Beginning at 7:30 a.m., local residents will get the opportunity to ask questions of Cagle and six other state legislators: Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville; Sen. John Wilkinson, R-Toccoa; Rep. Lee Hawkins, R-Gainesville; Rep. Matt Dubnik, R-Gainesville; Rep. Emory Dunahoo Jr., R-Gillsville; and Rep. Timothy Barr, R-Lawrenceville.

“The Greater Hall Chamber always has 100 percent participation from the Hall County delegation at this event,” said chamber President Kit Dunlap. “Our legislators remain interested in hearing what the citizens of this community have to say, and the attendees want to hear what the legislators have to say.”

Dunlap said the slate of issues on the breakfast’s agenda include transportation, water, taxes, jobs, education, health care and workforce development.

Cagle has been a frequent guest of the breakfast, which in previous years has covered a wide range of topics, from medical marijuana to gun rights to the economy.

Not only is it a time for the business community and the public to pose questions to lawmakers, it’s often an early look into the issues and bills that the Georgia General Assembly will take up in its next session, which begins in early January.

Reservations can be made by contacting Gerri Collins at 770-532-620, ext. 106, or by email at gcollins@ghcc.com.
