New Bipartisan Leadership in the Cobb County Legislative Delegation!
Lawmakers elected a bipartisan slate to lead the delegation this session.
State Rep. Teri Anulewicz, D-Smyrna, will serve as chair, while
Rep. Devan Seabaugh, R-Marietta, will be vice chair.
Sen. Michael “Doc” Rhett will serve as secretary.
Those posts were adopted by acclamation on the recommendation of state
Sen. Ed Setzler, R-Acworth.
In previous years, leadership has traditionally been made up by the majority party of the delegation — state Rep. David Wilkerson, D-Powder Springs, said he couldn't recall a member of the minority party (within the delegation) being named vice chair.
Democrats continue to hold a one-vote majority among the 20-member delegation, which includes 14 state representatives and six state senators.
