In campaign email, John Noel takes a victory lap after last week’s PSC debate

Above: Just a few of the Women for Noel Georgia’s solar-powered PSC candidate must be feeling pretty good.

Meeting with Peach County Democrats at a statewide candidate forum in Fort Valley, John @NoelforPSC shows off place cards he made for his no-show opponents, who don't like to leave ATL.

Oops! As for the debate: It’s clear to me that Lindy Miller didn’t lose last…

Sydney, the vote-grabbing dog

After a town hall meeting the other night, a woman told me she was torn between supporting John Noel and his Democratic primary opponent in a statewide Georgia Public Service Commission race —until she received John’s flyer. It has a lot of information, but it was this picture on the front that convinced her to back John, because a man with a dog like that is a man worth voting for. BTW, the lady is a veterinarian. It’s true. Sydney is a great dog. I think she laughs a lot. Her tale and whiskers make her look like a dog from a fantasy story, and the expression she has in the photo? Pretty much constant. She is one happy dog. It is…

Georgia PSC candidate Lindy Miller’s voter registration problem hasn’t gone away

And then there’s this.  Update: On Friday, Lindy Miller posted a picture of herself with her family at the Decatur early voting station. If she didn’t vote on a provisional ballot, then it would appear that DeKalb’s Board of Elections staff has already decided in her favor in the challenge case–although the BOE director told me these cases are only decided by the full panel. If the mismatch on addresses was a clerical error, then the board should make quick work of dismissing the challenge May 29, and if so, unfortunate that it took four years to clear up. There’s an old saying in Southern politics: There is nothing so worthless it can’t at least be used as a bad example. Lindy…

Sen. Max Cleland supports John Noel, Georgia’s solar-powered PSC candidate

Above: Former U.S. Sen. Max Cleland with Georgia PSC candidate John Noel Big news from a big name in Georgia politics. One of my heroes. I met Max Cleland at a civic-club luncheon when I was the Houston-Peach Bureau chief for the Macon Telegraph in 1981, a few months before I moved to Atlanta with Judy as newlyweds. He was a wonderfully friendly man. I went on to the PSC and saw him maybe a half-dozen times when I worked at the PSC, saw him speak as Secretary of State once or twice. Maybe 25 years later, I saw him at a campaign function and we talked about the 80s, of Billy Lovett and Bobby Pafford and Joe Frank Harris. Good memories. He’s…
