Brian Kemp, running for Ag Commissioner, has come out swinging against Tommy Irvin.
Said Kemp, “Every Georgia family is feeling the impact of Hurricane Katrina and thankfully Governor Perdue is acting aggressively to implement tax cuts to help us weather this spike in gas prices and to do all he can to investigate price gouging on gasoline. I strongly support Governor Perdue’s efforts. But they beg the question of what is Tommy Irvin doing, especially during this holiday weekend?”
“Taking a few phone calls and issuing statements is not enough! The Agriculture Department has a staff of investigators who could be on the front lines statewide investigating charges of price gouging and insuring the Georgia’s consumers are protected during this difficult time.”
