Dear Friends of Georgia,
More than 20 years ago, the Georgia Public Policy Foundation was established with the goal of promoting market-based public policy in our state. We began publishing a newsletter and occasional papers, holding policy events and sending out our weekly “Friday Fax.”
About 15 years ago, we created our Web site to take advantage of Al Gore’s invention, the Internet, and started posting our papers and the Friday Fax. In 2003, we committed to publishing a weekly commentary and, as more people switched to e-mail, we gradually did away with the Friday Fax facsimile version (you did remember that’s what “fax” stands for?!) and renamed it the Friday Facts.
We embraced social media and nowadays you can follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, register to chat with our experts on our blog, The Forum, and watch an ever-increasing number of event and policy videos.
Today it’s time to unveil our new and improved Web site. And yes, we sat quietly as President Obama said, “You did not build that!” That’s because we were smart enough to stick to our areas of expertise and let the real experts build the Web site.
Our goal is to make it easier for you to find what they are looking for and easy to share our research and ideas with your friends. Undoubtedly, we’ll experience a few hiccups as we get acquainted with our new site, but we’ll try not to foist them on you! Visit www.georgiapolicy.org, then e-mail us at and let us know your thoughts:
- What do you like about the site?
- What can we improve on the site?
- What’s not working for you?
We look forward to your feedback!
President and CEO
