Happy Birthday Chairman Smyre

Today, a titan of not just Georgia but Southern politics turned 69 years young.

Chairman Calvin Smyre is the longest serving member of the General Assembly and serves as Dean of the House.

If you reside in the state of Georgia, then I guarantee you are indebted to his nearly half a century of service to our great state.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Chairman. Thank you for all you do.

Rep Smyre is a good and thoughtful man. Have enjoyed getting to know him over the past couple of years. Hope his birthday celebration has been fitting.

Zell and the Big Dog. Good times.

Here’s a shot from a few years ago celebrating 20 years of the Hope scholarships. I’m having trouble posting the image but it’s worth clicking to view.
