State Senator Eric Johnson gets the backbone award from me because you pretty much know where he stands—whether you like his views or not.
From my brief blogging, it is clearly I like bridgebuilding and looking for common ground and I think Lt. Governor candidate Johnson will find a sizable number of African American voters with his pro-vouchers efforts.
My question concerns the ability of private schools to cherry-pick the best kids but I can say that public schools in many places are unacceptable because the students are not focused on learning. Good school, good teacher, scary classmates.
Noticed that Johnson is building a coalition of strong African American women (mothers) whom he has supported at pivotal political times:
Karen Bogans: Spelman graduate; considered run for Congress in Savannah against Rep. Barrows; Johnson was supportive.
Regina Thomas: ran for Congress in Savannah; Johnson was supportive.
Alisha Thomas Morgan: Spelman graduate; considered run for Congress; destined for the national political arena (in this writer’s opinion); Eric Johnson gets heat from the Cobb Co. GOP for donating to her campaign.
Mark my word, the Dem Team needs to revisit vouchers or it’s a wedge issue to separate African American parents and the Dems in the future.
