Press Release from the Teilhet Campaign.

He is a former president of the DeKalb Lawyer’s Association, a board member of the DeKalb Bar Association, and is the President-Elect of the Georgia Association of Solicitor-Generals.

“Rob Teilhet understands that investing in children from the start can go a long to preventing criminal behavior down the road,” said Solicitor James. “And there is no other candidate who will work harder to protect our children from abuse, sexual predators and exploitation.”

“I am honored to receive the support of Solicitor James. He has an outstanding of record of prosecuting abuse and fighting for justice. His work, particularly his efforts to protect the children in his county, is an inspiration to me,” said Representative Teilhet. “I look forward to working with him to create a safer and more just Georgia.”

Teilhet’s campaign for Attorney General focuses on protecting Georgia’s children, crime prevention, ethics in government, and consumer protection. Teilhet is widely known as a champion in the General Assembly for protecting Georgians from rip-offs and con artists. He has been a reliable supporter of law enforcement and crime victims as a member of the House Judiciary Committee. Teilhet has also consistently fought for stronger ethics laws.
