The News Press Division is charged with the responsibility of public relations for the Governor's Office. Activities which facilitate this mission include: (1) preparation of press releases and coordination of relations with the news media, (2) planning and execution of the Governor's news conferences, (3) audio recording and transcribing of the Governor's news conferences and speeches, (4) preparation of drafts, notes, background data and supporting materials for the Governor's speeches, and (5) monitoring public opinion and reaction. The records of this series are used to supply various items of information to the public, to document office operations, to maintain records of correspondence and keep up to date information on topics of interest to the Governor. Because different Administrations tend to keep the same type records in different offices over the years, it will be necessary to refer to other subĀ­ groups and series for additional material that is basically the same as found in this series. For instance, additional correspondence of the Governor to citizens of Georgia and the outside, can be found in RGSGSERIES 1 - 1 - 5, Governor's Incoming Correspondence. Also see RGSGSERIES 1 - 1 - 45, Governor's Speech Files. In RGSGSERIES 1 - 7 - 67, Legal Division Subject Files, can also be found additional Executive Orders. In RGSGSERIES 1 - 10 - 122, Governor's Speech and Press Conference Audio Tape Files, there are audio tape recordings of the Governor's speeches, press conferences and various other topics.
