GNB Update

Here's what's happening for Tuesday on GNB...

A school police officer keeps his job, for now. The Albany Herald reports that the Dougherty County Board of Education voted three to one, with three abstaining votes, to allow officer Keith Frazier to stay on the payroll. His work was recently questioned because he didn't report any serious incidents to Dougherty County School Police Chief Troy Conley. Frazier could still face suspension without pay, or outright termination.

A runoff to decide Georgia's newest member of Congress. The Associated Press reports that Republicans Tom Graves and Lee Hawkins will do battle for the ninth Congressional District seat tonight (Tuesday). The winner will replace fellow GOP member Nathan Deal. Deal gave up his spot on Capitol Hill to run for governor earlier this year.

Governor Sonny Perdue says no to two state Senate Bills. Peach Pundit reports that Perdue vetoed SB1 and SB148. He says that a potential power structure from from the governor's office to the legislature was the reason behind the veto.
