Bio

Senator Chuck Hufstetler, Senator Chuck Hufstetler, a Republican, was elected to the State Senate for Georgia's 52nd District in 2012. Sen. Hufstetler represents all of Floyd County along with the majority of Bartow and Gordon and part of Chattooga county.

Sen. Hufstetler serves as the Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, Vice Chair of the Retirement Committee, and as a member of the Higher Education and Health and Human Services Committees. He is also an ex-officio member of the Appropriations Committee.

Sen. Hufstetler was elected to the Floyd County Board of Commissioners in 1998. As Commissioner, he led the way to cut taxes six times, trimmed the waste of the government by analyzing every expenditure of each department and eliminated the debt for the first time in modern history of the county. The county received their first ever "AA" bond rating during his tenure when he served as Finance Chair. They eliminated all general fund borrowing and accumulated the highest rainy day fund balance in history. He was also the negotiator with the Atlanta Braves to bring the minor league team to Rome in 2002. He was one of two in charge of construction of the Rome Braves Stadium. The stadium was built on time, under budget and completely paid for in one year. As a strong fiscal conservative, he was re-elected to the board in 2002 and elected as Chairman in 2003 and 2004.

Professionally, Sen. Hufstetler worked 14 years as a corporate manager for Welch Foods and Earthgrains in New York, Texas, and California. In 1994, he returned to Rome to buy a long-time Floyd County establishment, Paul's Oyster Bar in the Coosa area.

In 2006, Sen. Hufstetler pursued a life-long passion by enrolling in Emory School of Medicine to become an anesthetist. After graduating, he began providing anesthesia to patients at Redmond Regional Hospital where he currently still works. He also works as an Adjunct Professor at Emory University School of Medicine. He earned a double major in Biology and Psychology from the University of Georgia, a degree from the American Institute of Baking and a master's in medical science in Anesthesiology from the Emory School of Medicine.

Sen. Hufstetler is married to the former Joan Bojo and together they have three children- Caleb, an MBA graduate and Investment Advisor, Dr. Schell Hufstetler McCrory, a Health Policy Analyst at the CDC, and Rebeckah, a senior physics major at the University of Georgia.
