So Deal's hand picked successor for the one he fired now says he is a crook??? How much more money and evidence is it going to take to convince voters???
I'd say Hambrick and Edmondson are toast as far as getting re-elected. I think Singleton was at least smart enough that enough people were starting to dig to figure out if she had entered into some sort of deal with "opponents" (namely railroad and road interests) associated with Michael Hightower for which she has received substantial "campaign donations". This takes some of that zeal away
Clayton Co corruption...follow the money. These 3 have obviously been paid off. There is no other rational reason for them to vote no. If it can be proven they did...dont throw them out of office. Throw them in jail!
The Clayton County Board of Commissioners will hold a Special Called Meeting on Saturday, July 5, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. in the Commissioners’ Boardroom at 112 Smith Street, in Jonesboro, Georgia, to consider matters pertaining to public transportation in the County. All citizens are welcome to attend.
This will be the FINAL meeting that determines whether Clayton County gets a MARTA referendum this November!
As I have always said in these threads...never underestimate the stupidity of the Clayton Co board and their ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. If I lived in Clayton right now, I'd be sharpening the spikes on the pitchforks with designs on 3 commissioners who undoubtedly are serving their last term in office. You dont just screw the people you represent in hopes they wont notice on something this important.
Never under estimate Clayton Co's ability to wrestle defeat from the jaws of victory. Call me a skeptic, but this wont be a done deal till it gets on the ballot. Also, why in the heck are they arguing over a penny or half. All the other MARTA members pay 1 full cent...they should too. Most of their sales tax revenue comes from the airport anyway, not residents
I still think that Brookhaven committed fraud by using revenue from the PP in their viability study, if they knew they would be eliminating it. I'm sure the picture would have been less rosey and the city less viable and perhaps they might not have had the votes to become a city in the first place. Needless to say fighting the PP isnt cheap, for a new city getting off the ground, at least
