As State Representative, Fred Girod, made people laugh with his humorous floor speeches and rural wisdom. Now that Girod is a new State Senator the charm continues, especially when it comes to mis-pronouncing his name. Yesterday during Senate Floor Session consideration of SB 1067, Sen.Girod addressed President Courtney as “President Cootney”, after the President pronounced his name as “Garod”.
Girod also commented that it was only fitting during this emergency session that the legislature discuss emergency issue like light bulbs. He went on to say” This issue spawns the question, how many legislators does it take to change a light bulb? Apparently 90!”
