Oconee County Democrats Offer District Attorney Gonzalez Opportunity To Respond To Legislation Introduced In General Assembly

***Also Discusses Criticism In Media***

The dissension that has surrounded Democrat Deborah Gonzalez since she forced and then won an election for district attorney for the Western Judicial Circuit consisting of Oconee and Clarke counties in 2020 has intensified in recent weeks.

At the beginning of the current legislative session, Rep. Houston Gaines and Sen. Bill Cowsert, who represent Oconee County in the Georgia General Assembly, co-sponsored bills that would create an oversight committee to monitor the work of district attorneys. Each bill now has received a positive vote in the respective chamber.
