I have shared previously how much fun we are having traveling the state speaking and “breaking bread” with folks. On Friday morning, we met with our friend and honorable Chase Daughtrey who took a break from the bench to host a Community Leaders luncheon in Adel and more!
2 Lane Travel with Bruce Thompson in Georgia
This past week, I had the opportunity to spend the morning with Tommy at his barber shop near the OK Cafe on West Paces Ferry Road. If the walls could talk, I am sure they would affirm the stories Tommy tells about all the famous visitors that have visited over the past 60+ years. Read this story and more!
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution released an article Wednesday morning regarding the recent findings in the Department of Labor. Over $1.1 Million was spent on free meals for employees during the pandemic. This is absolutely unacceptable as over thousands of Georgians lost their jobs and were denied unemployment. My comments in the article state, “If Commissioner Butler thinks is ok, therein lies the problem. If you knew it was not ok and you did it anyway, that’s a problem with your integrity.”
On Friday, we were honored to speak at the “Meet the Candidates” dinner hosted by the Cherokee County Republican Party at Catch 22 Bar & Grill in Canton. The owners of the restaurant were awesome and ensured the crowd was well-fed and taken care of. Unfortunately, they shared a personal story that is becoming all too common to small businesses. They typically receive a delivery truck Ocala FL each week, but this past week the truck never arrived. When they inquired, they were informed that their delivery truck would not be coming this week or next week or possibly ever again.
As we are #blazingthetrail, our campaign continues to build the momentum it needs to fight for the people of Georgia but time is of the essence!
