tea-bag state Senator Bill Heath has his panties in a wad re. Chip Rogers

Last edited Tue Jan 29, 2013, 10:33 PM - Edit history (1)

Bill Heath has his panties in a wad over the petition to fire gop hack Chip Rogers from the sweetheart job he was given at GPB by Nathan Deal. Senator Heath needs to hear from as many people as possible about this, his annoyance indicates that we're getting under his skin. Here's his contact information:

404-656-3943
billheath@billheath.net

edit to add:

Here's Bell Heath's number at his home office in Bremen. This is probably the best one to call and show him some love:
770-537-5234



Dear Groundloop,

It appears that you may have been conned into signing an online petition
concerning the hiring of Chip Rogers. I doubt that you even knew what you
were allowing your contact information to be used for.

You may have been lured into signing a petition by Better Georgia, an
organization headed by Bryan Long, thinking that a petition containing a
list of all the signers would be provided to legislators. Instead, after
obtaining your contact information the organization sends an email to every
legislator each time someone enters their information. This poorly designed
tactic wastes the limited time and resources that legislators have to
conduct their jobs.

These childish tactics of Bryan Long and Don Weigel probably have the same
effect with other legislators as it does with me, that is to view the emails
as annoying, filter them out and credit Better Georgia as an irresponsible
organization rather than considering them as having some benefit.

In order to serve the citizens of the 31st Senate District, all emails of
this nature will receive an automated response so as to minimize the abuse
of my limited resources and time by Better Georgia.


That being said, if you are a citizen of the 31st Senate District I want to
hear from you. Please call my office so I can serve you to the best of my
ability.


If you wish to share your thoughts on the tactics of Better Georgia, they
can be reached at 706-410-1867. They donšt share their email address in
order to guard themselves from the very tactics they use.

Respectfully,
Bill

1. I've been watching this unfold on the Better Georgia site.

Do you think anything will happen? My feeling is that with the overwhelming Republican majorities in state government, they really don't give a damn and will just continue to do as they please. A sorry situation that reinforces the feeling of helplessness with regard to any change in this state.

2. This issue has actually made it into the MSM, so there's a chance

If we can keep asking questions, keep putting pressure on our elected officials (even the right wing variety), and keep putting this issue in the news it has a chance of being fixed.

3. WSB TV just ran a news story on this - keep up the pressure !!!!


WSB TV just ran a news story about Bill Heath's form email, they called him out for saying that he's annoyed by voters signing this petition and that it was a waste of his time. The news crew tried to talk to him at the state capital about this but he ran away from them. Then he agreed to be interviewed about it, but instead hid in his office behind a copy machine.
