Bordeaux Calling It Quits

Longtime Georgia Rep. Tom Bordeaux (D-Dist. 162) says he is not running for reelection. The 16-year-veteran of the Georgia House of Representatives made the announcement this afternoon in Savannah. Bordeaux, an eight-term Democrat and dean of the Chatham County Legislative Delegation, says he wants to spend more time with his family, and a ninth term is not in his plans.

"It breaks my heart to say it, but after 16 years, I can no longer do what I need to do," he said. "I want to be a good father, a good husband and a good legislator, and I can't do it all."

Bordeaux took office in 1981. He plans on helping in the Cathy Cox for governor campaign.
