Nashville, Tennessee -- A former state representative is beginning a new career in public service as a Board Member at the Tennessee Board of Parole. Gov. Bill Haslam announced the appointment of Barrett Rich to the Board in August, but it could only take effect after Rich’s term in the legislature ended on November 4.
Board Chairman Richard Montgomery said, “We are pleased to welcome Mr. Rich to the Board of Parole. His commitment to the people of Tennessee is evidenced through his prior experience in public service. I am confident he will make a positive contribution to the work of this agency.”
