Glenn Richardson has nothing to worry about

I agree with this.

The small group of mostly back-bench Republicans plotting to unseat House Speaker Glenn Richardson recognize the perils of their quest, but say the time is ripe for change. Rep. David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, is leading the charge, with the public backing so far of just a handful of rank-and-file colleagues.

Leadership challenges rarely succeed because, like all conspiracies, they require uniform cooperation. Yet anyone participating in such a coup is inherently independent.

    Davis Ralston better keep HIS NOSE CLEAN! He needs to work with the Gilmer County Law Enforcement to clean up the vast amounts of Meth being produced in Ellijay! Shall we turn the narc dogs loose up on the Coosawattee River?

  2. Brian from Ellijay says:

    Meth is a problem that expands far beyond the problems of Gilmer County, the 7th house district, or N. Georgia. I am sure there are many drug problems down in Smyrna too, glass houses Peach, glass houses. But why do you blame a certain individual, it is a problem that needs to be rectified, not anyone one persons fault other than maybe the drug dealers.

  3. DoubleDawg3 says:

    You’re right Brian. Besides, if Ralston were our AG right now, who’s to say that he might not be pushing some of the nation’s toughest meth laws and programs to curb the first time users. He can’t do a whole lot about meth as just one state rep.

    I don’t really understand how anyone in this state could not favor having anyone other than Glenn Richardson in the Speaker’s seat.

    I hope Ralston cleans his clock…I’m not sure that it’ll happen, especially since he’s not going to push it at the start of session (when a Dem-Rep. joint effort could easily oust Richardson), but I wish him the best of luck in trying.
