Richardson: No Fighting Necessary For Next GDOT Board Pick

Georgia House Speaker Glenn Richardson says that he is hopeful that a date to elect a new GDOT Board Member will soon be here, as the Gainesville Times reports.

“He (Cagle) and I have both had busy travel schedules,” Richardson said. “When the session ends, we have the pent-up demand from everybody. So, we’ve both been gone, but our chiefs of staff have been talking.”

But will there be a consensus candidate this time?

“Good gracious alive, I hope so,” Richardson said. “But they haven’t risen up yet. It seems to me that there is a dozen people that want the job. That’s good for competition, but I hope there is a consensus candidate that comes forward, and maybe that group can pick one.”
