The Flynt Family
When the Farmerís Alliance of this county was organized, he was one of the very first to unite with it, believing that it was a move in the right direction, and that it would result in only good to the entire country. He was the first president of the county alliance, and retained that honorable position up to the time of his election to the position he now occupies.
Mrs. Flynt has represented his county in every meeting of the state alliance since its organization and took an active part in formulating the action of the celebrated cotton bagging meeting, when it was determined to throw off the yoke of the jute bagging trust bondage.
As illustrative of the esteem with which Senator Flynt has always been regarded by his fellow citizens, and the amount of confidence they have always had in his ability, it may be mentioned here that he was unanimously elected to represent Taliaferro county in the late celebrated road congress, held last year in Atlanta, at a mass meeting of the citizens of his county, when he was not present and had no knowledge of its proceedings.
Senator Flynt is a thorough democrat. Long before the alliance was thought of he was chairman of the democratic executive committee of his county, and has been a member of the congressional democratic executive committee of the tenth district quite a number of years and has represented his county frequently as a delegate to the different congressional conventions. He is not only thoroughly identified with the agricultural and political interests of his county, but is also thoroughly alive in its educational development.
He was, in 1887 elected to the position of commissioner of education of his county, and has continued to hold that position up to his election to the office of senator with honor to both himself and the interest he has so creditably illustrated in his administration.
