Local political candidate Will Wade has been named to the Georgia Coronavirus Task Force Economic Impact Committee by Gov. Brian Kemp.

On Friday, Kemp announced dozens of appointments to four Coronavirus Task Force Committees: the Economic Impact Committee, Primary Care Provider Committee, Emergency Preparedness Committee, and Committee for the Homeless and Displaced.

"In February, we formed the Coronavirus Task Force with a focus on preparing for COVID-19 and its effects," Kemp said in a press release Friday. "Now, as we mitigate the spread of the virus, these committees will address the specific impacts that COVID-19 will have on communities, industry sectors, our healthcare system, and emergency preparedness. I have full confidence in these committees to serve the needs of all Georgians during this challenging time. In the weeks ahead, we will continue to ensure that our state stands ready for any scenario."

Following the announcement Wade said that he was honored to have the chance to use his experience in banking to help people and small businesses in this time of need.

“It’s what I helped do locally during the Great Recession and I’m ready to do it again,” Wade said. “My prayer is that we all remain calm, collected and willing to make a few short-term adjustments so that this will pass quickly.”
