A Call to Action for “Building a Stronger America”

Speaker_Ralston.jpgBy Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge)

From the world’s busiest airport to the fastest growing container port in America, Georgia leads the nation in moving people and goods. That didn’t happen by accident.

On the contrary, for generations, Georgians have invested in the infrastructure necessary to facilitate our forward momentum. 

Recently, we have invested in deepening the Port of Savannah with a quarter of a billion dollars in state funding. We have also modernized our funding for roads and bridges through the Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (HB 170).

We have planned prudently and invested wisely, but we still have more work to do. And, for the first time in many decades, we have an ally in Washington, D.C.

Spread the word about Aspen Dental’s National Day of Service on Saturday, June 24th

images.duckduckgo.com.jpgThousands of veterans can receive free dental care on Saturday, June 24th, when doctors and their teams from nearly 450 Aspen Dental-branded practices in 36 states open their doors for Aspen Dental’s National Day of Service – an event that is expected to be the largest single-day oral health initiative for veterans in 2017.

Like millions of other Americans, veterans can struggle to find dental care when they need it. That’s why Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative launched in 2014, focuses on helping veterans get that care.

Here is how you can help:

  • Please spread the word in your community! Interested veterans should call 1-844-AspenHMM (1-844-277-3646) to find a local participating practice and schedule an appointment. Space is limited and appointments are filling up fast!
  • Be sure to use #HealthyMouthMovement and tag Aspen Dental when posting on social media.

Thank you!

Rep. Jeff Jones
