Deal Announces Judicial Appointment

On May 5, Gov. Nathan Deal announced the appointments of Dustin W. Hightower to a Superior Court judgeship within the Coweta Judicial Circuit. The appointment will take effect upon swearing in.

As most of you know, Dusty has been a very staunch supporter of GeorgiaCarry.Org and the Second Amendment.  He has made many great speeches both in committee meetings as well as from the well of the House floor.  He also worked behind the scenes to help us secure good legislation.  We owe a debt of gratitude to Dusty for his untiring efforts in protecting our rights.

Dusty reports he expects to be sworn in some time in June and that he and his family are excited to begin a new journey. While we will miss his support in the House of Representatives, we congratulate him on his appointment and wish him well in the future.

According to Newstalk 1330 WLBB in Carrolton, GA this morning, GCO’s first Legislator of the Year (2008), Tim Bearden will be seeking his old House Seat (District 68) when Dusty officially vacates the position. Tim preceded Dusty as the House Representative for District 68 having held office for 7 years from 2005 to 2011. Tim vacated this position upon his appointment in 2012 by Gov. Deal to be the Director of the GA Public Safety Training Center, a position he held for 3 years before resigning to return to private industry.

Tim has always felt he could serve the citizens best with conservative policy to grow Georgia economically while protecting their Constitutional rights, and it appears he is taking steps to fulfill his calling.
