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

Issue Can Wait, Williams Says

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.
