Re: “Farewell, Fulton?

James Reese, stop obsfuscating.

You still haven't answered my question.

If south Fulton is so gung ho about creating a new city, then why are a growing number of meetings being put together by local homeowners' associations and community groups seeking information on joining an existing city?

Re: “Farewell, Fulton?

Misinformation, according to James Reese, is information he doesn't agree with.

The question for James Reese and his pro-city pals, who are engaging in Pelosi Politics to pass a bill so that people can have a chance to learn what's in it, is if south Fulton is so gung ho about creating a new city, then why are a growing number of meetings being put together by local homeowners' associations and community groups seeking information on joining an existing city?

Re: “Farewell, Fulton?

Based on recent meetings and public comments, one thing can be certain -- not everyone is sold on the idea of creating the city of South Fulton.

College Park City Council member Tracey Wyatt says he's received emails from residents exploring annexation into his city. And today, Home Rule News reports the Loch Lomond community, located on the west side of unincorporated south Fulton County, may be ready to join the city of Atlanta.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed made his pitch Monday night.

“I would just love for Loch Lomond to come into the city. I am not going to coerce anyone to come in,” Reed said.

He added that Atlanta has the brand and reputation of being solid and experienced, something that the City of South Fulton cannot deliver.

“Imagine trying to sell your house as a property in the City of South Fulton,” he said. “You will be in a startup city with questionable finances and city workers who don’t know your area. Your taxes will have to go up.”

Pro-city legislators and organizations have repeatedly asserted that unincorporated south Fulton citizens want a chance to vote on creating a new city. These claims continue in the face of a growing number of meetings put together by local homeowners' associations and community groups seeking information on joining an existing city.
