A Fond Farewell

I’m still here, but a number of legislators are saying goodbye, hence it is time for a paean to their service.

This is a list of outgoing members of the House, culled from various Facebook posts, “reliable sources” and media reports. If I’ve missed any, please post a link in the comments so I can verify the info.

A list of retiring senators is coming forthwith.

  • Amos Anderson
  • Lee Anderson
  • Roberta Abdul Salam
  • Stephanie Benfield
  • Doug Collins
  • Elly Dobbs
  • Bob Hanner
  • Mark Hatfield
  • Joe Heckstall
  • Billy Horne
  • Sistie Hudson
  • Lynmore James
  • Martin Scott

So far that’s six Democrats and seven Republicans.

    I’ll especially miss Rep. Sistie Hudson. Best wishes to her as she runs for Hancock County commissioner.

    Honorable mention to Roberta Abdul-Salaam.

  2. The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

    So you mean that the idiots at Georgia Right To Life threatened Amos Amerson with a primary opponent even though he was retiring.

    Yeah, that’s some real great working relationship with the Legislature that they’ve got there.

          For a good laugh, check out the “Personal & Economic Liberty” tab on the PeachTea Party page. It’s literally content free. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. And the only content on the”Fiscal Responsiblity” page is about ethics reform. A worthy topic to be sure, and indirectly related, but really? Is that all they have to say about fiscal responsibility? I don’t think I’m interested in what Peach Tea has to offer.
