Chattooga County’s Republicans heard from Floyd County Commissioner Eddie Lumsden on Saturday morning in a breakfast meeting at Pop’s Restaurant in Summerville. Lumsden is seeking the House Representative’s position currently held by Barbara Massey Reece, a Democrat from Menlo. This will be Lumsden’s second attempt at the seat having been defeated by Reece in 2004.
Lumsden said that as a member of the majority party in the House of Representatives he would be in a better position to get things done for the people of the 12th House District, which includes all of Chattooga County and a large portion of rural Floyd County. AM 1180’s Julie Steele will have more from the Saturday meeting coming up on Monday in local newscast on AM 1180.
