ABSTRACT
An interview with Sam Olens, attorney general of Georgia, is presented. When asked about his campaign from Atlanta to urban Georgia and how he managed to serve the public, he gives relevance over showing care and understanding for the constituents. He says he had the opportunity to learn a lot from the office at the time of the transition from Thurbert Baker. He highlights his legislative agenda that Baker has seldom did, where he will be taking a proactive approach with the legislature.
