Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp recently announced 17 appointments to Georgia’s Sexual Offender Registration Review Board and the Georgia Joint Defense Commission, and Medical Association of Georgia member and Georgia Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, M.D., is one of the appointments to the Georgia Joint Defense Commission.

“I am both honored and humbled to be given this opportunity to represent our state’s military and defense installations, as we work to promote the best interests of those who tirelessly serve us,” says Sen. Kirkpatrick. “This commission recognizes the invaluable contributions of our service men and women in fostering security, whereas Dobbins in particular serves as a hub for leadership and excellence. I am proud to represent a base that has such a profound impact on Cobb County, as well as the entire metro area. I look forward to working with my colleagues to protect this, and our other important Georgia military bases.”

The Georgia Joint Defense Commission was created in 2018 as a result of S.B. 395 to promote the “long-term viability and development” of the state’s active and civilian military infrastructure.
