Regina Quick, unopposed on the Nov. 6 ballot in the newly created 117th House District, says she is waiting on advice from the Oconee County Board of Commissioners before moving forward on her campaign promise to try to re-unite Oconee County in a single House district.
“If they make the request, I’ll do everything in my power to make that change,” Quick said yesterday. She was referring to the members of the Commission.
“I think I need some clear direction,” she said. “I don’t want to overstep.”
BOC Chairman Melvin Davis spoke against partitioning the county before the House passed its redistricting bill, but he was cautious about revisiting the issue when I spoke with him by telephone today.
The issue could come up at a Nov. 14 session county leaders have scheduled with the county's legislative delegation. Davis said he hopes to have time at the end of that meeting for citizens to speak.
