The Process of Bills and Budgets

Written by Senator John Albers

On January 9, 2017, the Georgia General Assembly convened for the first term of the 154th Legislative Session, and I had the privilege of being sworn in for my fourth term.

From the start of the session, the Senate and the House of Representatives will meet for fourty days to discuss, vet and vote on legislation. During the interim, I worked to draft the “Bring Back Small Business” legislation, which is designed to reduce the regulatory burden small businesses face. It will create a one-stop shop for all small businesses when it comes to permit processing and applications and will provide incentives for small business owners who hire new staff.

The Patriot Flight

The first Patriot Flight was founded in 2016 by the Roswell Rotary. The Patriot Flight brought our first responders — fire, police and EMS, to visit the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Thank you to all who helped along the way, from sponsors to volunteers. The trip was an overwhelming success and will be replicated by others.

In Support of Our Flag, Our Anthem and All Which They Represent

Written by Senator John Albers

Our country’s national anthem is played at sporting events, holidays, festivals, political events and military bases throughout the country and the world. When it is played, it signifies our independence, support for our military, first responders and the privilege we have to be living in the greatest country in the world. For most, the “Star Spangled Banner” is chill-inducing and brings pride to those who hear it. However, for a select few, our anthem is a way to protest current events and political agendas. But thankfully, for most, it is an honor to stand with pride and put their hand on their heart in support of the anthem and the men and women who risk their lives daily for our freedom and this great nation.

Winning the War on Terrorism

Written by Senator John Albers

Winning the war on terror is more important than ever. It’s a war being fought at home and around the globe. Our nation and our liberties have come under attack in places like California and Orlando where lives were lost as a result of terrorist activities. It’s imperative that we stay alert, and realize that each one of us plays an important role in preventing and fighting the biggest threat to our security, our freedoms and our way of life.

Come Together—Stand United, Not Divided

Written by Senator John Albers

I struggle with words to describe the grave events happening in America and around the world this summer. I fell to my knees to pray on several occasions. Investigations will be conducted, and we’ll look for answers, but no answer will change the past. I reject the notion that a few bad people will divide our nation, the pundits and press sensationalizing every moment, creating additional controversy, and the leaders and groups who will use these tragedies for personal gain. We’ll mourn those who lost their lives, take a deep breath, and move forward. We are citizens of the greatest nation on earth, and with great resolve, better days are still ahead. May God bless the fallen.

An Abundance of Thankgiving

Written by Senator John Albers

This Thanksgiving, we have much to be thankful for as fellow Georgians and citizens of this great nation. It’s easy to take for granted the many blessings we have in our lives. Kari and I lost many good friends and family this year to heaven. Many times, it takes a tragedy for all of us to truly appreciate our family, friends and community. As I reflect on my abundance of Thanksgiving, I am both humbled and grateful.

Fair Tax: A Way to Restore the American Dream

Every day, thousands of people immigrate to America to pursue the American Dream; a dream of economic prosperity, success and freedom. From 1945 to the mid-1970s, productivity in the United States experienced significant growth, and middle-class Americans shared in the gains. Their earnings increased in correlation to productivity increases. Middle-class Americans were thriving and making a life for themselves and their families.

North Fulton: Great Schools, Safe Neighborhoods, and High Quality of Life

Written by Senator John Albers

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood stem from when I was playing outside with all of the kids from my neighborhood. As I grew older and had children of my own, I wanted to ensure they could create the same wonderful childhood memories. My wife and I were fortunate enough to find not just a house, but a home and community.

Metro Atlanta, as with most major metropolitan areas, suffers from traffic congestion. Sitting in traffic impacts economic competitiveness, air quality, fuel efficiency, family time and safety. Let me share my vision for disrupting this pattern and changing the game.
