Jeffares to serve another term in Sen.

State Sen. Rick Jeffares, R-Locust Grove, will serve another term as state senator in District 17 after a victory over Democrat Nelva Lee on Tuesday with 46,776 votes to Lee's 27,757.

"I'm proud that people voted for me," Jeffares said. "I will try to do the right thing and try to be as conservative as I can be. I'm glad to be reelected and proud to work for the people."

Jeffares said over his first two years, he showed that he could be a strong conservative voice and will continue in his future term.

"I feel like I went up there my first two years and voted very conservative and reduced the budget of the state, and I feel proud to represent the 17th district," Jeffares said.

Jeffares is the president and owner of J&T Environmental Services, a firm that helps small cities and counties with their water and sewer needs, in addition to serving as a project manager for engineering firm Ben Turnipseed Engineers.

Lee is the founder and owner of Medical Interpreting and Translating Institute Online, an online certification program designed to provide the skills necessary to become a professional medical interpreter.
