Walker. “I look forward to working with the governor to pass his legislative priorities that address the issues that are important to Georgians and my constituents. I’m excited to help with his efforts to promote private sector job growth, ensure access to quality healthcare for all Georgians, improve K-12 education, and support our veterans and law enforcement. The responsibility of serving as a floor leader is one that I am happy and humbled to take on, and I am eager to serve District 20 and the State of Georgia in this capacity.”
