Staton. “Serving as a member of the Senate Rules, Senate Appropriations, Senate Finance and Senate Banking and Financial Institutions Committees, as well as Majority Whip, it was a privilege to work with legislators and interested stakeholders to make Georgia a better place to live, work and do business.”
