Congressman Scott was joined on the telephone town hall by: Mr. Ashley Bell, White House Policy Advisor on Entrepreneurship and Innovation and U.S. Small Business Administration Southeast Regional Administrator; Commissioner Mark Butler, Georgia Department of Labor; Dr. Colleen Kraft, Emory University Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Georgia Coronavirus Task Force Member; and Ms. Dayna Vidal, Licensed Registered Nurse and National Association for Healthcare Quality Certified Professional.

“We are in a very challenging period, but we will overcome this challenge by working together,” said Congressman Scott. “During our telephone town hall, we had a very distinguished group of speakers who shared vital information for families, workers and small business owners in Georgia and answered questions from callers and online attendees. My staff and I are also here for the long haul to empower our constituents with accurate and up-to-date information. In Congress, we’ve moved quickly to pass three emergency funding packages, and I will continue working to secure more emergency resources to protect the lives and livelihoods of the American people.”
