Valdosta - Community leaders in Lowndes County hope their agenda might make it to Capitol Hill.

Ten members from the Chamber of Commerce and business leaders spent last week meeting with Congressman Jack Kingston and Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isaacson.

They spent three days in meetings pushing topics like immigration, small business incentives and alternative energy.

"We realize that it's very important to the community, small businesses and all businesses in Georgia. We do realize we've got to start looking for alternatives for energy solutions for the future," says Chamber Board Member Teri Lupo.

The trip is an annual event to put the county on the national radar and help secure federal money and support for area projects.
