Since Tommy Irvin is probably in his last term, a tipster wonders, and now so do I, if Irvin is trying to annoint his own successor.

Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin has appointed Terry Coleman of Eastman as Deputy Commissioner at the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

Coleman served in the Georgia House of Representatives including serving as Speaker of the House for the 2003-2004 Legislative Session. He began working at the Department of Agriculture as a consultant in January assisting with the Department’s programs and budgets.

    of course coleman is not exactly a spring chicken himself is he?? but his dodge county roots do seem agriculturish…

    Terry Coleman is a consumer lawyer- no Ag roots at all

    We have kicked this mans ass before- it will be no different when he is running for Commissioner

    Gary Black 2010

  3. drjay says:

    well no ag roots other than he is now the deputy ag commissioner–and was apparently “consulting” w/ the dept. before that…

    I’m pulling this scenario out of thin air, but here it goes: Irvin retires and Terry Coleman switches parties, runs as a Republican and Irvin still backs him out of spite for Gary.

    I would figure ole TI is just thumbing his nose at the current administration by hiring a stalwart of his party to blatantly show who is in charge at the State Ag office.

    Tommy Irvin is.

    Dinosaur or whatever other names people call him, so be it, he’s still in charge.

    What ya’ll oughta be asking is what Coleman was being paid to “consult” on.

    There’s surely some results of whatever he was doing.
