Peachtree City Mayor Logsdon Joins Georgia Insurance Commissioner Race

Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon wants to be Georgia insurance commissioner.

According to his Web site, Logsdon made his announcement over the weekend at the Fayette County Republican breakfast in Fayetteville.

“I believe that life is not about self, but about service to others.While I have enjoyed my time as mayor of Peachtree City, I knew about mid-way through my term as mayor that I wanted to serve on the state level,” he said.

Logsdon, a former BellSouth executive who also has served in the millitary, has served three years as Peachtree City’s Mayor.

The mayor is not alone in the race for the post, which is being vacated by John Oxendine, who is running for governor.

State Senator Seth Harp, also a Republican, has announced he will seek the job.

Also, Mary Squires, a former Democratic state lawmaker who now lobbies for the self-insurance industry, is also running.
