Brookhaven, GA, July 10, 2015 – The Post Reports – House District 80 Resident Rocky Hanes supplies the following Letter to the Editor.
From Mr. Hanes:
From my perspective, I know Catherine personally and consider her to be the highest measure by which all politicians should be judged by. She has devoted her entire career to defending those who have been wronged against the unjust powers that be.
Being a public defender and attorney, Catherine loves to read legislation, referendums, and bills, etc. She also has the unique ability to pick apart legislation and find out the things that the presenters don’t won’t you to know when they bury them deep in the script and cover and coat them with flowery language.
She identifies legislation that looks great on the surface, but when analyzed further is shown to be either faulty, not necessary, or not the answer to the real problem. Catherine doesn’t tell you what she wants you to know just to pass legislation. She tells you what you need to know about legislation, and how it affects you, your family, and your neighborhood.
For example, legislation designed to facilitate the growth of big business or the ease with which government functions may look great for the local economy on the surface. However, it may have a major impact on your personal taxes and/or your civil liberties, without you gaining anything from it.
Catherine makes us aware of such things before it’s too late and we have already voted on it. She is truly a protector of the people as well as their corporate and legislative watchdog. And, the powers that be know it.
If you live in House District 80, I encourage you to make a special effort Tuesday morning, July 14, to go out and give her your vote. Let’s put “We the People” back into the government.
Thank you. –Rocky Hanes
