Ralston qualifies for House District 7

Georgia House Speaker David Ralston has qualified to run for re-election in House District 7. The Republican Primary is May 22.

“Serving as House District 7’s voice in the Georgia General Assembly is an honor and responsibility I hold dear,” said Ralston. “Representing the best interests of north Georgia remains my number one priority.

“In the State House, we passed comprehensive tax reform that will empower job creators, spur economic growth and keep more money in the pockets of Georgia taxpayers. Thanks to
President Trump and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we delivered the largest tax cut in modern Georgia history.”

Ralston is proud of the work of the House Rural Development Council.

“I created it to keep District 7 — and our entire state growing — (and) to identify the problems facing communities outside of metro Atlanta and prescribe legislative solutions for growth and prosperity,” he said. “We have already passed several of the committee’s recommendations and have a long-term commitment to the success and vitality of rural Georgia.

“While I am proud of what we have accomplished at the State Capitol and throughout District 7, I am seeking re-election to continue fighting for Gilmer, Fannin and Dawson County families. With the continued support of local voters, we can keep our community strong and our future bright.”

Ralston is the 73rd Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives, a position he has held since 2010.

He was first elected to the House in 2002, and represents House District 7, which includes Fannin and Gilmer counties and a portion of Dawson County.
