Throughout the past week, the Democratic Party of Georgia barnstormed the Peach State following the signing of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, with local officials and labor leaders talking directly to Georgians about how the once-in-a-generation package will create thousands of good-paying union jobs, expand transit and transportation, and revitalize our state’s roads, bridges, and highways thanks to the leadership of Senators Ossoff and Reverend Warnock and Georgia’s six congressional Democrats — and no thanks to Georgia Republicans like GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker.
On Thursday, November 18, Georgia Democrats were joined by Richard Hollar, President of the Macon Central Labor Council; Toomsboro Mayor Joyce Denson; and Kendra Castelow, Vice Chair of Macon-Bibb County Democratic Party in front of the Macon Terminal Station. Leaders discussed how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help Georgia expand transit, pave the way for the I-14 corridor, and potentially build a high-speed rail network through Middle Georgia.
On Friday, November 19, Savannah Mayor Van Johnson joined the Democratic Party of Georgia and former Chatham County Commissioner Jay Jones on the Savannah River to thank President Biden and Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock for delivering $8 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to ease supply chain bottlenecks at the Georgia Port Authority.
On Monday, November 22, the Democratic Party of Georgia hosted a press conference in Columbus to discuss how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will bring more high-quality jobs to the Chattahoochee Valley with Congressman Sanford Bishop, Columbus City Councilwoman Toyia Tucker, and Dwayne Massengale, Political Director of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen.
