New 12th District Transportation Board Member
Thursday, 19 February 2009
February 19--  State Representative Bobby Parham, D-Milledgeville, was elected Thursday to the State Transportation Board by a caucus of state representatives and senators from the 12th Congressional District.  He will fill the remaining four years of the term of retiring Board member Raybon Anderson.

Representative Parham is one of the Georgia General Assembly’s most revered members, having served in the House of Representatives for 18 terms, covering the past 36 years.  Prior to that tenure, he served on the Baldwin County Commission for six years.e will He

“I really didn’t make up my mind to run until this morning,” Rep. Parham said.  “I’ve always been interested in improving transportation; I recall coming to the Department as a county commissioner to see what assistance we might get for Baldwin County.  I just decided that I can do more, not just for my county or legislative district, but for the entire 12th Congressional District and all of Georgia by serving on the Transportation Board.  I’m thankful to my colleagues from the 12th District for the confidence they’ve shown in me.  I’m going to work hard to justify that confidence.”

Representative Parham, a pharmacist who serves on the Rules, Appropriations and Motor Vehicles committees, will resign from the House and begin his Board tenure immediately
