We are shocked and saddened by the passing of Georgia House Speaker David Ralston. His impact and legacy in our great state will be felt for generations to come. For us, he was more than a statewide figure. He was our 7th district representative, which he never forgot. He was a leader, friend, and mentor who was always willing to help our county party efforts. He loved our North Georgia Mountains and worked tirelessly to ensure long neglected opportunities for prosperity reached Appalachia. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Our prayers are with his wife Sheree, his children, extended family, and the thousands of North Georgians who called him a friend.
