Steve Farrow, who served in the state Senate with now-Gov. Sonny Perdue, won election to the state Transportation Board Thursday.
Farrow on Thursday told his legislators he will report to them. “You are my boss, and that’s the way I will look on this job,” he said. In an interview afterward, he said that, though he will seek the governor’s input, his boss is the Legislature, not the governor.
Farrrow, of Dalton, was a state senator from 1993 to 1996. He is now a lawyer whose work includes defending medical malpractice cases, he said, and he has represented hospitals, insurance companies and governments. He also served on the state ethics commission.
