Chairman's Corner - Remembering Babe Byrne

Monday, April 06, 2020 7:27 PM | Anonymous

In Nov. 2010, I got my notice that I had passed the Georgia Bar exam, but a couple days later lost my election for State House district 37 by a narrow margin 53/47%.

With the craziness leading up to the election, I had copied down the wrong day for my law school class’s swearing in and missed it.

I needed to find a judge to swear me in, and nearly a month later, it hadn’t happened. So, I called up Babe Byrne who almost immediately got me before her boss, Judge Kreeger the day before my 35th birthday. You don’t get to practice until a judge swears you in and for me, that wouldn’t have happened without Babe Byrne making it so. On Dec. 10, 2010, I started on my new career.

No other members of my family were there for this occasion, but Babe was.

Thank you  Babe Byrne  for being part of one of the most important days of my life. 

Bill Byrne , I know I share the sentiments of our members who have known you and Babe for years that you and the family are in all of our thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you all.

Yours in Freedom,


Jason Shepherd

Chairman, Cobb County Republican Party
