Georgia: Members of GA's Rural Water Association Asked to Support U.S. Senator Chambliss (R-GA)

Members of Georgia’s Rural Water Association this week received a letter encouraging them to support the re-election of U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.).

The letter, signed by Jimmy Matthews, Executive Director of the Georgia Rural Water Association, was mailed on September 18th to 1,000 Association members around the state. The letter highlights Saxby’s accomplishments including his commitment to Georgia’s rural communities, efforts to lower gas prices and increase domestic oil drilling and lower taxes for Georgia families.

“ Saxby has been instrumental in maintaining funding for the Rural Water and Waste Disposal program which you know is vital to all our rural communities and their immediate needs and future growth,” said Matthews. He continues, “Saxby has also supported and worked with us to fund the Circuit Riders who work with our communities to provide safe and clean water supplies and to help them comply with the Environmental Protection Administration regulations.”

Also last week, Atlanta’s Thomas Barber Shop owner Tommy Thompson sent a similar letter to 2,000 barbers all over Georgia urging their support of Saxby’s re-election. Over 1,700 Funeral Directors also received a letter signed by Lauren W. McDonald III, owner of L.W. McDonald and Son Funeral Home in Cumming, and David W. Roach, Funeral Director at West Cobb Funeral Home, Inc. in Cobb County, encouraging them to also support Saxby this November.

Saxby is seeking re-election for his second term in the United States Senate. His re-election has been endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 180 Georgia County Commissioners, 190 city officials, 239 law enforcement officers, over 100 Georgia Democrats, veterans from all over Georgia and Vets for Freedom, the nation’s largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans’ organization. He is the Ranking Republican Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry and a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Senate Rules Committee. Senator Chambliss previously represented Georgia’s 8th congressional district for four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives where he served as the Chairman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security.
