Is This How Georgia Lawmakers Trim The Budget?

Is this how Georgia lawmakers trim the budget? All I heard in the last election was how Republicans and Tea Party candidates were against big government and were going to stop spending money…well, as usual, that was a bunch of baloney.

While school districts across the state are trying to figure out how to pay teachers, firing teachers, and raising local property taxes, these 35 state senators voted to create a job for a fellow senator who was turning out to be an embarrassment to everyone (including the governor) and pay him $150,000 for doing next to very little. That cushy salary is about three times what most veteran journalists employed by Georgia Public Broadcasting are paid for doing the same type work.

My state senator Josh McKoon voted for it and he will get an e-mail from me…it probably won’t do any good, but  he will know how I feel about this incredibly wrong move made by the governor and the rest of the lawmakers who participated in the ploy.

If you want to read more about what the bimbos are doing under the Golden Dome, visit Better Georgia. And don’t get all ruffled because they mostly write about Republican lawmakers — that’s all that is up there in the ATL!!!

Don’t take this stuff without making some noise and don’t be confused by blind allegiance: this is wrong.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I teach...media writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.

  1. Thank you Pam, on top of it as usual, even if some don’t care to hear it.
