Sonny Perdue's appointee as Georgia's chief operating officer, told the Buckhead Business Association recently that it amounted to nothing less than "chaos" to have all 236 members of the General Assembly run for re-election at the same time every two years. Jim Lientz, Gov. Sonny, said 30 percent of the members of the legislature are freshmen and most don't reach any level of effectiveness until their second year, when they have to run for their post all over again. Roy Barnes first appointed Howard to the DNR board when the ex-lieutenant governor became the leader for Barnes' environmental initiatives, including the greenspace program. Gov. Sonny Perdue has excluded from the state Natural Resources Board former Lt. Gov. Pierre Howard, who gave Perdue his biggest boost toward political stardom.
