Save the A

Will they carefully plot his motorcade route to avoid seeing any Save the A signs?

Lapel

Do you think one or two of the CSRA Regional Commissioners might wear a Save the A button on their coat lapels at the Double Tree dinner?

Deal will probably arrive at Daniel Field in one of 'our' State King Air turboprop airplanes. Strategically placed signs across Highland Ave near the Daniel Field parking exits would most likely handle the situation. Tail numbers might be N547GA or N543GA.

THIS IS IT!!

We have to get his attention and show him this cause has NOT died. Where is it legal to stand and wave the "A" signs. We need 1000 people near the airport and on his route. Who can help us get this info?

I am sure as long as people with "A" signs stand on the right of way; usually 10 feet off the edge of the road,, you would be fine. Like I said, look for an airplane with round windows and a tail number that ends in GA. Most likely this airplane would be Deal's. During all of the GRU cluster there were a lot of flights into Daniel using these State planes. Once I heard one indicate over the radio that he was enroute to Griffin. One of the members of the Board of Regents is a surgeon from Griffin. The AC should do an investigative report on flights of State planes into Daniel.

Governor Raw Deal....

simply said "on to the GRU, CREW". Another waste on an "empty seat". Lets put a goat in the Governor's Mansion. Taxes, Nay. Spending, Nay. Second term, Nay. SPLOSTS of any kind, Nay.

Why is it such a big deal

Why is it such a big deal that the Governor is coming to Augusta?? I mean, he's the Governor of our state and it should be commonplace for him to visit ALL over Georgia, right? And, yes, all you folks with those "Save the A" signs should definitely take this oppurtunity to come out in HUGE NUMBERS to show him how you feel!

Right on

He rarely comes to Augusta.

He rarely comes to Augusta. The rest of the State does not care about Augusta yet we are the second largest city in the State. All that matters is election time. Get out and show your support for our schools!!!!
