Congressman Austin Scott made a stop in Jones County last week to share information and answer questions from his constituents.

Scott has been the U.S. eepresentative for Georgia’s 8th congressional district since 2011, and he will continue to represent the district for at least two more years because he is not opposed in the November election.

The Aug. 6 meeting was hosted by Tri-County EMC and was held in its community room. Scott was introduced by Greg Mullis, senior vice president and vice president of energy services at Tri-County. The congressman opened the session with a statement.

He said he had been traveling around the state meeting people since early morning and he admitted to being as frustrated as everyone else with what was going on in the country. He commented that he was opposed to America being involved in Syria.

“As a country, if we are going to get involved, we need to be committed to finish the job,” he said.

Scott said military personnel serving the past 10 years have spent six and seven tours of duty in the Middle East because the country has remained at war.
