AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio spoke with State Representative Barbara Massey Reece on Tuesday who is currently in Atlanta at the Georgia General Assembly.  AM 1180 asked Ms. Reece if she was planning to run for re-election for the post she has held as state representative for the past 12 years.

Ms. Reece said "qualifying is not until April….but the Good Lord willing I plan to seek another term."  Reece has served six terms in the General Assembly representing Chattooga County and a large portion of the rural areas of Floyd Counties.  Ms. Reece sits on several important committees in the Georgia House including Education, Science & Technology, State Institutions & Property and Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment – a committee that will be very important for our area with the 2010 Census coming up this year.

Having retired from teaching in the spring of 1998, Representative Reece was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives and resides on the family farm in Menlo.
