Love for Georgia was palpable at the State Capitol on Tuesday as the Gwinnett Chamber conducted its annual Day at the Capitol program presented by Jackson EMC. The 18-member chamber delegation representing 13 businesses in Gwinnett spent the day meeting with legislators and statewide leaders to thank them for their leadership in creating a strong, pro-business climate.
The program kicked off with meetings with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp. Afterwards, the group viewed both the House and Senate legislative sessions from the galleries while the Gwinnett Legislative Delegation recognized the Gwinnett Chamber. The Chairs of the Gwinnett House and Senate delegations, Representative Dewey McClain and Senator Nikki Merritt respectively, delivered morning orders recognizing February 14, 2023, as Gwinnett Chamber Loves Georgia Day (HR 183 & SR 129). Furthermore, every legislator received a Valentine’s Day gift of Gwinnett business-branded items with an appreciation letter for keeping Georgia the best state in which to do business. Gwinnett boasts an 84.4% diversity index, is the fastest growing population in the state, and boasts more than $4.1 billion in private capital investment over the last 5 years. Without the leadership under the Gold Dome and the partnerships across the state, Georgia would not be the destination state for businesses to grow and thrive, and the Gwinnett Chamber “loves” its legislators for it.
