Musician active in policy-making

Could we have a rock ‘n’ roller in the governor’s mansion?

Chuck Leavell, a Georgia tree farmer, also plays keyboard for the Rolling Stones.

So when he was in Atlanta last week to introduce the Stones’ film “Shine the Light” at the Fox Theatre, I asked Leavell if he’s given the idea more serious thought.

“I still enjoy engaging in policy-making,” said Leavell, who is working with Gov. Sonny Perdue on conservation efforts

“I’m still a musician and still making records. But who knows what the Stones will do in the next couple of years? If I had to make a decision between going on a Stones tour or running for governor, it would be a tough choice. One of those pays a lot better than the other.”

Leavell, a registered Democrat, said he has been able to work with leaders from both parties. “I tend to vote more for the person than the party,” said Leavell, who said if he decides to enter politics, he would focus on environmental and educational issues.

Maybe 3/31/06 would finally surface if Chuck was governor.
