State Representative Tyrone Brooks (D-Atlanta) is considering retirement from office. Rep. Brooks, who was first elected in 1980, currently serves on 3 committees, namely, Economic Development & Tourism, Governmental Affairs and Retirement.
While Rep. Brooks’s publicist claims that Rep. Brooks will be resigning, Rep. Brooks insists that he intends on completing his term. On the other hand, if Rep. Brooks ends up moving to Monroe and decides to resign before the end of his term, a special election will be held in Georgia’s 55th House District.
On another note, Rep. Brooks also has a trial coming up this April after being indicted on 30 criminal counts of fraud just 2 years ago.
