And, remember, Perdue thinks he’s the Wizard of Budgets! Details here.
Gov. Sonny Perdue says the state has acquired a 469-acre tract in north Georgia’s Dawson County for conservation purposes.
State officials say the newly acquired land connects two previously separate tracts of the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area.
The Nature Conservancy acquired the Amicalola Creek property from the Forestar Real Estate Group in 2008 and held it until the state could arrange funding.
Sooooo, the Nature Conservancy was going to hold the property until the State could pay…and Perdue chose this fiscal year to do so. Glad there isn’t anything else the money could go for…like more staffing at the GBI Crime Lab.
Remember: the land was already being held for conservation purposes. But the genius that is Sonny Perdue couldn’t wait and had to spend more money now. Genius!
