Featured Event: Glynn Co. Lowcountry Boil

A nice crowd turned out tonight for the Glynn County Democratic Party Lowcountry Boil. I enjoyed meeting so many informed citizens. I share your concerns about Glynn County. It's Superfund Sites must be cleaned up as soon as possible. Research shows that these sites, which are uncontrolled or abandoned places where hazardous waste is located, are affecting local ecosystems. They are health hazards which have been ignored by government officials. Click here for information on Superfund Sites. Second, the Port of Brunswick should be getting more funding to ensure its continued growth and safety. The port serves as the economic engine of the community, and should receive the funding required to sustain future growth and safety. Lastly, conservation must take place to protect Glynn County from overdevelopment. The county's location and landscape are very attractive to a variety of development interests. Conservation and the encouragement of 'sustainable development' are key to preserving the community. As Congressman, I will lead efforts to achieve these important goals for Glynn County, as well as many other initiatives.
