CHICKAMAUGA — James magazine, a leading publication on Georgia politics, has selected state Sen. Jeff Mullis, R-Chickamauga, as its 2013 “Legislator of the Year.”
The announcement was made in the magazine’s annual edition of the most influential Georgians.
“I am humbled and honored to be recognized,” Mullis said.
Mullis — who chairs the powerful Senate Rules Committee — represents Senate District 53, which includes all of Catoosa, Walker and Dade counties and most of Chattooga County.
He was chosen by the magazine for his “work to improve statewide transportation infrastructure, and commitment to creating sound public policy for Georgia.”
