Former State Rep. Rich Starts Parole Board Career
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former state Rep. Barrett Rich is starting a new career in public service as a member of the Tennessee Board of Parole.
Haslam announced the appointment of the Somerville Republican to the board in August, but it couldn't take effect until after the Nov. 4 general election, when Rich's term in the Legislature officially ended.
He was elected in 2008 to represent the 94th District. A native of Fayette County, Rich is a former member of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
His appointment to the Parole Board is effective from November 5, 2014 through December 31, 2019.
