Peach State Freightliner dealer principal Rick Reynolds provided U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) with a tour of its dealership in Jefferson, Ga., this week.

This was the first opportunity for Rep. Collins, a first-term member of Congress who represents northeast Georgia, to visit a truck dealership in his district.

The highlights included meeting employees and learning more about the dealership’s investment in locations across Georgia and Alabama.

The dealership walk-through included policy discussions about possible tax reform, increasing costs of healthcare, higher costs of new trucks due to new EPA emissions mandates and the need to grow and expand small businesses.
