Oconee County’s Representatives to Georgia House Not In Full Agreement On Redistricting

Oconee County Rep. Regina Quick said she has asked legislative counsel to draft a bill restoring Oconee County to a single district in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Oconee County Rep. Regina Quick said she has asked legislative counsel to draft a bill restoring Oconee County to a single district in the Georgia House of Representatives, but it appears leadership of the House, not its members, will decide if the legislation even gets a hearing.

Oconee County Rep. Chuck Williams told me on Tuesday he will not support Quick’s initiative without approval of House leadership. If both representatives do not agree, the legislation is almost certain to die without action.

“I will support Regina’s efforts to the point I can,” Williams said in a telephone conversation. “But if it becomes obvious leadership is opposed, I will not jeopardize my standing with leadership.”

Both Quick, with whom I spoke by telephone on Monday, and Williams told me it is their intent to meet with House Speaker David Ralston and other House leaders shortly after the General Assembly opens its session on Monday to discuss redistricting.
