Congressman David Scott represents Georgia’s 13th district. The district can roughly be thought of as the area of metro Atlanta outside of the perimeter from 4:00-11:00 if the perimeter is the clock face. There are a lot of zigs and zags, particularly in the southeast portion of Scott’s district, but it is generally southwest metro Atlanta.

On the most perimeter adjacent portions of the district, it is quite urban, or at least suburban, like in Smyrna, College Park or Stockbridge. But by the time you reach the “outer” – or furthest from the perimeter – parts of the district, it is definitively rural, Lovejoy, Chattahoochee Hills, Palmetto. That rural section though is just close enough to Atlanta however that the pressures of development are quite great and threaten to radically change the lifestyles, economy and culture of those that live in those places.
