In the Army, I learned that the best way to get a good man was to look at his past efforts. That means that Bill Jackson is that man for the state Senate in Georgia. He's done a lot of good things for Columbia County and the counties around us. All of the people have benefited.
Jackson was responsible for passing the bill to set up our present election system, which I feel is the best in the state and the best in the United States. That bill meant Columbia County went from one voter registration point and nine precincts to our present dozens of places to register, and dozens more to vote.
Jackson passed a bill to help senior citizens with their property taxes. He has responded to hundreds of requests for help with other needs. He will always be available to listen, respond, and get results, whatever the problem.
Bill Jackson has high standards, and he lives those standards. I know that in the state Senate of Georgia, I will always be proud of what he has done, and what he will do. And he will serve all of the people in the district, not a special few.
