"I ran for Senate on the promise to use my business experience and conservative values to put the hardworking folks in our district first – ahead of Atlanta and the special interests," Said Billy Hickman. "In my first term I fought to lower taxes, cut red tape, improve public safety, protect innocent life, increase access to rural broadband, and give parents a voice in their child's education. We need more unapologetic conservatives in the legislature to stand up for our values and that is why I am running for re-election."
Billy Hickman, was elected to the Georgia Senate in a special election in 2020 to represent District 4, which includes Bulloch, Candler Effingham and Evans Counties, and parts of Emanuel and Tattnall Counties.
