U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., accepted an endorsement today from the Georgia Association of Manufacturers in support of his re-election to the United States Senate.
“Johnny Isakson has been tireless in his commitment to manufacturing in Georgia,” said Georgia Association of Manufacturers President G.L. “Roy” Bowen, III. “From his work in education – particularly technical education to ensure a quality pool of talent to fill important jobs, to battling government regulations that add to the cost of products and business – Johnny Isakson has wholeheartedly earned our support. There are not enough words to express everything Johnny Isakson has done on our behalf.”
In their endorsement, the Georgia Association of Manufacturers cited Isakson’s efforts on behalf of the industry dating from his service in the Georgia General Assembly and as chairman of the Georgia Board of Education. The Georgia Association of Manufacturers “applauds Isakson’s bipartisan coalition to pass the first major reform of federal job training programs in 20 years, the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act.”
Isakson’s work on comprehensive tax reform was also cited by the organization, as well as his work to expand the Port of Savannah.
“I have been proud to do whatever I can to aid Georgia’s world-class workforce so that we can develop and maintain a vibrant economy,” said Isakson. “Georgia offers some of the hardest workers in the world. We find honor in our work; we want to improve our skill sets; and we want the jobs of the 21st century that allow for personal development and to put food on our families’ tables. This endorsement means a great deal to me.”
Isakson last week earned endorsements from the National Federation of Independent Business and the National Association of Wholesale-Distributors, adding to his growing list of individuals and organizations that are supporting his re-election.
