Those of us who voted NO on the T-SPLOST referendum have one more battle to fight. That will occur on August 21.
WE must finish the job by voting out one of the sponsors of the the plan that would have done so much harm to our area and we would have to pay for it to boot. I refer here to Cobb County Commissioner Chair Tim Lee.
He has been in the pocket of the well heeled forces that tried to shove this ill conceived albatross down our throats. You do that by being one of the few who are willing to go to the polls August 21 and vote for Bill Byrne who steadfastly braved the special interests by opposing the T-SPLOST.
Election officials tell us that only about 10% of the eligible voters will vote. That means if you vote your ballot will count for that much more. In effect, your neighbors who don't vote give you their proxy. By all means take it. Just think of the power that you will have so please do so and urge those who did vote July 31 to go with you.
Thanks for reading,
