Perdue appoints Max Wood

Via Sen. Chip Rogers and AJCCourts on Twitter, Gov. Sonny Perdue has appointed Max Wood, who lost a bid for Attorney General in the Republican primary last month, to serve as the Chief Judge of the Office of State Administrative Hearings.

Wood will replace Judge Lois Oakley, who has retired.

    He made it very clear he never wanted anyhting to do with politics again.

    Now he gets every lawyer’s dream–to be a judge.

      That does not diminish their talents and skills as “winning” people. The appointment of Max Wood is excellent.

      • I’ll take your word for it. But my general impression after seeing eight years of Perdue is that he likes to take over boards & commissions by appointing loyalists. Not necessarily the most qualified, not conservatives who will shrink government, but people who will act like Perdue’s employees.

        He sure isn’t the first governor to do it. But after he ran against Barnes who was unpopular for the same type of control freak behavior, I expected something slightly different.

  2. Howard Roark says:

    I voted for Sam Olens but thought Max Wood was a good candidate for AG. I am still amazed that Preston Smith beat Max Wood in the primary.

    • Lady Thinker says:

      So am I because in my opinion, Max is far better than the other two Republicans and all the Democrats running for the position.
