That’s right, we brought the punching bag for you because when you fully comprehend some of the stories unfolding on Pro Advocate Radio, you’ll want to throw a few jabs.
One topic that is finally in a bright spotlight is judicial oversight, or the lack thereof, in Georgia.
It seems like a no-man’s land at the moment with opposing views about how judicial oversight should be managed getting in the way of the actual investigations that should be taking place. So where does that leave our citizens who are going before the court and subjecting themselves to the authority of, in some cases, judges who know they are not being watched?
We’ll get into how this affects child advocacy, family conflict, mental health, housing stability, job performance, government resources and our business community. As big as the impact is on our state, the investigations and accountability for ethics failures are that much greater.
Until this year we also were not paying attention to how reporters are being treated when they insist on investigating court professionals, judges, court accounting and court record-keeping. Thanks to the publisher of the Fannin Focus in Blue Ridge for boldly opening this door!
Pro Advocate Radio recognizes true advocates, bold reporters and leadership that faces problems with an eye on what is possible. There are too many people to list here, but if you search social media using the #SafeHarborYES hashtag, you’ll find organizations, advocates, media, legislators and agency staff and directors who are driving this conversation – and getting out the votes. One such standout is Tim Echols, who has something to do with directing policy and programs on energy and such matters. He’s big on getting people from around Georgia to join a tour referred to as the Unholy Tours. Eye-opening, motivating, and meant to keep you from getting comfortable in your office chair or recliner at home…not when you can do something about exploitation and trafficking of our youth.
