ATLANTA — State Rep. Mark Hamilton (R-Cumming) received the 2014 Legislator of the Year award from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
"I am humbled and honored to receive such an esteemed award from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce," Hamilton said. "As a state legislator, one of my top priorities is bringing jobs to the state of Georgia, as this is something that affects us all and will shape the economic future for our children and grandchildren."
The Georgia Chamber chose Hamilton for his efforts to promote job growth and economic development in Georgia.
"Rep. Hamilton helped shepherd one of the chamber's top priorities through the legislative process this year," said Roy Robinson, Georgia Chamber's Government Affairs Council chair. "With his help, we have ensured a level playing field for all businesses that are required to pay into the state's unemployment insurance trust fund."
