Pursuant to O.C.G.A. Section 28-3-20(b), I am today announcing the appointment of William L. Reilly as Clerk of the Georgia House of Representatives.
Mr. Reilly’s appointment will be effective August 16, 2013 and he will serve the remainder of the unexpired term of Robert E. Rivers, Jr.
Bill Reilly has served as General Counsel in the Speaker’s Office since January, 2010. A member of the State Bar of Georgia since 1983, he has also served as a Juvenile Court Judge in the Appalachian Judicial Circuit.
I have complete confidence that the high standards we have come to expect from the clerk’s office will continue.
