Atlanta, GA, July 15, 2022: Narender Reddy has been reappointed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) for another term of 5 years. Reddy won the recent Republican Primary runoff election and will be facing the democratic nominee in the November 8th general election to the State House District 50, Johns Creek.
Initially appointed by then Governor Sonny Perdue in 2003, he was reappointed by Governor Nathan Deal and Kemp. This is his fifth successive reappointment to the Board of GRTA.
“I sincerely thank Governor Brian Kemp for this continued opportunity to serve our State of Georgia,” Reddy said through an email statement.
In June, Reddy won a historic but narrow 12-vote victory against his Republican opponent Betsy Kramer in the runoff election to Georgia State House District 50.
Reddy garnered 935 votes against Kramer’s 923, out of a total 1858 votes cast. Interestingly, the two candidates both tallied at 577 election day votes. The 12-vote difference was in advance and absentee by mail votes—Kramer secured 331 advance voting votes against Reddy’s 345 votes, and 15 absentee votes against Reddy’s 13.
Reddy will take on Dr. Michelle Au, the Democratic candidate, in November.
Reddy is a lifelong businessman and entrepreneur with experience in banking, finance, and real estate. He earned his M.B.A. from the University of Evansville, Indiana. He is a 35-year resident of Georgia, having been appointed by both Governor Sonny Perdue and Governor Nathan Deal to serve as a Board member of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA). As a GRTA board member, Reddy actively works to help Georgia communities with transportation.
He is the owner and President of Sterling Realty Services, Inc., a commercial real estate firm, and was a Founding Director of Quantum National Bank where he used his experience in real estate to ensure successful loan screening of applicants.
Reddy is the father of two grown children, both of whom graduated from Woodward Academy in North Fulton. Both of his children are medical doctors today.
