Judge Sammy Ozburn has made the final cut and is on the governor's short list for the vacant Georgia Supreme Court post. We suggest that if you agree with us in thinking Judge Ozburn will make an excellent justice, then you should drop the governor a line in the next two weeks and tell him your thoughts about our judge.
The governor can be reached at http://gov.georgia.gov.
