I received an email from the Gary Black campaign for Ag Commissioner, where he outlines his plan for what Black wants to do in office. Now, I am not here to critique this plan, and I am not even necessarily endorsing Gary Black over Kemp; however, when I see a detailed plan such as this, it makes me wonder what the other side is, and what kind of plan his opponent is suggesting. So, I went back to Brian Kemp’s site, and after I got around all the nice macromedia flash stuff, this is what I found.
I will have to say that in comparing the two plans, Black presents a few more quality suggestions.
One of the key things that really struck me when looking at this, is that I was reading a detailed plan for Ag Commissioner. Now, I am sure there are many farmers in GA that are interested in what the Ag Commissioner does, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say that offices such as Governor, Lt. Governor, Sec of State, and Attorney General are the type of positions where a detailed plan just might come in handy.
I have seen Casey Cagle’s plan. I guess we have seen Sonny’s plan to an extent from his first term, but what about the next 4 years. The point is: shouldn’t there be some more discussion and debate on what these candidates are specifically planning to do if elected, rather than the same ole stuff? What is Ralph Reed going to do as Lt. Governor besides spend a significant amount of time defending his actions before a Senate Sub-Committee? I just mentioned Republicans here, but what are Mark Taylor or Cathy Cox planning to do for Georgians? What about Greg Hecht?
I can read their websites, but c’mon, folks – I would really like to hear some substance! You too, Dems!
