County Hires First In-House Attorney

I'll post the story about the new attorney from the Fayette Front Page shortly (if you're in a hurry, the story is on the front page of the Front Page)... I'm also writing a longer blog about the new attorney. Kind of crazy right now as I'm working a booth at the Peachtree City Running Club Classic (15K race) and have to be there at yawn:30 in the morning (no later than 6:30... yuk!!!). Anyway, found this on Fox 5 News and had to share it now. It's also on the Fayette Front Page.

Gotta ask the question, too --- they just hired a guy with six, yes only SIX, years experience. He was (is?) Commissioner Eric Maxwell's attorney. He's sued the county to try and get rid of our sign ordinance. There were three in the top tier. One of the guys has worked as a county attorney. He has 32 years experience in every single category the county needed. Why did they choose a guy with lesser experience and with a controversial issue hanging over his head (see the video)? There's another issue out there that's attached to him also, we're working now to get the scoop on it and see if the info we received is accurate.

Anyway, I need to get a few hours sleep, lots of news to cover tomorrow. Here's the link I promised when I started writing this: NEW! Watch Fox 5 Video re: Citizen Muckraker and Scott Bennett (If link doesn't work, go to and do a search on "citizen muckraker" or "mcdonough")
