Job creation and job growth is critical for America. Atlanta is a major transportation hub, is centrally located in the Southeastern United States, and is home to the busiest airport in America. Atlanta, particularly the 4th District, would be a perfect location for Amazon’s newest idea: An East Coast Headquarters. The 4th District not only has the acreage necessary for the new Amazon East Coast Headquarters, but is also located directly on I-20 and with access to intermodal transit through road, rail, and air. The creation of 50,000 jobs in the region for all education and skill levels would be an excellent addition to the Atlanta economy and the region. We will work with State and Local leaders to help bring Amazon to Atlanta. While large corporations are always a wonderful addition to the region, small businesses should not be overlooked. Small Businesses comprise over 70% of all jobs in the United States. Small Businesses need better access to available resources from the Federal government, like the SBA, as well as education programs to help entrepreneurs scale up and expand their products to market.
