Thanks to attorneys for legislative service

Posted: April 10, 2013 - 12:04am

Editor:

In the aftermath of the recently completed 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank my fellow attorneys who represent Columbia County in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The lawyer/legislators whose districts include Columbia County are Rep. Barry Fleming and Sen. Jesse Stone.

These attorneys’ acceptance of the professional and personal sacrifices that go along with serving in public office is inspiring to and appreciated by their fellow members of the State Bar of Georgia.

Their commendable efforts to shape public policy and make Georgia a better state serve to promote the cause of justice, uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all citizens.

Robin Frazer Clark

President

State Bar of Georgia

You have got to be kiding!!!

One lawyer praising other lawyers for their sacrifice? Sacrificed what, pray tell. Money,power and influence peddling are the three pillars of politics. Why else would a farmer spend a half million dollars to win a $12,000 a year political office. Don't fall victim to another local attorney's statement that all jurors are ignorant. We are all potential jurors.
