Prior to coming to Congress and throughout my tenure as your representative in Washington, I have been working tirelessly to advance conservative principles and give a voice to the many Americans who feel as though their voices are not being heard in our Nation’s capital. It’s been heartening to see the progress we’ve been able to make under President Trump’s leadership, and I’m very proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved since his inauguration.
Bringing Georgia values to Washington, I’ve been honored to receive several awards from organizations in recognition of my efforts to advance the conservative principles. For instance, last week, I was humbled to be named FreedomWorks’ Member of the Month for March because of my commitment to reducing waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government.
Through the bills I’ve sponsored – from the Presidential Allowance Modernization Act, which would reduce post-presidential pensions, to the Official Time Reporting Act, which limits union work on the taxpayer’s dime – I’m working to reduce the scope of unnecessary government perks.
When it comes to leaders in the family-values movement, the Family Research Council is always on the frontlines, and the organization recently honored me with its True Blue Award for my support of pro-life and pro-family legislation. Having introduced the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which defines life as beginning at conception, and supported numerous other pro-life bills throughout my time in Congress, I’m proud to stand strong for the causes of faith, family, and freedom. And because of my advocacy of pro-growth policies and economic freedom, I was named a Defender of Economic Freedom by Club for Growth, being one of only 25 to earn this award.
Finally, as the very first Communications Chair of the House Freedom Caucus, I’m continuing to advance this conversation to conservative Americans across the country. I’m thrilled to announce a new weekly initiative – the Freedom Caucus Podcast – and I’m proud to serve as its host.
On Thursday, we released the first episode, which featured Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows as my guest, and the two of us talked about everything from the founding of the organization to the ways in which we can fight for a conservative agenda even in a Democrat-run House. I’d encourage anyone who’s interested to take a listenhere to learn a little bit more about our caucus and what we do.
From the bottom of my heart, it is my honor to serve you, and I look forward to sharing more of our conservative values with interested parties across our great Nation.
