Another “NO to Dax Lopez” letter – “in our rural North Georgia community, there would be no political payoff for putting a former GALEO sympathizer, fundraiser and tactician in a Superior Court seat”
The below letter was copied to us this evening. I have more to post, but little time…
Dear Gov. Kemp
I just learned that Dax Lopez is on a list for you to pick from for a DeKalb Superior Court appointment. I am shocked that this man is anyone’s choice for a higher court. I hope that you are not seriously considering him.
The fact that Lopez was on the board of the GALEO Co. and remained silent while Jerry Gonzalez accused good, decent people, including legislators and law enforcement officers of “racism” and “hate” because they made it clear that immigration laws matter makes me shudder to think he is any type of judge. GALEO stands against voter ID and uses ethnicity as a political weapon and did so the entire time Dax Lopez was a board member.
Senator Perdue has proven his courage in pointing out the problems with Dax Lopez when Obama tried to make him a federal judge. I am told that there is some imagined political benefit to advancing Dax Lopez due to his ethnicity. I trust we are only going to advance judges because of their proven integrity and personal history. As a recent former Republican county chair, current state committee member and a grassroots activist for your campaign, I respectfully assure you and your advisors that here in our rural North Georgia community, there would be no political payoff for putting a former GALEO sympathizer, fundraiser and tactician in a Superior Court seat.
Please pass over Dax Lopez as Senator Perdue did in 2016.
