Atlanta, GA – State Representative John Lunsford (R-Henry) has decided to step aside rather than run for State Senate District 17 or seek re-election in House District 110.

            “I have loved my 10 years in the General Assembly, and I am proud of our many accomplishments,” Lunsford stated.  “However, at the end of a long and difficult session, I have decided that it is time for me to refocus on my business and spend more time helping my wife raise our four young children.”

            Five candidates have qualified to run in both the 17th Senate District and the 110th House District.  Primaries will be held July 20th.

            “I would like to thank people of Georgia for giving me the chance to serve them; as I have said, it has been the highest honor of my professional career,” Lunsford concluded.  “While I am not ruling out any political run in the future, for now, the right thing for me and my family is to step aside and allow someone else to carry the torch.”
