Matt Hudson; Carol Steckel, director of the North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance; Tarren Bragdon, President of the Foundation for Government Accountability; former Georgia State Senator Sam Zamarripa; John Kramer, Vice President for Communications at the Institute for Justice, and Dr. Rich Demillo, director of the Center for 21st Century Universities at Georgia Tech.

Thank you for the great work that the Public Policy Foundation is doing across our state setting a wonderful example. I first ran for the Senate in 1994, and the Foundation was that resource I called upon to be a great help to me as we were articulating positions and formulating public policy initiatives. We appreciate very much your leadership and all that you stand for.
