In the aftermath of the recently completed 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank my fellow attorney, state Sen. Jesse Stone, who represents Burke, Columbia, Emanuel, Glascock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Johnson, McDuffie, Richmond, Screven and Warren counties.
Sen. Stone’s acceptance of the professional and personal sacrifices that go along with serving in public office is inspiring to, and appreciated by, his fellow members of the State Bar of Georgia. The commendable efforts of Sen. Stone and other lawyer/legislators to shape public policy and make Georgia a better state serve to promote the cause of justice, uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all citizens.
