Rick Jeffares to Resign from State Senate – “All-In” for Lt. Governor Race

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Monday, December 4th, 2017

State Senator and candidate for Lt. Governor Rick Jeffares announced his resignation from the state senate seat to focus 100% on his campaign for Lt. Governor.

“Georgia faces big challenges in cutting tuition costs, expanding technical education and getting value out of our taxpayer dollars and I am going to focus 100% on addressing these challenges as Lt. Governor and as a candidate,” Jeffares said.  “This campaign has taken off more quickly than I expected and there are so many requests to hear our message and exchange ideas that I can’t imagine being able to do this while still representing my district the way my constituents deserve.”

“I’m excited about Georgia’s future and believe that our citizens deserve a full-time candidate for the full-time job of Lt. Governor,” Rick added. “The 17th district also deserves full-time representation, and Brian Strickland has my full faith and endorsement.”
