News from Representative David Scott


March 19, 2021



I hope this message finds you well. As your Representative in Washington, I wanted to provide you with an update on what’s happening in Georgia’s Thirteenth District and in Washington, D.C.


First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the 8 people who lost their lives due to the violent crimes committed in metro Atlanta earlier this week. May it echo across Georgia and the nation: We must expel hate and discrimination in all its forms.

COVID-19 Vaccine
Keeping our community safe and healthy is of the utmost priority to me. At the beginning of the month, I was joined by Clayton County Fire & Emergency Services and Clayton County Senior Services Department at Mundy’s Mill High School in Jonesboro, GA to distribute 500 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to seniors in Clayton County.

According to reports, nearly 3 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Georgia. As we continue to ramp up our efforts to vaccinate all Americans, I encourage you to take the vaccine when it becomes available to you.

"House Democrats heeded Americans’ calls for help by passing the American Rescue Plan. Together, we will put an end to this pandemic, rebuild our economy, safely send children back to school, and get Americans back to work," via @RepDavidScott on Twitter.


George Floyd Justice In Policing Act 
For far too long, pleas for justice and reform have fallen by the wayside in Congress. I voted to pass H.R. 1280, the Justice In Policing Act to honor George Floyd and the countless individuals who lost their lives to police brutality, and to take a meaningful step towards reconstructing policing in the 21st Century.
