RELEASE: As Georgia Business Rankings Drop,Stacey Abrams is the Only Candidate Who Can Build a Thriving Economy
ATLANTA – This week, CNBC released their yearly “Top States for Business” list – and Georgia slipped from second to seventh. Democratic nominee for governor and former House Democratic Leader Stacey Abrams is the only candidate with a a proven track record of and commitment to making Georgia a good place to live, work, and do business. As Democratic Leader, Abrams supported smart business tax incentives, blocked tax increases on middle income families, supported health care affordability and quality public education, and rejected discriminatory legislation opposed by bipartisan leaders and the business community. In the same year, she earned an "A" rating from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the "Friend of Labor" award.
As out of touch candidates threaten Georgia's economic security with their rhetoric and actions, Leader Abrams released the following statement:
“I know with the right investments, Georgia families and businesses across the state can thrive. As governor, I will ensure we create more economic opportunity -- not less -- by building a robust infrastructure, expanding access to health care and public education, and giving Georgians a chance to learn new skills so they can earn more to support themselves and their families."
Abrams is the only candidate with not just a record supporting these critical metrics for business success, but also a plan to build a thriving economy. On each of these metrics, Abrams has proposed robust solutions.
