Our scrutiny of elected officials is not based on personal political views or preferences but on our responsibility to make sure Georgians know what their leaders are doing and how their tax money is spent. As a team of professionals, we hold each other accountable for being evenhanded and fair.
The core Statehouse group is directed by James Salzer, a Capitol veteran and expert on the state budget and taxes. Maya T. Prabhu covers the state Senate, with a focus on hot-button issues such as abortion and guns. Mark Niesse covers the state House and specializes in elections and voting issues. Greg Bluestein covers the governor and state politics, including campaigns for state and federal offices. Patricia Murphy, our political columnist, provides perspective and commentary. David Wickert is our expert on transportation; Ariel Hart reports on health care, Ty Tagami on public education. Jim Denery edits and writes our weekly Capitol Recap column. Isaac Sabetai creates digital features. Several additional reporters follow specific bills and issues. Bob Andres is the lead photographer covering the session.
