Gunning for more statewide name recognition? Going to need it if she expects most Georgians to pronounce her last name as Bæk ā yau̇.

When in your opening paragraph of the ‘I seek to’ speech you admit to having no idea how the federal government works or effects your daily life, (and yet you hold a Ph.D. leave education) – this tells me either; a.) your clueless in general and we don’t need you having a senate seat which may lead you to be a member of the intelligence or foreign policy committees, or b.) you’r lying – I mean pondering to find your base.

You should hear the quality of the audio.

As a native of Fayette County I apologize for Dr. Baccallao.

I would make a reference to Carly Fiorini and her “fail up” strategy here, but unlike Mrs. Fiorina, Dr. Baccallao has actually held elected office–albeit for one year.

I still miss Terri Smith on the FCBOE. She was one of the good ones.

Charlie,

Me, too. Well, sorry, not sorry. Sometimes the voters get what they deserve.

Hey, thanks Trey A.! It was a less than a year. There are several good ones who have stepped up to run for school board this time. I hope the Fayette County voters have learned their lessons about falling for political propaganda & failing to vote in primaries. We will see.
