Sims ready for second term

May 23, 2006 

Albany-- After what she calls a great first term, District 151's current state representative says she's ready to take on Atlanta again.

Tuesday night, supporters of Freddie Powell-Sims helped kick-off her re-election campaign. Sims served 30 years in the Dougherty County school system before entering politics. She says lawmakers need to improve education, health care and economic development.

Sims says she's ready to continue providing a voice for South Georgia.

"Southwest Georgia must have a strong voice in Atlanta, someone to say we have needs, we have concerns and to address those needs and concerns," says Sims.

Sims will soon begin an aggressive campaign to knock on doors and hear voters' concerns. She'll face the man she defeated two years ago, former Representative Lawrence Roberts in the July Primary.
