Respondent does not meet the residency requirements to qualify as a candidate for State Senate District 1. Respondent reported his cousin’s home address in Savannah as his own.  In rebuttal, three neighbors testified that they had never seen Respondent or his vehicle at the Savannah address. In addition, Respondent never paid taxes, owned property, or had a residential lease in Georgia.  He is, however, does have a residential rental agreement for a home in South Carolina.  As Respondent is not a legal resident of Georgia and is not an elector of the county of residence, he may not run for state office.
