Ga. parole board re-elects chairman, vice chairman

ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles has re-elected its chairman and vice chairman for another fiscal year.

Chairman Albert Murray and Vice Chairman Terry Barnard will serve in their leadership roles for the agency through June 30, 2014.

Murray says he's honored and humbled to be re-elected by his colleagues. He has served on the board since being appointed in May 2010. Prior to serving on the parole board Murray was commissioner of the state Department of Juvenile Justice.

Barnard joined the board in May 2010 after nearly sixteen years as a state legislator.

Parole Board Members are full-time employees of the agency, appointed by the governor to 7-year, staggered terms.
