You read stuff like this and you have to question the maturity of the House leadership.
A political campaign to oust state Department of Transportation board members who defied Speaker Glenn Richardson in selecting the new DOT commissioner could delay DOT reforms that are desperately needed, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle said Thursday.
The DOT board selected Gena Abraham, then head of the Georgia Building Authority, by a one-vote margin in October to clean house. She was put forth by Gov. Sonny Perdue and supported by Cagle. Her main opponent was Rep. Vance Smith (R-Pine Mountain), chairman of the House Transportation Committee and Richardson’s choice.
