Marietta Daily Journal 10/25/16 article on Cobb School Board “Slush Fund” jeapardizing March 2017 eSPLOST MDJ Around Town article
UPDATE: On Thu. Oct. 27, The Cobb School Board voted 6-1 to include this extra “just in case” $40.9m (5%) to the EdSPLOST. This brings the Total expected over 5 years from $818.6m to $859.5m. Randy Scamihorn was the only Board member who spoke against this late add, and voted against it.
Another egregious Religious Liberty violation in Georgia, this is another reason why we need a Religious Freedom bill. Read about the case of Dr. Eric Walsh. Why was he fired from his position at Georgia’s Department of Public Health? Because of the contents of his sermons as a lay pastor! He sued the State of Georgia for being fired for his religious beliefs.
If you feel that Dr. Walsh’s Freedom of Religion rights have been violated, please contact Governor Deal’s office at 404-656-1776 or Online contact form Also contact new Attorney General Chris Carr’s office at (404-656-3300) or email AGOlens@law.ga.gov (This email should still work until the email address for Chris Carr is set up and properly working. He started as AG today Nov. 1).
Tell the Governor and AG that you are outraged at the Religious Discrimination perpetrated on Dr. Eric Walsh, and that they should settle the case, apologize to him, and offer him his job back. (Please be passionate, yet polite).
Check out a hard-hitting but spot-on article about Governor Deal abandoning Constitutional rights and principles for the god of money. This article by Jane Robbins references the corporate extortion of North Carolina and its principled and fearless Governor McCrory, over the safety and security of girls in bathrooms, locker rooms, etc. Gov. Deal abandons NC governor (and principle)
