Senator John Albers to Donate Legislative Salary to First Responders and Others in Need

Today, Sen. John Albers (R – Roswell) announced that he will be donating his legislative salary to first responders and those in need.

“During this difficult time, it is important now, more than ever, that we look after those who have dedicated their lives to looking after us,” said Sen. Albers. “As Chairman of the Senate Public Safety Committee and as a volunteer firefighter, I have witnessed first-hand the sacrifice that so many of our law enforcement officers, emergency medical services personnel, firefighters and so many others make on a daily basis. Their ability to adapt to an ever-changing health crisis is commendable and deserves nothing short of our praise and recognition. In addition, this pandemic has upended the lives of many Georgians and caused financial hardship for many. While this gesture may not be enough to bring economic security to every Georgian, it is my sincere hope that my legislative salary will benefit our first responders and others who are in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
