Vote Jones for senator

  • Follow Letters

In my humble opinion, Corey Johnson is a rookie, and I don’t want to send a rookie to Atlanta to represent me. Harold Jones is an attorney and a former solicitor, and he understands government functions.

He will not be swayed by local bigwigs; he will support the people of Richmond County. He came from good stock; his dad and I both served in the military. During his dad’s absence serving his country, his mom instilled in him discipline and respect for his fellow man.

Knowing that Mr. Johnson is an honorable man, it’s too bad that a choice must be made, but I feel that Mr. Jones is the right man and the most qualified for the position of state senator.

Joseph Diggs Sr.

Hello good citizens of Senate

Hello good citizens of Senate seat district 22, not only is Johnson a rookie as Mr. Diggs stated, he also cannot be trusted. Corey Johnson is talking out of both sides of his neck again. In Sylvia Cooper’s City Ink article on 6/29/2014, she wrote the following, “Mayor Pro Tem Corey Johnson said they should raise taxes enough that they wouldn’t find themselves in this situation next year.” Then two days later 7/1/2014, Corey “Because I’m Great” Johnson stated in an interview telecast by WJBF news 6 the following, “Mayor Pro-Tem Corey Johnson, who's in the Democratic run-off for the Georgia State Senate vacated by Augusta Mayor-Elect Hardie Davis Jr., says the budget is a concern...but he doesn't support raising property taxes now."There's been a lot of concerns and issues about services and things of that nature. I cannot support that. Like I said before, I stand behind my word. Call me a conservative Democrat, but that's what it is, you know. I don't see increasing property taxes, at this point, with the economy," says Johnson. Good people of District 22 this is a continuation of the double talking that the “Great One” has shown since being elected as commissioner for district 2. Is this the type of person WE need representing US under the dome?

I don't know either of these

I don't know either of these men and am not in that voting district, but I know one thing - we sure don't need another lawyer in GA or Washington DC. That's why we are in such a mess right now trying to figure out all the laws these guys write.

And you think Corey “Because

And you think Corey “Because I’m Great” Johnson (his words not mine), can figure out anything at the state level, when he is totally oblivious to what is happening at the local level?

Jones

Hoptoad, before you dismiss Jones merely because he is a lawyer; stop and look around and see if you can figure out what exactly Johnson does for a living. He's a mystery man in that regard.

I can't vote in this race, but if I could, I would vote for Harold Jones.
