    Re: where’s the love in Fulton ?

    From the AJC – judge might toss a some Fulton co folks in jail over travel expenses;

    “Now Superior Court Chief Judge Gail Tusan has ordered County Manager Dwight Ferrell and Finance Director Patrick O’Connor to show why they shouldn’t be held in contempt for violating a recent court order to reimburse the judges. She’s threatened to incarcerate them if they don’t.”

    So would they be allowed out to testify in the property tax lawsuit against the county ?

      (Bit of a twist that the county is asking the judges for accountability and they say, not required and that held up in court) :)
