Sonny Perdue on Government Reform

Republican GA Governor

 


Make government more responsive, efficient, & value-driven

We spent the first six years of my administration, before this recession even began, making government more responsive, more efficient, more value-driven. And then came the biggest state revenue drop since the Great Depression.

It would be easy to sit back and point fingers at Washington. But we must reject the course forward that promises the next generation little more than an expensive bill--crushing entitlements and unfunded mandates.

End partisan redistricting

Perdue will issue a challenge to the new General Assembly: draw a map that places the people of Georgia ahead of political parties and partisan politics. Remove political data from the redistricting process - do not divide our citizens simply because they choose to vote Democrat or Republican in a given election; make the number one criteria in the process the preservation of communities and united counties.
