On Saturday, Democratic Party of Georgia E.D. Page Gleason resigned.
Galloway also mentions the 14-month long gap in conversation between DPG chair Mike Berlon and treasurer Russell Edwards, leading to Edwards’ ill-informed statements about the DPG’s fiscal health. If that seems a little long you’d be correct.
But Edwards for the past year or so has been on a largely self-serving mission to save Athens from a Walmart. Setting aside the merits of whether or not Walmart should be in Downtown Athens, Edwards has devoted his time to preventing its opening and been largely absent from other duties he is expected to fulfill. I’ve also been told that in addition to the all-Democratic commission supporting the store, the local NAACP endorsed it as well.
