Badon Will Not Run For Reelection
State House Representative Bobby Badon says he will not run this fall for reelection to his seat in District 39. Badon says the expansion of his business and farming interests have left him with little time to represent his constituents properly. He takes credit for more than $17-million in state-funded projects in the district over the last four years. You may remember Badon was arrested in January 2010 for a DWI, but that charge was thrown out earlier this year. He doesn't say whether that incident played a role in his decision.
