Dewayne Hill won reelection as Georgia representative for District 3 in the June 9 general primary. He faces no opposition for the general election in November.

“Someone commented to me after the election,” says Hill, “that my win and that of Senator Mullis was a win for Catoosa County. That meant a lot to me.”

Hill says he is grateful and humbled by the support he experienced and impressed with how poll workers managed on election day in light of all the challenges resulting from COVID-19.

“The legislature goes back into session on Monday (June 15),” says Hill. “We have a lot of work to do on the budget. The governor has reduced the overall budget cuts he wants from 14% to 12%, but there is a lot to figure out.”

Hill says there are officially 11 days left in the session, but that number can be adjusted up or down as needed to finish business.
