In an op-ed appearing in The Atlanta Patch today, Georgia State Representative Scott Holcomb (GA-82) makes the case that international development is a vital tool in keeping America safe. holcombscott

There’s a time-honored saying that any state legislator knows well: “All politics is local.” It remains true today. As a community, we need to remain focused on what keeps our local economy prosperous and our cities like Atlanta safe and secure. It turns out that international trade and development does just that.

Rep. Holcomb’s op-ed comes just as Cycle For Security’s Janessa Goldbeck rolls into Atlanta today for a 6:00 pm event at Parish Market featuring City Council Member Aaron Watson and various community leaders from Atlanta.
