District 24 state Rep. Mike Dudgeon recently announced his bid for re-election to Georgia’s House of Representatives.
“It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Forsyth County in the legislature, and I am excited about taking my experience back for a second term under the Gold Dome,” Dudgeon said. “My background in technology and education has enabled me to work at the forefront of many of the major issues that face my fellow Georgians.”
Dudgeon is a member of the House education committee and vice chair of the academic achievement subcommittee. He also is a member of the energy, utility and telecommunications committee and the science and technology committee.
Dudgeon, who served as an active participant in tax reform bills in 2011 and the recent session, passed three bills in his freshman year.
“I hope during a second term to be able to work on even more conservative legislation, including further tax reform, deregulation, and repeals,” he said. “We already have too many laws, and I want to get rid of them where I can.”
Dudgeon, currently serving District 24, will seek his second term in the recently created District 25. The change is mostly in the number, as the new seat represents most of his old district and includes parts of Johns Creek.
“I hate to lose my constituents in west Forsyth, on the lake, and in the Windermere and Chattahoochee River Club neighborhoods, but I am excited to pick up parts of north Fulton where I go to church and help lead my sons in Boy Scouts,” Dudgeon said.
Dudgeon lives in south Forsyth with his wife of almost 20 years, Lori, and sons Brandon, 17, Matthew, 14, and Daniel, 12.
When not at the Gold Dome, he is vice president for research at Hi-Rez Studios in Alpharetta.
