrats delivered. Now, we’re ready to keep delivering on our promises for the people.”
