Senator Rick Jeffares Growing up right here the 17th District, I learned the importance of family, hard work and always doing the right thing. These are the values I plan to take to the state capitol as your next State Senator.

As a small business owner, husband and proud father, I understand what is truly important to our community. I believe by working together we can continue to make Georgia even better for our children’s future. If I can ever be of service, please feel free to contact me and I look forward to serving you and your family.
