Atlanta Blogs Today: Road elves loose in Georgia!

Posted By on Mon, Mar 23, 2009 at 5:31 PM

Jim Galloway, proving yet again that he knows the true secrets of Georgia politics, reveals the identities of the mysterious "8 to 10 industry and government officials" who handpicked a Gold Dome transportation bill's laundry list of people-moving projects. Damn road elves.

Decatur Metro reports on community gardens in his hamlet and annexation concerns. Also, is Decatur Mayor Bill Floyd thinking about a run for governor?

If you're a card-carrying Young Republican, Shep at Peach Pundit recommends you not vote for Rachel Hoff to lead your organization. Also, Erick the Editor is jousting via email with one of his fellow Macon City Councilmembers.

Griftdrift gives us the rundown on the most recent episode of GPB's "Lawmakers." He reports that Sen. John Wiles, R-Marietta, wants to crack down on novelty ID suppliers who alter the completely innocent and never-used-for-illicit-purposes cards. (Those guys can alter the ID? I had to use nail polish remover.)

Veteran journalist Jim Walls, a 28-year veteran of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — and the editor behind some of the paper's finest investigative work — rolls out his new investigative journalism website. Today he's got more details about a sealed court case involving unfortunately named Gwinnett County businessman Richard Tucker. There's also some questions about campaign contributions to state Rep. Pam Stephenson, D-Decatur.

There's much more on the Internetz, buckos. If you came across something local that's worth scoping out, post it below in the comments.
