Bulloch resigns state Senate seat

ATLANTA — State Sen. John Bulloch, R-Ochlocknee, on Thursday announced his resignation from the District 11 Georgia Senate seat.

“It has been an honor to serve District 11 as a Georgia state senator since 2003,” Bulloch said. “I’d like to thank all of my constituents, colleagues and staff for their support during my years at the Gold Dome.”

However, Bulloch said, no one deserves more appreciation and recognition than his wife and family.

“Their unconditional love and encouragement was a constant reminder of the reason why I ran for this office — because I wanted to create a better and brighter future for this state,” Bulloch said in a release from the state Senate press office.

“As a farmer by trade, it has been a special privilege to serve as chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs committee,” Bulloch said. “Very few farmers get chances like this, and I am grateful for the opportunity to play a pivotal role in strengthening Georgia’s ag industry.”

Bulloch said he looks forward to spending more time with his family “and sharing the wealth of fond memories and life lessons collected during my time in the Georgia Senate.”
