The Ehrhart/Peterson Feud Might Be Over

Welcome to Part 3 of the Ehrhart/Peterson feud (you can read Part 1 and Part 2).

It seems this saga has come to an end. The AJC reported Chairman Earl Ehrhart and Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson mended fences.

State Rep. Earl Ehrhart said he and Tech president Bud Peterson had a very “cordial and productive” conversation this week about Ehrhart’s criticisms of the institution and new due-process policies being implemented for all schools in the state’s University System, including Georgia Tech.

Chairman Ehrhart noted two satisfactory actions taken by President Peterson: First, President Peterson contacted the mother of a 19-year-old student accused of sexual misconduct. Second, he wrote a letter to the Phi Delta Theta apologizing for unfairly punishing the students. You can read more about the issues here.

All is well under the Gold Dome…in Chairman Ehrhart’s committee at least.
