State Senator Jeff Mullis who represents Chattooga, Walker, Dade and Catoosa Counties in the Georgia State Senate is happy with the selection of fellow Republican David Ralston as the new speaker of the Georgia House:

“The first day of session was a great victory, not just for the House of Representatives, but for the General Assembly and the citizens of Georgia as Representative David Ralston was overwhelming elected as the 84th Speaker of the House.  Speaker Ralston is a man of integrity and good character.  He is a proven leader who will continue to help move Georgia forward.  My colleagues in the Senate and the Northwest Georgia Delegation look forward to working with him on the critical issues that are facing this great state of ours.”
