      And no better choice than Stephen Kelley either. He made a great D.A. I wonder who will replace him.

    What is her resume or qualifications for the judgeship? I’ve only heard her name or seen her in action at SEB meetings presenting cases before the board in her capacity as “inspector general” (which I think was created in the last couple of years).

    For Perdue, she holds the most important qualification: former prosecutor. Doesn’t really matter if she has tried a divorce case or ever handled a contract case or done a real estate closing. She has prosecuted criminals. ‘Nuf said.

    Federal Judge Alimo past away at Brunswick a few days ago. Rumors are that Georgia’s AG may be appointed by Obama to fill that seat.
