Steffen to Run for Bordeaux's Seat

A week after Georgia Rep. Tom Bordeaux (D-Dist. 162) announced he was not running for reelection, another Democrat has stepped up to run for his seat in the Georgia House. Chatham County Democratic Committee member Joe Steffen says he wants to represent the 162nd District of Georgia.

He made his announcement at the Liberty City Community Center yesterday. Steffen says Bordeaux's shoes will be hard to fill, but thinks he can make a difference.

"I like to believe there is a good solution offered from all sides, and having someone who can listen to all sides," he said. "I think I am a consensus-building type of person."

He plans on focusing on healthcare for children, seniors and the uninsured.

The district includes much of Ardsley Park, Liberty City and other midtown neighborhoods.
