RIP Mickey Channel:
Speaker David Ralston issued the following statement on the passing of former State Representative Mickey Channell:
“Mickey Channell was the kind of man you felt lucky to know. Whether serving on the board of commissioners or the board of education in Greene County or chairing the House Ways & Means Committee, Mickey was always busy working for a brighter tomorrow for all Georgians, particularly children. He was the champion of the legislation that would provide healthcare for some 200,000 children through PeachCare for Kids.
“I am proud to have known Mickey and been able to call him both my colleague and my friend. The entire House mourns his passing and our prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.”
—Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge)
