River bridge dedicated to Parham

MILLEDGEVILLE —

The Georgia House recognized Bobby Parham during a visit back to the state capitol, where he served Baldwin County for 35 years before being elected to the Department of Transportation.

State Rep. Rusty Kidd (I-Milledgeville), Baldwin County Sheriff Bill Massee and others commended Parham with a resolution dedicating a bridge in his honor. The bridge on East Hancock Street and Ga. 24 over the Oconee River is now known as the Bobby Parham Bridge.

Parham has long been recognized by the citizens of the state for the vital role he played in leadership and his personal commitment to the welfare of Georgia citizens, according to the resolution. He served as a Baldwin County commissioner before election into the Georgia House of Representatives. He served in this capacity from 1974 until retirement in 2009. The experienced politician served on the House Committees on Appropriations, Rules and Health & Ecology, as well as chairperson for the Transportation Committee.
