Join us for a virtual town hall meeting with Congressman Buddy Carter to learn about a global overview of COVID-19, how the federal government is taking action, and how they’re keeping their constituents informed during this difficult time. The format is an hour in length with built-in time to answer questions. Moderating the discussion is Georgia Bio President & CEO Maria Thacker-Goethe.
You are able to submit questions in advance for Congressman Carter and we will also have the Q&A feature during the webinar.
Earl L. “Buddy” Carter is an experienced businessman, health care professional and faithful public servant. As the owner of Carter’s Pharmacy, Inc., South Georgians have trusted Buddy with their most valuable assets: their health, lives and families for more than thirty years. While running his business, he learned how to balance a budget and create jobs. He also saw firsthand the devastating impacts of government overregulation which drives his commitment to ensuring that the federal government creates policies to empower business instead of increasing burdens on America’s job creators.
A committed public servant, Buddy previously served as the Mayor of Pooler, Georgia and in the Georgia General Assembly where he used his business experience to make government more efficient and responsive to the people. Buddy is serving his third term in the United States House of Representatives and is a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. As the only pharmacist serving in Congress, Buddy is the co-chair of the Community Pharmacy Caucus and is dedicated to working towards a health care system that provides more choices, less costs and better services. As the representative of the entire coast of Georgia, he is also a member of the Select Committee on Climate Change.
A lifelong resident of the First District, Buddy was born and raised in Port Wentworth, Georgia and is a proud graduate of Young Harris College and the University of Georgia where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy. Buddy married his college sweetheart, Amy, 40 years ago. Buddy and Amy now reside in Pooler, Georgia and have three sons, three daughters-in-law and four grandchildren.
