This week, Georgians were able to safely come back together in celebration of the Fourth of July thanks to the shots in arms and checks in pockets from President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan. Throughout the week, local elected officials also underlined how urgent passing the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is to rebuilding our roads and bridges, bringing good-paying union jobs to Georgia, and winning the 21st century. And on Thursday, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden joined Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock and Mayor Van Johnson in Savannah to encourage Georgians of all ages to get their vaccine shots.
Here’s what Georgians saw this week:
