Chamber President Selected for Congressional Covid Task Force


The Forsyth County Chamber President and CEO, James McCoy, has been appointed to Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux's Covid-19 task force. The task force will provide Rep. Bourdeaux with information to aid in overcoming issues like vaccine distribution and in-person schooling.

“I am grateful to Congresswoman Bordeaux and her staff for assembling the task force. She clearly is interested in getting a solid understanding of the impact of COVID-19 in the area,” McCoy said. “We had an engaging and open conversation about the impact of COVID-19 on business community and other segments of the community. I look forward to working with Congresswoman Bordeaux and the other members of the task force.”

"As one of my first actions in Congress, I am assembling a COVID-19 task force of Georgians from a wide range of backgrounds so we can hit the ground running to get our arms around this deadly pandemic," said Rep. Bourdeaux. "As a country, we're nearing the horrific milestone of 375,000 lives taken by this disease. Georgia's hospitals are at capacity, forcing patients to wait for care sitting in hallways while our exhausted health care workers scramble to treat them. It is my top priority to get COVID-19 under control, and I'm glad to have this task force working alongside me to address the urgent needs here in our district."
