All 6 Georgia State Representatives whose districts overlap John’s 17th Senate District, including the Senior Hawk, Rep John Lunsford.

Additionally, a number of County Commissioners across the other counties of the district have endorsed Douglas’ reelection.

The Mayor of Locust Grove, Mayor Lorene Lindsey. She is the 6th of 9 Mayors in the District to endorse John, along with the Mayors of Social Circle, Walnut Grove, Porterdale, Newborn, and Mansfield.

    Douglas is a good man and deserves the support he is getting. I’ve appreciated his strong stand for our Guard and Reserve guys. Glad things are positive for him so far. Crotts is a good man too, but we don’t need to waste energy and money when our currently elected guy is doing such a good job. I hope Crotts will find some place else to serve.

    Am I a prophet or what??? UGA Wins (The SEC) 2005!!! 🙂

    Back to politics: The momentum seems to be with Douglas. As Tater said, he deserves the support he is getting. I am told the Chairman of the Henry County GOP publically calls him “Iron Man” at their meetings because of the pace he sets around the district.

    Meanwhile, Crotts says “a hundred people” have asked him to run. So far, no word on who those hundred are, or where they are. From my distant vantage point, Douglas seems to be right where he should be at this point.

    Word is Crotts is getting cold feet. May not be in this race after seeing the support going to Douglas.

    Douglas’ website says he is a graduate of North Georgia College and State University. That makes sense since he was a career Army Officer.
