Valdosta - After 18 years of serving Lowndes County, State Rep. Ron Borders retires.

Borders, who served on the Valdosta City Council for 10 years, was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1998.

Among his accomplishments are his roles in creating the sales tax holiday and the HOPE scholarship.  "I accomplished a great deal, pretty much all I wanted to accomplish. And the children are getting to the age, one is a junior in high school and one is a sophomore, and I thought I'd better spend some time at home and let someone else represent the people for a while. So it was just time to come home," Borders said.

Borders will officially retire the first week of January.
