Duluth, GA – On November 15, 2016, the District Attorneys’ Association of Georgia (DAAG) recognized Representative Chuck Efstration for his leadership during the 2015-2016 Session of the Georgia General Assembly. Efstration was presented with the award during the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Gwinnett County. Efstration currently serves as a member of several House committees including Appropriations, Defense & Veterans Affairs, and the House Juvenile Justice Committee.
“I am honored by this recognition and appreciate the opportunity to work on these important issues as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives,” said Efstration. “I would like to thank both the District Attorneys and members of law enforcement who work each day to keep Georgians safe.”
“Rep. Efstration is one of the hardest working members of the Georgia General Assembly,” said Chuck Spahos, Executive Director for the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council. “His tireless efforts during his relatively short time at the Capitol have proven invaluable.”
Since 2013, Efstration has authored no less than eight bills that have since been signed into law including House Bill 328 and House Bill 770. House Bill 328, also known as the Criminal Justice Reform Act, was a true consensus bill of all interested parties which further enhanced the way criminal justice is administered in Georgia. House Bill 770 clarified that predators that sexually exploit the developmentally disabled can now be charged criminally with Human Trafficking. The bill also enhances law enforcement’s ability to target traffickers through undercover operations.
“Gwinnett County is very proud of Efstration,” said Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter. “He is a consensus builder who has proven both his leadership abilities and willingness to work across party lines to pass legislation that best serves the citizens of Georgia.”
Efstration is a long-time resident of Gwinnett County. He was elected to represent House District 104, which includes Dacula, Lawrenceville, Auburn, Braselton and Bethlehem, in 2013. Prior to his election to the Georgia House, Efstration served as an assistant district attorney and Chairman of the Gwinnett County Republican Party. Efstration is a graduate of the University of Georgia School of Public and International Affairs, and he earned his Juris Doctor from Mercer Law School. He owns a small business law firm in the Lawrenceville area. Efstration married his wife, Ashley, in 2014.
