Press ReleaseApril 22, 2021

“The Georgia law makes it easy to vote and hard to cheat”- JCN President Alfredo Ortiz

On Tuesday, April 20, the Job Creators Network (JCN) sent a letter to James Quincey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Coca-Cola Company, regarding his openness to productive conversation regarding GA’s voting laws, while also inviting him to discuss further with JCN. To read JCN’s letter, click here.

“The Job Creators Network (JCN), the small business advocacy group I run, remains extremely disappointed that corporations and CEOs are engaging in ‘woke politics’ that are far removed from the mission of their businesses,” Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, wrote in the letter.

“Leaders of major American companies and organizations—you among them—have a responsibility to verify the truth, rather than simply echo unfounded accusations. Let me share with you the facts. Despite urban legend and your previous statement, the Georgia law makes it easy to vote and hard to cheat. It shouldn’t be controversial… Business centers like Atlanta are majority African-American, and “protesting” the whole state only pulls their jobs and small businesses out from under their feet. I would appreciate the opportunity to talk further about this issue with you and discuss how to best help the people of Georgia.”
