Riley lets Hunt Twist in the Wind

photo from the Cullman Times

Former Governor and Republican trail-blazer Guy Hunt is having a tough time making his financial ends meet. He has recently been widowed (and subsequently remarried) and is caring for his disabled daughter. Hunt's only pension ($6,750) comes from his 12 year stint as Cullman County probate judge. Alabama offers no retirement plan for its governors.

In an attempt to ease Hunt's dire financial straits members of the state legislature appropriated $18,000 a year for Hunt (in a nominal role as a "councilor"). However the legislature gave Gov. Riley the discretion to approve or disapprove the appropriation. And to this point, Riley has given no indication as to whether he will approve Hunt's new role.

The legislature approved the Hunt appropriation several months ago, yet Riley is still keeping Hunt guessing as the budget goes into effect on Saturday. Guy Hunt's political heyday was before my time, and thought I am sympathetic to his money woes, I am not sure it's a good practice for the state to bail out every politician who's hit hard times.

But it does seem unnecessarily cruel for Riley to string Hunt along for months. Either tell Hunt it's not a good idea or cut him a check. And then let's move on to the issues that affect the rest of us.

The more hours of training you have, the better your chances of landing a
desired job. These service providers are a kind of
online coaching centres which offer easy-to-comprehend language learning programs which
includes Multimedia Courses, Virtual Classroom, Online

imperative to determine first their difficulties and needs so
that whatever materials a teacher purports to design should be
in accordance with these needs.
