Nobody from below the fall line represented in the leadership.

Well, Peach Pundit’s own Erick Erickson is from Macon, which is right at the Fall Line. Otherwise, GLA seems to be purely a North Georgia thang.

…Which there is nothing wrong with where GLA’s board members come from. What matters is that GLA is effective at advancing a pro-life agenda and fostering a culture of life where applicable.

That’s true, but I’m always skeptical (and usually eventually frustrated) by “statewide” organizations that don’t have representation in leadership from the entire state.
I don’t mean to be too critical, though; I’m thrilled that we finally have a sane alternative to GRTL.

This state is big enough for both of these fine organizations. The tone, tactics and audience for each seem a bit different, but hopefully the goal is the same.

The people that I’m familiar with on the list seem good…it’s funny to me though that it got all the way to this stage, what with the whole national group dropping GRTL and picking up GLA, without us even knowing who was on the board.

It’s not really surprising that it got this far without the public knowing who was on the GLA board, particularly with GRTL having such a deeply dysfunctional and even antagonistic relationship with seemingly all parties involved and with GLA being backed by such major media figures as Erick Erickson and Martha Zoller.

I’m not surprised it was successful…just weird to me to not reveal the board before now…Jim Froehlich too much of a lightning rod?

With that much behind the scenes maneuvering, it’s almost like they wanted to build a new stadium.
