Ben Gillette

If Hillary Clinton stands to win this election which she should, she will need to bring on a VP like Steven Colbert to neutralize the Trump infatuation from the youth vote... I am calling it tonight... we need a Clinton Colbert Ticket!!!

Let this be a lesson to those who believe business deregulation and defunding of state and local programs fix the economy...

While many other states are recovering, Georgia's unemployment rate has risen. Some blame the state's laissez-faire approach to policy.

Today I am thankful for family friends and neighbors who have been supportive and have donated time money and talents to help me in my ambition to better serve our community. I promise to never forget or to never give up because I have all of you behind me. A sincere thanks and happy Thanksgiving to you all! -Ben
