“Our area strongly supported Governor-Elect Kemp. I feel certain my selection is more a reflection of Governor-Elect Kemp’s commitment to our area than it is a reflection of me. I am honored to be chosen to serve our governor, our district, and our state in this capacity,” State Sen. Tillery said.

“I am proud to announce a team of devoted public servants who will work around the clock to keep Georgia moving in the right direction,” said Governor-elect Kemp. “By advancing legislation that empowers job creators, enhances educational outcomes, lowers healthcare premiums, strengthens rural communities, and keeps our classrooms safe, we will ensure a bright and promising future for our state. Together, we will put hardworking Georgians first.”

Governor’s administration floor leaders are chosen by the governor to carry his or her legislation in the State Senate or House, respectively.

Sen. Blake Tillery represents the 19th Senate District, which includes Appling, Jeff Davis, Long, Montgomery, Telfair, Toombs, Treutlen, Wayne, and Wheeler counties and a portion of Liberty and Tattnall counties.  He can be reached at 404-656-0089 or by email at
