Our friends over at ALL On Georgia recently released a great piece about the voting tendencies of our state
|All On Georgia.com|
Reading through the list compiled by this write-up's author, Jessica Szilagyi, it became readily apparent that there were only just a handful of state house members, especially on the GOP side, that voted NO more than a small percentage of the time. The #1 Dr. NO? None other than Matt Gurtler, Liberty & Tea Party Hero that represents the North Georgia mountains. He was far & away the biggest no voter doing it at a clip of 50%.

Visit the original article at All On Georgia to get the full list. Certainly a fair number of democrats were high on the list in that Georgia is a GOP-controlled state, but what was most impressive to me, other than Gurtler, were some of the other Liberty-minded reps who were in the Top-20 (out of 180) including stand-up guys like David Stover & Scot Turner. But who was #2 this year? The young fella from Dade Co. - Colton Moore.
So, how did some of our local folks do? Glad you asked.
- DC Dave Belton, HD 112 Rep. & flyer of the friendly skies from Buckhead, GA (Morgan Co.) finished with a very underwhelming & disappointing 8 NO votes (out of 392), meaning he only voted no 2% of the time putting him in the very bottom. Makes sense as he seems to be a people pleaser & a company man, so to speak.
- Andy Welch, Anti-1A Atty-@-Law from Henry Co., did just a little bit better - voting NO 11 times out of 392 (but hey, at least he resigned in disgrace, right?)
- Pam Dickerson of the 113th actually did the best of any of those representing a portion of Newton Co., voting NO 37 times.
