Food, Politics and TSPLOST in East Cobb
Monday's campaign events include the Paper Mill Village Food Truck and a TSPLOST Town Hall meeting.
The final full week of campaigning before the July 31 primary starts off with a bang on Monday in East Cobb.
A number of candidates will be appearing at the Paper Mill Village Food Truck from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The food truck has become a regular event in East Cobb, featuring Mighty Meatballs, Tex’s Tacos, Honeysuckle Gelato, Yumbii, Brian’s Texas Hots, King of Pops and Happy Belly.
Longtime Atlanta radio personality Gary McKee will be the emcee for the event. The candidates will take the stage at 6 p.m. Paper Mill Village is located at 137 Johnson Ferry Road, at the intersection of Paper Mill Road.
“We think the political forum will be a great complement to the food truck fair,” said Lisa Graham, who handles property management and leasing for Healey Weatherholz Properties at Paper Mill Village. “We value the relationship we have with Cobb County residents and are continuously looking for ways to engage with the community.”
At 7 p.m., District 2 Cobb Commissioner Bob Ott will hold a town hall meeting on the TSPLOST referendum at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church.
Representatives from both sides will be featured, including TSPLOST proponents Chuck Clay, a former Cobb legislator, and longtime Atlanta radio traffic reporter Herb Emory.
TSPLOST opponents include Smyrna activist Ron Sifen and State Rep. Ed Setzler of North Cobb, chairman of the Cobb legislative delegation.
Mt. Bethel is located at 4385 Lower Roswell Road in East Cobb.
Voting takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
