We all move up a rung

Because the best is stepping aside.

Presumably the vote on SR 1199 will be unanimous.
WHEREAS, during his tenure with Associated Press and InsiderAdvantageGeorgia, he has been responsible for keeping politicians honest, and no one has greater depth of knowledge about what goes on in the political and corporate communities in our state, a knowledge he used to keep the public well informed and give public servants the ability to make better policy; and ...

WHEREAS, his significant organizational and leadership talents, his remarkable patience and diplomacy, his keen sense of vision, his knowledge of where to go and how to get the story first, and his ability to work alongside the members of the General Assembly, gaining their trust while remaining an honest critic, have earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues, associates, and the members of this body; and ...

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE that the members of this body commend Mr. Richard "Dick" Pettys for his many decades of efficient, effective, unselfish, and dedicated public service to the citizens of his state and extend to him their most sincere best wishes for continued health and happiness.

UPDATE: The lieutenant governor's office sent me this picture, of Pettys heading to the front of the Senate chamber to be honored.

Notepad and pen in pocket.
