Just days after winning re-election for his state senate seat, Senator Jesse Stone announced via his Facebook page that he has withdrawn his name for Burke County State Court Judge. He wrote,
The letter below was hand delivered to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal shortly after my re-election to the State Senate. I felt that I should share this with my constituents, friends, and supporters. As promised, I formally withdrew my name from consideration to fill the vacancy of the State Court of Burke County. I was very honored to have been nominated by numerous people in the community.
You might recall his ‘He loves his Senate seat, he loves his Senate seat not‘ debacle back in March when no one could figure out what he actually wanted to do. But for now, he will stay where he is…because November 4th.
Below is a screenshot of his letter from his Facebook page.
