Charlie Bethel was raised in Northwest Georgia and is proud to represent his home community in the State Senate. After earning his business and law degrees from the University of Georgia, Charlie served as a law clerk in the U.S District Court for the Northern District of Georgia for Judge Charles A. Pannell before returning home to Northwest Georgia. Charlie has worked as a practicing attorney and spent over a decade in the flooring industry working for J&J Industries. Today, Charlie has a professional practice dedicated to mediation and conflict resolution.
Although many of the issues Senator Bethel deals with effect the entire state, his focus is always on Northwest Georgia. A champion for both the working men and women of Northwest Georgia and our manufacturing industry, Charlie has passed legislation expanding workers compensation benefits for those injured at work and advocated consistently for policies to support manufacturing, mining, and agriculture.
Along with these issues of particular importance to Northwest Georgia, Charlie takes great pride in being able to help his constituents with the unique problems and obstacles they face in obtaining needed services from state government.
