Congressman John Barrow is currently serving his fourth term representing Georgia’s 12th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He has established himself as an independent voice for Georgia families. In Congress, John has promoted fiscally conservative policies, and repeatedly called for a more bipartisan approach to governing for Georgia’s families. n 1990, he was elected to the Athens-Clarke County Commission, where he served for 14 years. In 2004, John was elected to represent Georgia’s 12thCongressional District in Congress. The partisan Georgia Legislature has twice moved the borders of the 12th District trying to unseat John, but the voters from Athens to Augusta to Savannah to Dublin and Douglas know a good man and every two years vote to send him back to Washington.
