Sterling’s editorial in the Post reeked of politicking – a 180 from his command during the actual election. Be the useful and believable numbers guy, not whatever that was.

Testing there apparently began about a year later, and there was a Consent Order, etc. A small summary embedded in this article: https://www.georgiahealthnews.com/2019/12/high-levels-ethylene-oxide-detected-covington-warehouse/ So, to recap, the Trump admin would have rather let folks in Smyrna and Covington (not to mention Illinois) live and die ignorantly, breathing ethylene-oxide Swamp Gas.

Georgia has gained a vast majority of the jobs that were lost since March of last year, and we continue to remain strong in economic growth and business development.” https://georgiarecorder.com/brief/georgia-job-growth-picks-up-steam-as-strong-pandemic-recovery-continues/ It seems we doing pretty good under a Biden administration, doesn’t it?
