Honest question

While I do support a compromise to restore limited, partial funding to both the East Athens Development Corporation and the Hancock Corridor Development Foundation, I do have a question stemming from this rather nice examination of the budding economic relationships between Northeast Georgia and China ...

Why in the world were Winston Heard and Julia Menefield on this trip as representatives from EADC? I mean, this should be a legitimate question, particularly seeing how Heard has repeatedly said he was in China on this very trip when the vote to deny funding was passed.

I'm just not entirely clear on how this a trip to China is going to specifically bring jobs to East Athens, but perhaps I'm wrong.

At the rate they're going (8:30), the Commissioners will get around to the CDBG funding sometime after midnight.

Somebody stick a sock in Carl Jordan.

In all fairness, there was about an hour of public comment. Even keith Heard showed up to pontificate!
