Former Milledgeville Mayor Floyd Griffin said Thursday he plans to run for the District 145 seat in the Georgia House of Representatives.
Griffin, a retired U.S. Army colonel, served in the state Senate four years before leaving the post to run for lieutenant governor. After that, Griffin was elected mayor of Milledgeville and served a four-year term. He ran for mayor again last year, finishing a close second in a runoff.
The District 145 seat is currently held by Independent Rusty Kidd of Milledgeville. Kidd is expected to seek re-election.
Qualifying for General Assembly seats is scheduled next month. Griffin, 71, said there are a few things he has to consider before making a final decision. But he said he definitely intends to seek the position.
