Griffin launches Baldwin election season with coffee talk

Former Milledgeville Mayor and state Senator Floyd Griffin launched the campaign for his old state Senate seat today by hosting an early morning get together at the Blackbird Coffee in downtown Milledgevile.
And as it was indeed early, he provided the coffee.
The former state Senator from the 25th District, who resigned his Senate seat to seek election as Lieutenant Governor in 1998, is hosting four local coffee talks to talk with voters about his candidacy. Today's installment focused on legislation Griffin said he'll introduce should he be tapped by voters come November.
Griffin said he'll introduce legislation to urge a study on Central State Hospital that will inventory all the resources no the South Milledgeville campus and identify the institution's mission in the future, another bill would urge the creation of a new Youth Development Campus in Milledgeville and to require an impact study be performed before any state facility is slated for closure in Georgia.
Don't be surprised if legislative oversight becomes the rallying cry in Baldwin elections this year. See Thursday's Union-Recorder to read about another candidate who's making oversight Milledgeville's main issue this year.
Griffin said he'll be meeting again at the Blackbird next Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. to talk about jobs.
