North Fulton representatives introduce Milton legislation

By Rachel Kellogg 

Last week, the 10 legislators representing north Fulton cities that hope to establish Milton County introduced separate resolutions seeking to re-create previously existing counties in Georgia.

District 50 State Rep. Lynne Riley, R-Johns Creek, said the resolutions introduced into the 2011 legislative session are all worded exactly the same, but she said the separate resolutions make a statement.

?It?s a strong message about how passionate and committed we are to re-creating Milton County,? she said. ?We?re united in our desire to bring about smaller government.?

The other nine representatives who introduced the same bill are District 56 State Sen. John Albers, R-Roswell, District 48 State Sen. David Shafer, R-Johns Creek, District 32 State Sen. Judson Hill, R-Marietta, District 48 State Rep. Harry Geisinger, R-Roswell, District 47 State Rep. Chuck Martin, R-Alpharetta, District 49 State Rep. Wendell Willard, R-Sandy Springs, District 52 State Rep. Joe Wilkinson, R-Sandy Springs, District 51 State Rep. Tom Rice, R-Norcross and House Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones, R-Milton.

All representatives have signed their names to all applicable Milton County resolutions, creating what Riley calls ?10 voices singing in one chorus.?

With HR 29, HR 30, HR 31, HR 32, HR 33, HR 34, HR 35, SR 16, SR 17 and SR 18 on the table, Riley said it will be up to committees to determine if all or any of the 10 resolutions make it to the floor to be heard.

Riley said she remains optimistic about passing Milton County, saying she has been educating residents and other representatives about the benefits of reducing the size of government.

?Smaller government is always better,? she said.
