Jeff Mullis named 2012 Walker County Citizen of Year
Jeff Mullis was named the 2012 Walker County Citizen of the Year by the Walker County Chamber of Commerce at the 30th annual Walker County Gala on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Chattanooga Marriott Hotel at the Convention Center.
The 2011 Walker County Citizen of the Year, Nelda Parrish, presented the award in honor of Mullis’ dedication to many community, civic and religious organizations.
Growing up in Chickamauga, Mullis’ parents taught him at a very early age how to be active in and give back to his community. They encouraged him to be the man he is today and their influences can still be seen in his life.
After being a local fireman for many years he was elected in November 2000 as a senator in the Georgia General Assembly. Sen. Mullis is serving his sixth two-year term in this capacity, representing the 53rd District. He is always helping constituents, businesses, and community leaders on state and federal issues whether in Atlanta or Walker County.
He currently chairs the Senate Music Committee and the Halls of Fame Joint Committee, and serves as chairman emeritus of the Sportsman Caucus, whose mission is to promote hunting, fishing and the Second Amendment.
