DPG Statement on Kemp’s Irresponsible Executive Order

July 6, 2020

ATLANTA — Today, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman, Nikema Williams issued the following statement on Governor Brian Kemp’s irresponsible executive order to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops in Atlanta:

“It is absolutely disgusting that after months of inaction on the plagues of coronavirus and police brutality currently killing Black Georgians, Brian Kemp is now using his executive power to protect buildings instead of the people he is supposed to serve. 

For months, we have begged the governor to take serious steps to stop COVID-19 from decimating our communities, but he refuses. His choice to deploy National Guard troops for today’s selfish purpose is outrageous and will endanger lives.”
