Two Cobb County business owners are featured in a new video released this week in favor of the March 19 Cobb Education SPLOST IV referendum.
The United 4 Kids Campaign is working on passing the sales tax extension, which would fund $772 million in construction and maintenance costs for the Cobb County School District and Marietta City Schools between 2014-2018.
They repeat many of the points made by school district officials and others in support of the SPLOST referendum, especially the Cobb district's debt-free status and the county's property tax exemption for homeowners age 62 and over.
"Vote yes for continued community pride and good property values," Loud says near the end of the video.
The United 4 Kids Campaign also has a Facebook page.
Opponents of the referendum, including the Cobb Taxpayers Association, say the SPLOST project list is loaded with "wants" more than needed projects. They have scheduled a rally for Sunday on the Marietta Square.
Advance voting continues through next week at various satellite locations throughtout Cobb.
