Georgian nominated for TVA Board.

According to Senator Isakson’s weekly e-newsletter…

This week President Bush nominated Thomas Gilliland of Blairsville, Ga., to serve on the board of directors of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The TVA delivers power to some 123,000 households in northern Georgia, but no Georgian before Mr. Gilliland has ever been nominated to serve on the TVA board. The president nominated Mr. Gilliland to fill the vacancy created when Bill Baxter resigned from the board in January.

    Southern Co. puts more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than any other U.S. utility.

    excerpt:

    “Its Scherer plant near Macon, Ga., for several years has been the nation’s single largest source of the greenhouse gas”

  2. Ernest Norsworthy says:

    So Georgia will after 74 years get a seat at the federal TVA table. That is if the Senate oks Thomas Gilliland
