“Changing the tax code was the single greatest thing we could do to unleash economic growth in Georgia and across the country,” said Senator Perdue. “Just last week on Tax Day, Cox Enterprises gave well-deserved employee bonuses. It was great to join some of those employees today in Macon to highlight the new opportunities for Georgia businesses to compete on the global stage. For five consecutive years, Georgia has been named the best state in which to do business. Without a doubt, the corporate tax cut is having a stimulative impact on our economy and will help us continue our record of great success.”

“Thanks to the recent passage of the federal tax cuts, Cox was able to invest in infrastructure upgrades, and in our biggest resource, our employees,” said Bonnie Lopez-Crowe, market vice president for Cox Middle Georgia. “Cox provided each employee with over a year of service a Tax Day bonus, thanking them for their dedication and commitment to Cox and our customers.  All of us at Cox Middle Georgia thank Senator Perdue for his visit today. We appreciate hearing his thoughts on the country, leadership, and his time in office.”


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
