Governor Sonny Perdue has appointed Rep. Jim Cole of Forsyth (District 125) to serve as senior administration floor leader in the Georgia House of Representatives. Cole, who represents a portion of Lamar County, takes over the role from Rep. Rich Golick who resigned his floor leader position to take the chairmanship of the judiciary non-civil committee in the House. ’Jim is an honest, hardworking legislator who has earned the respect of his fellow House members,’ Perdue said. ‘While he is a fierce advocate for his district, he is also a statesman who understands the need to look at issues from a statewide point of view. I am proud to have Rep. Cole represent this administration in the House of Representatives.’ ’I can’t express how honored I am to take over the senior role in the floor leader’s office,’ Rep. Cole said. ‘Governor Perdue is a great leader and has taught me valuable lessons in how to govern this state from a long-term perspective. That perspective is to make Georgia a great place for our future generations to live, work and raise a family. I look forward to the challenge of advancing his vision and agenda,’ Cole said.
