Perdue’s Recess Record: 0 Public Events, No Focus on Growing Crisis

July 10, 2020

With Georgia facing an economic and health care crisis from surging coronavirus cases, Perdue is still refusing to make himself available to Georgians

ATLANTA — As Georgia is “headed for a crisis” from the surging coronavirus outbreak, Senator David Perdue is nowhere to be found. 

Despite high unemployment and a skyrocketing number of coronavirus cases that have pushed Georgia to the brink, Perdue has had no scheduled public events during the congressional recess — continuing his streak of hiding from Georgians and failing to hold a single public town hall over his time in office.

What’s Perdue been doing instead?

Now more than ever, Georgians need their elected officials to work for them and make themselves available. Yet Perdue continues focusing only on himself and would seemingly rather spend millions running ads in his “tight race” than make himself available to Georgians.

“While Georgia is in an economic and public health crisis, where is Senator David Perdue?” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Instead of working to help Georgians and being open to his constituents, Perdue has spent his week attacking critical programs for Georgia families and downplaying the growing threats facing our state.”
