On Tuesday, governor-elect Brian Kemp will address lawmakers for the first time in a major speech at a conference in Athens.  

But some legislators aren’t ready to accept Kemp as Georgia’s next governor.


State representative Renitta Shannon of Decatur, who is also a member of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, is part of a small group of lawmakers who will boycott the speech.
