GPPF got high marks in a Georgia magazine's poll of its readership (mostly business leaders and politicians). From a press release:
The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is ranked No. 1 for highest integrity and No. 3 for most knowledgeable among the state's associations or business organizations in the November-December issue of James magazine, which is sent to Georgia politicians and business leaders.
The Foundation is an independent think tank that proposes practical, market-oriented approaches to public policy to improve the lives of Georgians.
"The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is not thought of as a governmental affairs group in the traditional sense, but its influence is enormous, as evidenced by its top placement in the Highest Integrity category," the magazine reports. The survey listed the top 15 in each category.
The magazine, published by Insider Advantage and named after Georgia's founder, James Oglethorpe, touts an insider's view of state politics. Ahead of the Foundation on "knowledgeable" were the Medical Association of Georgia (1) and the Soft Drink Association (2).
I'm glad to see a conservative public policy voice in the state so well regarded. Very encouraging.
