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

Written by Senator John Albers

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.

The One-Sixth Opportunity for Georgia

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.

Improving education throughout Georgia was one of important topics during this year’s session and providing an increase in funding for education was a centerpiece of 2016 Fiscal Year Budget.

What Rising Tuition Costs Mean for You

Written by Senator John Albers

An educated and skilled workforce is critical to the success of Georgia. For many jobs, a college degree is now a mandatory requirement for salaried positions in corporate America. With the increase in society’s expectations has come an increase in tuition costs.

Transportation Funding Options

A major focus of the 2015 legislative session is improving the transportation options in Georgia. I have met and listened to scores of people; and I believe consensus exists. First, allow me to identify the problem. In Georgia, we have a growing population (5th fastest growing nationally for decades) resulting in congested roadways and infrastructure needing repair. In contrast, we spend the least per capita of all 50 states on transportation needs. Ultimately, we need to assure public safety while citizens and goods flow through our state. Secondly, we need to set parameters. Georgians overwhelmingly oppose a tax increase, including me. Lastly, the public deserves accountability and transparency with the funds used to solve these challenges.

Georgia Overcomes Challenges

Written by Senator John Albers

The recession of 2008 struck the entire country with a swift blow below the economy’s belt. Recovery has been difficult to say the least, and individual states have gone to great lengths to strengthen the quality of life for their citizens. Georgia is at the forefront of these movements, and has not only met expectations, but has exceeded plans for economic development. Unfortunately, the federal government as a whole has fallen behind. I look forward to better results with the new Congress sworn in earlier this year.

Digital Classroom Act

Written by Senator John Albers

The world we live in today is not the same one we were in 10 years ago. Now, everything is digital and technologically driven. Why, with all of the technological innovations intended to make our lives easier, are our children still carrying backpacks filled with heavy textbooks?

2015 Session Preview

Written by Senator John Albers

In the November 2014 elections, the people spoke and their voices could not be louder nor their words any clearer. They want positive and conservative solutions to issues arising here in Georgia and across the nation. This year, we welcome 10 new senators, each of whom I look forward to working with during the upcoming legislative session. On January 12, legislators will officially be sworn into office as the General Assembly marks the beginning of a new 40-day legislative term.
