A state lawmaker who represents south Forsyth recently visited a group of Vietnam veterans.

District 25 state Rep. Todd Jones talked about how he takes a business approach to his work as a member of the Georgia General Assembly at the May meeting for the Cumming Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America.

Jones, an executive president in the software industry who is serving his first term as a legislator, told attendees he wants to help “lead Georgia toward the third industrial revolution, which he sees being built upon leading edge industries such as automotive vehicles and 3-D printing,” said Marty Farrell, a spokesman for the veterans group.

The legislator said Georgia’s economic growth potential is “virtually limitless” with the right leadership, Farrell said, and that the Republican lawmaker “sees no reason why Georgia cannot build upon its four main drivers of gross domestic product — the Fortune 500 companies headquartered here, the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, the Port of Savannah and the large number of military installations and personnel based in the state.”
