Lee County --  A Lee County Representative is the Georgia Public Health Association's Legislator of the Year.

State Representative Ed Rynders was presented a plaque Tuesday on behalf of the Georgia Public Health Association. Rynders says he joined the House study Committee on the Public Health System so south Georgia's needs would be represented.

"Being that we're in the ninth poorest congressional district, southwest Georgia is, it's important that what we do is be able to provide affordable health access to the people that can't afford it, and I think any time we can take proactive measures to ensure that we've got quality health care. That's important, and I'm glad we were able to do that."

Rynders shares the award with four other legislators on the committee. This is the first time Rynders has received this type of honor.
