About Herman Cain
HERMAN'S YOUTH AND THE AMERICAN DREAM  Herman Cain grew up in Atlanta, Georgia with loving parents and little else. His father worked three jobs—as a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur—and his mother was a domestic worker. Even though these jobs required hard work and little glamour, his parents knew this life was better than the dirt farms upon which they grew up. They also knew that this hard work was the key to achieving their American Dreams.  Herman’s parents had two dreams. First, they wanted to own their own house. Secondly, they wanted both of their children to graduate from college. During the segregation era in the Deep South, these aspirations might have seemed lofty, but they knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and faith in the greatest country on the Earth, they could achieve.  The first dream was realized in a modest brick house on Albert Street in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of saving from his many jobs, Herman’s father surprised the whole family, even his wife, by purchasing a home for their family. The second dream was realized when Herman graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in mathematics in 1967. His brother, Thurman, would go on to graduate from Morris Brown College.  Inspired by the work ethic and character of his parents, Herman continued his education by earning his Master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University while working full-time developing fire control systems for ships and fighter planes for the Department of the Navy. Though Herman enjoyed using his talents as a civilian employee for the Navy, he gravitated towards the culture of business.  BUSINESS MAN, ADVOCATE, PATRIOT  HERMAN'S CORPORATE SUCCESSES  Herman returned to his home of Atlanta to begin working as a computer systems analyst for the Coca-Cola Company. After considerable success at Coca-Cola, he moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period of time, Herman rose to position of Vice President. Although the comforts of a corner office on the 31st floor of a majestic corporate building seemed satisfying, Herman knew that he needed a challenge.  He became the regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King division. This meant starting from the “ground up,” dodging grease fires and broiling hamburgers. Herman was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 of their restaurants. Within three years, it became the best performing region in the company.  Energized by overcoming the many obstacles of his job at Burger King, Herman took on the biggest challenge of his career. He accepted the call to become the President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and he led his management team to a buyout of the company.  His professional successes garnered the respect and admiration of industry peers who named him the President of the National Restaurant Association. Under Herman’s administration, the group grew significantly and began to lobby for the interests of America’s restaurateurs and small business owners.  In 1994, as head of the National Restaurant Association, he had the opportunity to speak with President Clinton during a nationally televised town hall meeting. Here, Herman challenged the President regarding the impact on businesses if his health care overhaul proposal were passed. President Clinton attempted to assure him and the millions of viewers watching at home that his legislation would not harm American business owners and their employees.  Herman was skeptical. “Quite honestly Mr. President, your calculations are incorrect,” he said. “In the competitive marketplace, it simply doesn’t work that way.” His words echoed across America, and Newsweek named Herman Cain the primary saboteur of Hillarycare.  Through these and other appearances on behalf of the National Restaurant Association, Herman began working with business leaders across all sectors of the American economy. This led to his acceptance of a position on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and he was subsequently elected their chairman. In this role, he analyzed economic conditions in the region and notified the Federal Reserve of how their policies should respond.  After coming in an impressive 2nd in his 2004 bid for the United States Senate in Georgia, Herman soon became the host of his own radio talk show, “The Herman Cain Show,” on Atlanta’s WSB 95.5 FM/AM 750.  Today, as a former Republican candidate for the Presidency, and as the CEO of the newly formed Cain’s Solutions Revolution, he is still a very active and outspoken voice for conservative issues. He serves as a regular contributor on several broadcast networks and as a keynote speaker at conferences and events around the nation. Earlier this year, Mr. Cain began the next phase of his life’s journey, taking over for nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Neal Boortz, upon his retirement.  Herman has established the all-new “Cain Media Division” of THE New Voice, Inc. which is sure to provide yet another set of twists and turns to an already colorful career.  Despite the many professional commitments of his life, Herman continues to enjoy most the time spent with family and friends. As his children got married and had their own children, he knew that he had an extraordinary obligation to do what he could to make this a safe and prosperous nation for them. The paramount joys in his life are his wife, Gloria, his children and his four grandchildren, the youngest of which was born on New Year’s Day 2012.   Newly launched: HermanCain.com

  • As more information becomes available about the Equifax breach scandal, U.S. consumers are still searching for answers on whether they are vulnerable to identity fraud.  So that is why WSB Radio, Channel 2 Action News, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Consumer Adviser Clark Howard teamed up Monday morning to answer your questions.   Clark Howard was joined by Channel 2 Action News anchor Craig Lucie LIVE in Team Clark Howard's Consumer Action Center. They fielded questions and talked about the breach for over an hour.   The Facebook Live of the event reached more than 400,000 people worldwide:
  • Two suspected gang members are on the run after an assault at an outlet mall in Woodstock. Investigators said police responded around 7:30 p.m. Sunday to a report of shots fired at Ridgewalk Parkway. Police said there was an altercation between a 23-year-old driver and three suspected gang members at the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta. Police said at least one of three gang members shot at the driver. The driver was not injured. A 16-year-old was arrested with a gun and drugs, according to police. Police are still searching for the other two people involved.  TRENDING STORIES: 'I failed miserably': Teacher apologizes for profanity-laced homework 20-year-old woman found dead in the middle of the road VIDEO: Teacher is repeatedly slapped during fight between students Police are also searching for a person of interest, who they believe witnessed the shooting.  'He was not the shooter, but we do need to locate him,' said Brittany Duncan with the Woodstock Police Department. Residents said they were concerned to hear about the shooting in an area where they thought they could escape crime.  'Wow, that's something that's usually not around here. Not this far up, it's not,' Nicole Woody said.  Woody said she carries a gun to protect herself.  'In my family, we all carry so I think everyone should do that in order to protect themselves from stuff like that,' she said.  Police are asking anyone with information on the shooting to contact them.
  • State officials allowed Georgia State’s new stadium to operate despite a failing sprinkler system and fire pump, according to a recent fire inspection report obtained by Channel 2 Action News.  Nearly 700 sprinkler parts have been recalled and it has been recommended that they be replaced, according to the news station.  But Georgia State Fire Marshal Dwayne Garriss said the recommendations are just that — recommendations, not requirements. He said he has “absolutely no concern” and safety is not being compromised.  Approximately 60 areas of the stadium, including service elevators, have no sprinklers at all, according to the August report. More than 50 sprinklers were also in varying stages of corrosion and need replacement.  As for the recommendations, Garriss said that “even in the code itself it says those should be remedied versus they shall be.” GSU officials said they knew the 20-year-old system needed work when the stadium, then Turner Field, was purchased in January in a $30 million deal.  The school was still able to land an occupancy certificate from Garriss’ office after working with a Fire Watch service that allows a panel alert system to alert officials when there is a fire in the stadium, Channel 2 reported.  “If there is a fire situation in the stadium anywhere,” GSU associate vice president for facilities management Ramesh Vakamudi said, “the alarm should show up which area of the stadium. If it’s a real (emergency), they will notify people to evacuate the area while we’re trying to deal with the fire.”  The Panthers’ football team opened its season Aug. 31 in the facility against Tennessee State. The next scheduled home game is Oct. 21 against Troy. The annual Corky Kell Classic on Aug. 18-19 featured seven high school football games played in the stadium. Minor renovations on the sprinkler system have begun, but it’s not clear when they will be completed, Channel 2 reported. Work on the more serious issues is still in the planning stages.  — Staff writer Lauren Foreman contributed to this article. In other news: 
  • DeKalb County police said two people broke into and stole from an ambulance. It happened on Soapstone Drive last week. Detectives are now releasing video in hopes someone recognizes the people involved. “That's messed up, yeah,' said neighbor Frederick Montgomery. Montgomery was just as stunned as police when looking at surveillance video of thieves stealing from an ambulance as the paramedics worked on a patient. “It's even more egregious to steal from someone trying to do their job out here, trying to help someone else,' DeKalb Police Lt. Lonzy Robertson said. TRENDING STORIES: 20-year-old woman found dead in the middle of the road Suspected gang members assault man at outlet mall, police say Mother wanted in connection with $300 million meth operation The video shows a man in a hoodie grab a backpack and then seconds later he jostles a work tray and grabs a second bag. “That's really hard to believe, paramedics out of all people. Yeah, that’s crazy never thought that,' Montgomery said. Inside the bags were tactical books, electronic notebooks and thousands of dollars worth of items, including a stethoscope, social security numbers, wallets, debit cards and car and house keys. “They were very quick and precise in what they were doing. They got in and out and no one saw anything,' Robertson said. Neighbors questioned if it was a set-up. Channel 2's Liz Artz spoke to the woman who was taken care of by paramedics and the woman said she was sick. Police said it was likely a crime of opportunity. “When they saw it was unlocked, they took what they wanted,' Robertson said. “It makes you think a lot. Make sure you keep doors locked. Even the paramedics are getting robbed,' Montgomery said. Police said anyone with information on the robbery should contact them.
  • Metro Atlanta will soon feel relief from the spike in gas prices brought on by Hurricane Harvey's effect of Gulf refineries.   That word from two of Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland's energy sources. 'It's a quite natural reaction of the market to say a month from now prices will be lower because we'll have a better supply and demand situation,' said Dr. Ray Hill, energy economist at Emory University. 'I think we're going to have more than 10 cents, more than 20 cents drop in gasoline prices by that time.”  TRENDING STORIES: 20-year-old woman found dead in the middle of the road VIDEO: Officers hailed as heroes for rescuing people trapped inside burning car Thief steals nearly $2 million from courier van Andy Milton, supply director at Mansfield Oil in Gainesville, predicted $2.50 a gallon by mid-October. Milton told Strickland that gas supplies have vastly improved over the past two weeks, but some Texas refineries are only now getting product pumped into the Colonial Pipeline. Atlanta's main gas lifeline is still not pumping its usual volume, three weeks after having to halt the flow due to Hurricane Harvey.   'The fact that this is taking maybe a month, six weeks, that's not very long.  This is not virtual reality; this is reality,' Hill said. 
  • Fayetteville Police are looking for a pair of armed robbers who targeted a Dollar General store Tuesday night as employees were closing. Surveillance video captures two armed masked men running into the store just before 10 p.m. at the location on Banks Road. One man with a rifle demanded money from the safe while another demanded money from the register. No one was hurt in the incident. TRENDING STORIES: 20-year-old woman found dead in the middle of the road Suspected gang members assault man at outlet mall, police say Mother wanted in connection with $300 million meth operation 'This is dangerous,' said Capt. Mike Whitlow with the Fayetteville Police Department. 'We need these guys off the street.' Police say the robbers left in a gray sedan with a Georgia-issued University of Florida tag. It's the second time the store has been robbed in the past few months, according to police. There is no known connection between the two robberies, Whitlow said. 'It’s just frightening to know masked robbers are in your area,' said Chalonda Walker, who lives nearby.
