Middle-Class Georgians

I will fuel the success of Georgia’s middle class by investing in the fundamentals: education, healthcare, housing and making a good living. As governor, I will provide property tax relief for Georgia homeowners, tax rebates for everyone making less than $250,000, establish the Small Business Fund and close the gap between minority and non-minority businesses. My plan will also make college and childcare more affordable, expand Medicaid and support community safety.
