Regina Quick To Challenge Rep. Doug McKillip in Republican Primary
The Athens attorney wants to unite the community, she says.
Athens attorney Regina Quick is tossing her hat—in her case, her briefcase—into the race for the Georgia House, challenging Republican incumbent Doug McKillip in what will be the new District 117.
This district takes in parts of Oconee, Jackson, Barrow and Clarke counties, including the street off Timothy Road where Quick lives.
She decided to run, she said, because “I finally concluded that we need a representative who can unite Athens instead of divide it.”
A native of Cullman, Alabama, Quick came to Athens in 1984 to attend law school at the University of Georgia. After graduating in 1987, she began practicing law in Athens.
She is primarily a family law practitioner. Quick serves on the executive committee of the state family law section.
She couldn't name her campaign manager, she said, because she's still talking to people in Jackson and Barrow counties, but she hopes to have that position filled by Sunday. Athens CPA Angela Meltzer will serve as campaign treasurer.
