|AJC endorses "No
Confederate Flags" Public Service Commissioner
in our opinion our recommendation for Public Service Commissioner
has just been confirmed. The Atlanta Journal has endorsed the
incumbent, Robert Baker. This is the man who thought that it was
fine for "Bell South" to
prohibit Confederate Flags from Yellow Page
Stores selling Flags can put Cuban, Russian, Chinese or any
other Flag in Yellow Page advertising, but Confederate Flags are
prohibited. Further, it does not even have to be a Flag, they even
prohibited company logos that contained part of a Confederate Flag.
The ad (above) of one of our members, Southern Outfitters, was
rejected, with the explanation and copy of the Bell South "policies"
prohibiting any Confederate Flags. The wording is:
The following is from the Bell
South, The Real Yellow Pages, Advertising Standards:
13.02 Confederate Flags - Cuts
of ALL Confederate Flags are PROHIBITED from appearing in Yellow
note: the capitalized "ALL" and
"PROHIBITED" is from their document
When this matter was brought to the attention of Mr. Baker, he
did not care. Of course this was around the time that the Republican
governor was wheeling and dealing with the Chamber to trade letting
the People Vote for a tax increase.
Wonder if Bell South is a member of the
Chamber? If you can't answer that one I have some good land for you
This pandering to the special interests of the Chamber,
ignoring the people that elected officials are supposed to represent
- does not justify re-election. It certainly is a blight upon the
Republican Party and is an example of Party over Principle which has
become all to frequent since the election of Perdue.
Besides, why else would the Atlanta Journal
endorse Robert Baker?

PSC incumbent should stay put
Many Georgia voters have little clue
what members of the Public Service Commission do for a
living. (They're responsible for regulating utility
companies, including providers of electricity, natural gas
and local phone service.) Once they know that, they also
need to know
that incumbent PSC Commissioner Robert "Bobby" Baker,
a Republican, has more than earned re-election.
Public service commissioners run statewide but represent
one of five, region-specific districts. During his
accomplished tenure as District 2 commissioner, Baker, 47,
has proved himself a strong consumer advocate and shown a
willingness to encourage Georgia Power, the state's
largest electric utility, to consider adopting
energy-efficiency programs that could help reduce demand
on the power grid and improve the state's air quality. On
that score, Baker has sometimes been a lone voice in the
During his time on the commission, Baker also has
worked hard to reduce unnecessary regulation, control
costs and encourage competition. If re-elected, Baker has
said, he plans to continue working for lower utility bills
while guaranteeing that the state has enough generation
capacity to meet growing demand.
Baker is facing off against 87-year-old Democrat Mac
Barber, a fixture in state politics for decades who was
first elected to the General Assembly in 1948 and later
served four six-year terms on the Public Service
Commission. Although Barber's colorful past and longevity
prompted one political scientist to describe him as "a cat
with nine lives," he's no match for Baker's level-headed,

Principles over Party and believe in voting for what you
believe is right, we recommend writing in Michael

then we recommend George Bush. Kerry is scary!
Georgia Appeals Court
Attorney Sheffield is well
qualified for the position, conservative, and a native
Georgian. One opponent, Howard Mead, is attempting to
win the election with misleading slick TV ads. Mead is
backed by large Atlanta Law Firms and Roy Barnes, whose
administration he served in.
Public Service Commission, District 2 -
or JaLynn Hudnall, Libertarian
incumbent Robert B. "Bobby" Baker, Jr. has
shown that he is more interested in representing the
Chamber, ie. Bell South, than the citizens of Georgia.
This is a wolf in the hen house situation.

has poor voting record on immigration.
