TSPLOST proponents have a lot of work to do in the next four months if the reaction at East Cobb forums is an accurate reflection of public opinion about the regional 1-cent sales tax for transportation projects.
That work is well underway.
Financed by the Metro Atlanta Voter Education Network, or MAVEN, the four-page brochure follows the suburban story line of the TV commercials you may have seen in favor of the Transportation Improvement Act:
- We average an hour a day in traffic, which over a year is roughly a month and a half of 40-hour workweeks sitting in a car, doing nothing.
- While we're stuck in traffic, our kids are suffering alone.
- The TSPLOST can save us time and money and transform our lives.
In short, as the tagline on the bag of the brochure say, "Less traffic = more time at home."
What do you think of the brochure? Will anything you receive in the mail affect how you'll vote on the TSPLOST referendum July 31?
