Bryan Co. officials meet with constituents at 'Grits and Government'

BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) -

Folks in Bryan County have weighed in with their lawmakers at “Grits and Government”, letting them know what issues are most important to them.

It's similar to the "Eggs and Issues" legislative breakfasts in other counties. The chamber shares their priorities with their elected officials before the upcoming general assembly session.

This year's top concerns include more funding for the I-95 interchange and ending reductions of troops at Fort Stewart.

"And so we want to let our elected officials know that we are one county with one voice and we think it's important that we present them with our legislative agenda to consider. We don't expect to get everything on the agenda, but they need to hear from the people who elected them to office and they appreciate our input,” said Brianne Yontz, executive director, RHBC Chamber of Commerce.

The "Grits and Government" legislative breakfast has become an annual event.
