Baker To Spell Out Policy Initiative

Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Thurbert Baker is set to have a press conference next hour detailing an economic development proposal. Received via email.

WHO: Attorney General Thurbert Baker, Democratic candidate for Governor

WHAT: Press conference detailing major policy initiative

WHEN: Today, Wednesday, May 5, 2010
2:00 pm

WHERE: Altea Therapeutics
387 Technology Circle, NW
Suite 100
Atlanta, GA 30313

UPDATE: Received another email from the Baker campaign saying this:

To members of the media:

I was just informed that the Barnes campaign has this morning called a press conference for 2:00 pm today. As you may recall, I sent out the first notice of our event (which is also today at 2:00 pm) on Monday afternoon so that you would have time to plan to attend (that email is forwarded below).

We have obviously made arrangements with our site days ago, so we will be going forward. While I will not ascribe a motive or intent to our colleagues in Marietta, I would hope that to accommodate our media members and in the interest of ensuring that the voters of Georgia have the opportunity to hear the ideas of their various choices for Governor, they will move their press conference to some other time.

    Barnes released 25 years of personal tax records, which is a bit on the pack-rat side (oooh, rat reference!). And he used the Amazon cloud to do it! (very exciting for a geek)

    Baker wants to give $150 million in tax credits to bio-tech companies, including those doing stem-cell research. I can see how well that will play in the Legislature… The same folks who think that child prostitutes are in it for “fun”. Non-starter.

    Awww… is Thurbert upset that nobody is going to his announcement? I hope he doesnt flip his wig over this (and what a lovely wig he wears)

      Oh my goodness! Yes about the rug. I had the opportunity to see it last Friday. What a sight!! šŸ™‚

      • Romegaguy says:

        I would pay good money to see a debate moderator ask him about it or for someone to yank it off of his head

        • polisavvy says:

          Thanks a lot Romegaguy. I just about choked on a piece of ice!! So funny!! šŸ˜‰
