you mean there’s an area where Georgia doesn’t underperform?

From Governing Magazine’s “Governance Performance Project 2005”:

Over the past decade, Georgia has created an entirely new HR system, one that is now likely the best in the country. The state does serious workforce planning aimed at finding employees with the necessary qualifications for future needs ó as opposed to just looking for people with experience in specific jobs . . . Meanwhile, Georgia has the ability to terminate underperforming employees without a great deal of red tape ó something that it didnít have until recently, and that many states still donít have.

The full report isn’t so uniformly positive, but overall they gave Georgia a B — and only seven states received a B+ or A-.

I’m as resistant as anyone to the idea that Sonny Perdue might have actually done something right. Still, this evaluation might be worth a look.
