To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to express congratulations and thanks to Rockdale Judicial Circuit District Attorney Richard R. Read on his recently announced decision to step aside from that post at the end of this year.
During his 30 years in the legal profession, Mr. Read has served as district attorney since 1999 and previously as chief assistant district attorney in Rockdale County from 1992 through 1996.
Mr. Read’s fellow members of the State Bar of Georgia are appreciative of his dedicated service to the public and the justice system. As he prepares to re-enter the private practice of law, we wish him well in the years ahead.
Brian D. “Buck” Rogers
President, State Bar of Georgia
