I understand Pete’s point and in large part I agree with him. The GOP should not cater to big business but we should be in favor of creating an environment where all businesses can thrive. Too often big business wants to use government to crush competition and enrich themselves. And yes, this is a big part of the issues we’re dealing with in the State House.
That being said please allow me a moment to stick up for Brett Harrell, whom I consider a friend. Brett has been a city councilman, Mayor, led a CID and been active in his community for a long, long time. When he was elected Mayor of Snellville, he toppled a 26 year incumbent and cleaned up the kleptocracy that inhabited Snellville’s government. He doesn’t need issues force fed to him because he’s been a part of solving issues in Snellville for years. If I lived in District 106 I’d be voting for Brett without reservation and if he wins he’ll be a valuable addition to the Gwinnett Delegation.
Again, Pete makes some valid points but Brett Harrell is not part of the problem.
