State representative seeks re-election

July 16, 2006

Albany -- The state House of Representatives District 151 race is on, and today incumbent Freddie Powell Sims shares why she is best qualified to serve.

Sims has served as state representative for two years and has signed on several successful pieces of legislation. She says she is proud she helped support a bill giving police officers retirement packages.

And she says she is ready to represent the 45-thousand people in the district at the state level, and make a change for the better."I've spent quite a bit of time connecting with my constituents. Their concerns resonate with me everyday, especially with education, economic development, and transportation, which happen to be the committees that I serve on," said State Representative Freddie Powell Sims.

Sims' opponent Lawrence Roberts was recently sued by Divine and Dorough Law Firm for a bad real estate deal. Roberts was found in breech of contract and ordered to pay more than 100-thousand dollars to the company and another 9-thousand in attorney fees.
