What Georgia thinks about...


Introducing the Politically Georgia panel: We invited Georgians to weigh in on big questions facing the state.

Our group of about 50 includes teachers, tech industry workers, retirees, stay-at-home moms and one farmer. Each week we will send a question to the group and compile the responses here.

What Georgia thinks about: Winning Amazon - how far should the state go?
