Parole board elects chairman, vice chair | savannahnow.com

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles has elected Terry Barnard as chairman beginning July 1.

James Mills was elected vice chairman.

“You’ve actually placed on me today the highest honor that a member of this board might ever hope to achieve, the honor of being elected your chairman,” Barnard said. “I know that this position (being chairman) does not come through succession. So it’s indeed a very high honor.”

Barnard said the board has made many changes to improve since 2010 and applauded the leadership of the previous two board members who served as chairman. He noted the board’s success since his appointment in 2010 to include a parole success rate that is currently at 74% and remains more than 20% higher than the national average.
