Carlton Colwell and Eric Holmes on Politics and Lobbying, Reflections on Georgia Politics
From Russell Library
Carlton Colwell ran a successful campaign for the Georgia House of Representatives in 1964. He represented several North Georgia mountain counties for thirty years. Colwell served on various committees, including Appropriations, Ways and Means, and Fiscal Affairs. He served as chairman of the State Institution and Property Committee, and oversaw the prison system in Georgia. In the early 1980s Colwell helped rewrite the Georgia Constitution as a member of the Constitutional Revision commission. In this interview, Colwell and Eric Holmes discuss lobbying's role in politics from the perspectives of both the lobbyist and the legislator.
