Getting Back on Track

Written by Senator Brandon Beach

One-hundred years ago, rail was by far the most efficient and modern form of transportation available to the general public. The Trans-Continental Railway united a nation in the thought that long distance travel could be fast, comfortable and affordable. Fast forward a hundred years, and our nation’s major cities are inundated with cars commuting to and from work, trucks carrying freight cross country and buses driving citizens around the city. While technology has drastically improved in the last 100 years, the riddle of easy, convenient and affordable transportation options remains unsolved.

The Road to Recovery

Written by Senator Brandon Beach

On the evening of March 30th, the fate of Atlanta’s infrastructure was compromised. The I-85 bridge had just collapsed, and no one was certain what kind of impact this would have on our city. We were given estimates of months until the bridge repairs would be complete, and we were to be faced with gridlock in all directions on our commute to work. But by May 13th, the bridge repairs were complete, and just like that — traffic was open in all directions. Remarkably, GDOT and its many partners proved those initial estimates wrong by finishing the project in just 43 days.

It’s Time for Regional Transit Solutions

Written by Senator Brandon Beach

Life in metro Atlanta came to screeching halt at the end of March when a portion of I-85 collapsed. People who live in north Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett Counties were forced to find alternative routes to get into and out of Atlanta. The only good thing to come from this catastrophe is that people are now seeing the value in transit options and are beginning to use commute alternatives like MARTA.

Cybersecurity: A Growing Need

Written by Senator Brandon Beach

When you make a purchase online, how likely are you to hesitate when asked to input your personal and credit card information? For most, you probably don’t even think twice about it, and you likely have this data saved on sites where you frequently shop, like Amazon. While this is convenient, it’s not necessarily smart. Protecting consumer data has been an issue for businesses across the country, and with companies continuing to push for online bill-pay systems and as online transactions continue to increase, the risk of an accidental or intentional data breach increases.

Be Heart-Healthy

Written by Senator Brandon Beach

Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States? According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in three deaths is caused by heart disease, claiming nearly one million lives annually. Even more shocking, heart disease and stroke cost America nearly $1 billion a day in medical costs and lost productivity. That’s one in six U.S. healthcare dollars spent on cardiovascular disease. The facts are astonishing, and while these statistics are significant, there is good news; heart disease is preventable.
