Rep. Mark Hargrove takes oath of office

Mark Hargrove, representative of the 47th District, was sworn in Jan. 14 to serve his second, two-year term in the Legislature. He will continue his duty as assistant ranking Republican on the House Transportation Committee and will take a place on the House Education and Higher Education committees.

“It’s truly an honor to serve the people of the 47th District again as their state representative,” said Hargrove. “I made some headway on education reforms during my first term in office and look forward to finding more ways to better serve our students in the education system.”

Hargrove added that transportation issues will also be at the forefront of the session.

“As the assistant ranking member on transportation issues, I would welcome constituent feedback on the many elements we will be debating as we work to fund critical infrastructure projects that keep people and goods moving on our state highways and roads,” Hargrove said. “Of the greatest concern to my district is Highway 167, particularly the interchange at Highway 405. How we restructure the number of lanes and that merge point will be a discussion on which I will take a lead role.”
