Rep Regina Quick Appointed As Superior Court Judge

In a move that has been telegraphed for months, State Representative Regina Quick (R-Athens) has been appointed as a Superior Court Judge by Governor Nathan Deal. Quick has previously indicated she would not be running for re-election, setting up a Republican primary between former State Rep Doug McKillip and Houston Gaines (thus far).  The seat will be heavily contested by Democrats as well in November.

It appears the official announcement about the judgeship will be made tomorrow, but we have the following Facebook post from Rep Mandi Ballinger (R-Canton) as the next best thing for confirmation this is a done deal:

Congratulations to Judge Quick.

Special election since we still have another year before 2018?

A most excellent choice by Governor Deal. Rep. Quick is one of the smartest people I know and she’ll make an outstanding Judge.
