The State House of Representatives District 24 seat, vacant due to the resignation of Rep. Mark Hamilton, includes much of Cumming and most of western Forsyth County. Forsyth is one of Georgia’s fastest-growing and most solidly Republican counties, so it is no surprise that four GOP candidates have announced for the June 16 special election. (Last year the district averaged 83% support for GOP statewide candidates— 80% for Sen. David Perdue and 79% for Gov. Nathan Deal.)
The candidates are attorney Ethan Underwood, a partner at Miles Hansford & Tallant; attorney David Van Sant of Van Sant Law; insurance agent Will Kremer (a former chairman of the Georgia College Republicans); and Lanier Tech teacher Sheri Smallwood Gilligan.
