David Stover, who won the runoff for the Georgia House District 71 seat, will be sworn in on Monday.
The election results were certified Wednesday. Stover won with just over 60 percent of the vote against Thomas Crymes, or 1,356 to 885 votes. The two were the top vote getters in a special election Feb. 5.
In the regular general election, Robert Stokely won but withdrew after being appointed a magistrate judge.
Stover was up at the Georgia Capitol building Thursday getting organized.
“I’ve got my office and parking,” he said. “Just getting all the housekeeping things done.”
“Right now I’m sitting on the floor watching the activities,” he added.
Stover will be sworn on the House floor in the well by a judge at 9 a.m. Monday.
Stover won 10 of 11 precincts in Coweta County and one of two precincts in Fayette County.
