TO COMMEND THE HONORABLE ROBERT A. BARBER, JR., OF CHARLESTON FOR HIS EXEMPLARY SERVICE AS A MEMBER OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE OCCASION OF HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE HOUSE AND TO WISH HIM THE VERY BEST IN ALL HIS FUTURE ENDEAVORS.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly have learned with deep regret that the Honorable Robert A. Barber, Jr., a member of the House of Representatives from Charleston County representing House District 115, has indicated that it is his intention not to offer for reelection to the House of Representatives in order to seek election to Congress; and
Whereas, Robert Barber first began his service in the House in 1989, and during his tenure as a member of the General Assembly he has represented the citizens of his district and the citizens of Charleston County and the State of South Carolina with distinction; and
Whereas, his experience as a lawyer and as a businessman has enabled him to be an effective voice on the Ways and Means Committee where he presently serves as well as on the Judiciary Committee where he previously served; and
Whereas, he has also been instrumental in helping to develop a sound energy policy for South Carolina and presently serves on the Southern States Energy Board Executive Committee, the Energy Committee of the National Conference of State Legislatures, and as Chairman of the Joint Legislative Committee on Energy; and
Whereas, he also has been an influential member of the Charleston County Legislative Delegation serving as its Roads and Bridges Chairman from 1989-94, Chairman of the Budget Review Committee from 1991-94; and currently as the Delegation's Legislative Liaison to the Charleston County School Board; and
Whereas, Robert Barber, while serving as Chairman of the Roads and Bridges Committee, diligently worked to resolve transportation problems in Charleston County, and his efforts have benefited those living in the county through improved roads, bridges, and drainage; and
Whereas, he is also widely known in Charleston as the proprietor of the unique and charming Bowens Island Restaurant near Folly Beach, and it is with considerable sadness that the members of the General Assembly shall say goodbye to one of its most delightful members at the end of the 1994 session; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly thank Robert Barber on behalf of the people of his district and the people of Charleston County and the State of South Carolina for all he has done to make state government an effective instrument for helping the citizens of this State upon the occasion of his retirement from the South Carolina House of Representatives. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby commend the Honorable Robert A. Barber, Jr., of Charleston for his exemplary service as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives upon the occasion of his retirement from the House and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Honorable Robert A. Barber, Jr.
