Delvis Dutton is a Christian conservative Republican running for State Representative in District 157 The district serves Evans, Tattnall and a portion of Wayne counties.
Delvis was born in Glennville to Brenda Kicklighter Dutton (now Tuck) and Jerry Dutton. While he spent a few short years in Gwinnett County during grade school, Delvis finished his education at Pinewood Christian Academy in Bellville and attended Georgia Southern University. He split his time between school and working as a UPS driver for Bulloch, Evans, and Tattnall counties.
In 2001, Delvis started his own well drilling company, General Pump & Well. For more than a decade, General Pump & Well serviced more than twenty counties in southeast Georgia. Not long after, Delvis married Danielle (Harrell), a public school teacher in Long County. They now have two children, Bryson, 10, and Carrington, 8.
Delvis served in the State House in 2010 and the district covered Tattnall, Evans, and Liberty counties, but the district has since changed. Following the 2010 U.S. Census the seat exchanged Liberty County for a portion of Wayne County. In 2014, Delvis finished his term in the State House and ran for Georgia’s 12th Congressional district in an attempt to carry the ‘Appeal to Heaven’ movement to D.C. While the bid was unsuccessful, the year following allowed Delvis to travel to 29 states to advocate for a return to federalism in state legislatures.
In 2015, Delvis joined two partners to launch AllOnGeorgia.com, an online news organization dedicated to transparency in government and fact-based real time information. The site has launched in more than 40 counties across Georgia where smaller communities are seeing a free flow of unbiased information. He currently works as the Market Development Director and oversees day-to-day operations of the organization.
