That didn’t take long. Less than 24 hours after Rep. Matt Ramsey of Peachtree City announced he would not seek another term representing the 72nd House District, former Peachtree City mayor Harold Logsdon tossed his hat into the race to replace him. In statement, Logsdon said,
We need proven conservative leadership to succeed Rep. Ramsey in our state’s capitol, and I’m confident my 38 years with the National Guard, 36 years with BellSouth, and full-term as Mayor of Peachtree City will enable us to achieve conservative legislative success. Rep. Ramsey will be a tough act to follow; he’s done an exceptional job while in office. However, I believe I am up to the challenge to represent the 72nd District.
There are many issues facing Georgians, including education reform, transportation, taxes and the budget — just to name a few. I am confident I bring the experience to face the challenges.
Logsdon was elected mayor of Peachtree City in 2005. The Republican and his wife Ann have two daughters and seven grandchildren.
