Scott Holcomb Sworn In as Representative for Georgia House District 82


ATLANTA, GA—January 20th, 2011. Last Monday, January 10th, Atlanta attorney and military veteran Scott Holcomb was sworn in as the new Representative for Georgia House District 82, representing parts of the Tucker, Northlake, Pleasantdale, Evansdale, North Briarcliff, and Embry Hills communities. "It's an honor to be serving in the General Assembly. I take the responsibility very seriously, and I am going to work very hard to help my district and Georgia confront their most pressing challenges. I intend to fight for economic security, educational opportunity, and individual freedom."

The start of the legislative session was severely impacted by the inclement weather that made Atlanta's roadways treacherous for most of last week. Representative Holcomb attended the swearing in ceremony, Governor Deal's inauguration, and the State of the State Address. Regarding the State of the State, Representative Holcomb said, "I was pleased to hear Governor Deal focus on education and promise to end teacher furloughs. I support him on that."

Representative Holcomb lives in the Northlake area with his wife Kathleen and their son Carter. More information can be found at
