Lindy D. Farmer Jr., general manager of Henry County Water & Sewerage Authority, was recently honored for his 30 years of service. Farmer is believed to be the longest-serving chief executive of any water utility in Georgia. “I feel honored and privileged to work in a career field that I truly enjoy and in a community that I have grown up in and have always called home,” Farmer said during a presentation honoring his work. Farmer joined the utility in March 1982. During his tenure, he oversaw the construction of about 1,200 miles of water lins and 600 miles of sewer lines as well as all five of the authority’s five reservoirs, all four of the authority’s wastewater plants and the authority’s Tussahaw Water Treatment Facility which opened in 2007.
Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, an ardent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, recently likened people with pre-existing medical conditions to wrecked cars and appeared to suggest that the sick are at fault for their illnesses just as drivers are at fault for their accidents.
