Scott Holcomb Selected as One of Nation's Top Pro-Growth Progressive Leaders

The New Deal

Today, Georgia State Representative Scott Holcomb was selected as one of eleven rising leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL, a national network that is committed to highlighting innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives.

Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland and U.S. Senator Mark Begich of Alaska, Honorary Chairs of the NewDEAL, recognized Representative Holcomb's efforts to attract better jobs to Georgia by allowing entrepreneurs to register their companies as Benefit Corporations so they can create profits that expand opportunity for others in their communities.

"Senator Begich and I have joined the NewDEAL because we believe we need to look for fresh ideas not just from the top down in Washington, but also from the bottom up, where innovative leaders like Scott Holcomb are developing and testing their ideas out on the ground," said Governor O'Malley, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL.

"In communities throughout the country, rising state and local leaders such as Scott Holcomb are proving that you can be both pro-growth and progressive. The NewDEAL is designed to foster these types of ideas and these types of leaders," said Senator Begich, Honorary Co-Chair of the NewDEAL.

"I am proud to be recognized by the NewDEAL for my work to make Georgia more economically competitive," said Representative Holcomb. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share ideas with the other NewDEAL Leaders to learn what is working across the nation."

Holcomb is currently featured on the NewDEAL's interactive website at He joins State House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams and State Senator Jason Carter as the third NewDEAL Leader from Georgia.
