ATLANTA – State Rep. Angela Moore paid tribute to former State Rep. Pam Stephenson, who previously served House District 90, through a morning order on the House floor and resolution presentation on March 25.
In the spirit of Women’s History Month, Moore honored the life achievements and public service of Stephenson, commending Stephenson’s work as a female Georgia legislator, who served from 2005 until Sept. 4, 2020, and her work with the Fulton DeKalb Hospital Authority (FDHA).
Moore said she is seeking to partner with the FDHA in identifying an appropriate Grady Health Systems site to dedicate in Stephenson’s honor.
“Pamela was my mentor and my friend, and in her service, she understood the connection to the people in the district, as well the needs of the people in the state of Georgia,” said Rep. Moore. “She understood how important it is to have a state healthcare system for the people. I am overjoyed to honor Pamela’s service to the state and proud to fill her seat. Pamela served with dignity, heartfelt-intention and dedication. I have a lovely pair of shoes to fill.”
After Stephenson withdrew her candidacy for House District 90 due to illness, Moore was elected to fill the seat during a special election run-off on March 9, 2021.
House District 90 includes portions of DeKalb, Rockdale and Henry counties. Moore currently serves on the Creative Arts & Entertainment, Code Revision and Higher Education committees.
