Angela Speir, the self-described “people’s commissioner” on the Georgia Public Service Commission, will not run for re-election this fall, Speir said Thursday.
“I feel called to serve in a different way,” Speir said. “I want to help people and I want to work in an organization where the goals are compatible with that.”
I call her the barometer because if you ever wanted to gauge the strength of the GOP vote in a precinct all you’ve had to do these past four years is see what Angela Speir’s share of the vote was. She ran a campaign with virtually zero funding and zero statewide regular appearances, yet she was able to win.
