As a Chief of Staff for a Georgia Member of Congress, I rely on GPPF as a well researched and thoughtful policy resource. They are integral in informing our team on a broad range of issues. The principles that guide GPPF are non-partisan. Their motivations are rooted in compassion and good will. They dedicate themselves to finding solutions to our public policy challenges which benefit all Americans. GPPF is the epitome of what a non-profit should be. Pure in intention, highly productive, and operated with the highest level of integrity.
My name is Tina Coria and I am the current Chairman of the Georgia National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Foundation that advocates for the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program, created by former US Senators Sam Nunn and John McCain to address what the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) deemed, in 1992 and still is today, to be the greatest domestic threat to our nation: high school dropouts. The Youth ChalleNGe Program operates under the authority of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, administered through the Chief, National Guard Bureau, and executed by the Adjutants General of the States and Territories. In Georgia, we have three Youth ChalleNGe Academies located at Fort Stewart, Fort Gordon and Milledgeville, which our Foundation serves. Since my earlier days working for Senator Nunn when he created this program, to now serving as the Georgia Youth ChalleNGe Foundation Chairman, I have relied heavily on the Georgia Public Policy Foundation (GPPF) to be our go-to as a non-partisan think tank for policy ideas to address constantly emerging issues by developing thoughtful and successful solutions that have served us well to keep our program in Georgia--Number One. I am most thankful for GPPF and look so forward to our continued partnership as we kick-off the next phase of Youth ChalleNGe to assist our Youth ChalleNGe Cadets with workforce development. It is currently in a pilot trial at Fort Stewart called Job ChalleNGe. Since 1991, I have counted on GPPF as my sterling asset in developing public policy initiatives that are both positive and practical in meeting and exceeding the challenges we face in our global society, without compromising our Georgia values!
I'd like to say that the GPPF is THE "go-to" organization for information and direction on public policy issues. I have known them to be spot-on with their evaluation of legislation and value their opinions when it comes to "thinking outside the box" on solutions to problems that Georgians face everyday.
I will always check with them first when it comes to formulating my own thoughts for an issue. I have the highest respect for this organization.
The thought provoking policy statements by the Georgia Public Policy Foundation are always compelling, well researched and well written. Many policy based organization seem to simply hide partisanship behind a thin veil of independence, but GPPF address issues that go across traditional partisans divides and propose solutions to problems facing Georgians of all persuasions.
I've been a supporter of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation since the late 1990's. I have relied on GPPF for sound, fact-based, free market research and data providing solutions to our most difficult issues including transportation, education, healthcare, and taxation.
In the current environment of partisan sniping and tribal political conflict it is much needed and refreshing to have the GPPF be an inclusive convener and platform for reasoned discussion on the great public policy issues of the day.
Active respectful debate built on research, data and a vision to make life better for all Georgians.
This is an amazing organization that provides up to date information on current issues important to me. The factual, unbiased reports on Georgia’s economy, transportation, education, healthcare, justice system, and employment are a dependable resource for anyone truly interested in where Georgia stands relative to other states, whether we excel or need improvement. The annual GPPF Georgia Legislative Policy Forum should be a ‘required attendance’ for all legislators - definitely a great learning experience.
A reliable source of factual information is hard to come by today. The Foundation has a 25 year plus record of getting their facts right. They stick to fiscal issues and are focused on creating practical solutions to challenging problems. Examples include charter schools, criminal justice reform and highway express lanes.
When it comes to looking for non-partisan, FACTUAL information, and concern for our great state of Georgia, you can always count on getting the facts straight when you talk to their team or read their information. Not influenced by agenda or "spin", it is my go-to place for facts. It has always been known to be of the highest integrity....always.
The Georgia Public Policy Foundation consistently provides rational, well-founded policies spanning the broad spectrum of issues facing legislators, staff and policy makers.
When people in Georgia want to know the truth about a matter ,they all want to ask the Georgia Public Policy Foundation. They have the reputation of “Telling it like it is !” Honesty and credibility are paramount - and that’s why they are the trusted “Go to organization” in the state of Georgia.
Effective non partisan public policy research institute in the State of Georgia, improving the lives of all Georgians. Focuses on health care, education, criminal justice reform, transportation issues and pension reform among other critical issues impacting our state.
GPPF does a great job of analyzing Georgia issues from a non-partisan perspective. They exhibit thorough research and deep thought on the most effective policies for our state. Plus, they present their policy solutions in a rational and civil manner. I personally have grown from my interaction with their process and presentation. More importantly, the great state of Georgia has benefitted enormously from their work. They are a prime example of a top notch policy think tank.
I am Ronny Just with Georgia Power. Public policy is hard and the Georgia Public Policy Foundation has been doing it well for a long time. Their independent voice and deep expertise has educated legislators, business leaders, and influencers alike on topics including healthcare, taxation and transportation...to name a few. We value working with them, but our greatest admiration comes when they respectfully disagree with us as they advance issues forward In the interest of all parties. Every state needs a centrist, conservative, free market voice like GPPF.
