Sen. Warnock returns to Savannah, talks investment in infrastructure


Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock made a three-stop tour of facilities in the Savannah area on Thursday where he spoke about the importance of investing in infrastructure and his support for the American Jobs Plan and the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act.

Warnock visited Georgia Ports Authority, the Seapoint Industrial Complex and the headquarters of JCB manufacturing in Pooler, all of which he pointed to as examples of crucial private sector businesses in the state. He said supporting state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to creating and retaining clean-energy job opportunities across Georgia is one of his top priorities as a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

“As we’re coming out of this pandemic and looking to the future, what better time than now to invest in America? America needs a home improvement project. One that will lay out for all our people a vision of the work that we can do together, and a future that is worthy of all our children,” Warnock said. “The American Jobs Plan is a major step in that right direction.”

Warnock took a tour through the Five Hives and Vines facility at Seapoint Industrial Complex, a site built less than 100 yards from a solar power array, atop the former City of Savannah Deptford Landfill.

“What we need is vision and innovation, and that’s what the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act is all about. It’s about investing in our R&D,” Warnock said. “It’s the creative, out-of-the-box solutions that marry public and private for the sake of building the kind of industrial future that can sustain the high-wage jobs of the future.”

“I’m a proud Savannahian. It’s always good to be back here at home, and my hometown has always led our state, and our nation, really, in innovative infrastructure and logistics advancements,” Warnock said. “Seapoint is an excellent example of this.”
