Senator David Perdue To Fight For Georgia Families In U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) released the following statement after being sworn in as Georgia's junior Senator in the 114th Congress:
“I am honored and humbled to be Georgia’s next Senator, and I am excited to work alongside my colleague Johnny Isakson. But I came to Washington for one reason: to make America better for future generations. Georgia families are frustrated with what they are getting from their federal government, and it’s easy to see why. The economy is not where it should be, Washington continues to squabble at the expense of moving our country in the right direction, and the Obama Administration continues to operate without transparency or any regard to the wishes of the American people.
"As part of the new Senate majority, I am going to roll my sleeves up and get to work fighting for the people of Georgia. My commitment is to build consensus and work with my colleagues to produce results, but never compromise my principles. I hope to bring a fresh perspective and some business sense to the U.S. Senate. I want to prevent the unintended consequences politicians have put on Georgia’s businesses and families through sweeping legislation that too often doesn’t solve the problems Georgians face every day. I will work to put forward commonsense, conservative solutions to help Georgia families and to get our country back on track.”
