Piggybacking on his State of the State address earlier in the week, Gov. Nathan Deal met with members of the Hall County Republican Party on Saturday in Gainesville to discuss his budgetary and legislative priorities for this year’s session of the Georgia General Assembly. “It’s always nice to be able to come home,” Deal, a longtime Hall County resident and former state and U.S. representative, told a rapt audience of more than 100 attendees at the Holiday Inn Gainesville-Lanier Centre on E.E. Butler Parkway.
