The Savannah Chamber Weekly Digest
Everything You Need to Know From the Chamber

August 16, 2021

Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce


The Savannah area business community is saddened to learn of the passing of Representative Mickey Stephens over the weekend. Stephens was first elected in 2002. After serving one term through 2004, Stephens returned to hold the seat for House District 165, encompassing much of east Savannah, from January 2009 until his recent passing.

Before serving in the Georgia House of Representatives, Stephens served as an educator for 32 years teaching at Savannah High and coaching student athletes in basketball, football, track, and field. As a legislator, Mickey Stephens strongly backed measures intended to lower the school dropout rate and advocated for improved vocational and technical education.

Rep. Stephens was a frequent face at the Chamber’s legislative events like Eggs & Issues and Savannah Chatham Day. He will be greatly missed as an advocate for Savannah and Chatham County. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family.
