A+ Grades for Hill, Parsons, Carson
The Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity has three Northeast Cobb Republicans high on its list.
The Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity released its 2011-2012 Georgia General Assembly Legislative scorecard earlier this month, with three Northeast Cobb legislators receiving an A+ rating.
Legislators were scored on 12 separate pieces of legislation, including Zero Based Budgeting (SB 33), Student Scholarships (HB 325), Revenue & Tax Relief Act (HB 386) and GA Government Accountability Act (HB 456).
In addition, Congressman Tom Price, a Roswell Republican who represents Northeast Cobb in the U.S. House of Representatives, earned an "A" grade from AFP.
Hill is unopposed in his bid for re-election. Parsons is being challenged by Republican Tea Party supporter JoEllen Smith in the July 31 primary. Carson, completing the unfinished term of the late Bobby Franklin, is facing minister Martin Hawley in the GOP primary.
Price will have Democratic opposition in November in the heavily Republican 6th District of Georgia.
