On May 27, 2009, Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Representative Dubose Porter was interviewed by IPJI's Atlanta area coordinator, Dory Ingram, with the aim of establishing his position on the Jekyll development issue and the actions of the current Jekyll Island Authority board of directors. The interview reveals, among other things, that Representative Porter, who is a member of the Jekyll Island Foundation Board and has been involved with legislation to protect the south end of Jekyll Island, believes that the JIA board should be made up of people experienced in public land planning and who understand that Jekyll is a start park and not a private resort. Rep. Porter also spoke about his desire to establish a conservation easement that would permanently protect the 65% of the island designated by law as ineligible for development.
