Greene seeking re-election


Rep Greene Rep Greene State Representative Gerald Greene has announced he will run for re-election for state representative in District 151. Greene has served 36 years in the Georgia legislature and is the chairman of the State Properties Committee.

Earlier this year, Greene was attacked by the Atlanta organization, Georgia Engaged, an organization which utilizes dark money” or secret funding to send inaccurate and defamatory mailers about candidates in swing districts.

The Nov. 6 general election will be a match between Greene and Joyce Barlow, who refers to herself as a “spokesperson” for southwest Georgia.

The winner of the Nov. 6 contest will take office in January of 2019.
