The proposed TSPLOST faced a lot of flak in East Cobb last year as the project list—with its on-again, off-again light-rail line—headed toward completion. It looks as if feelings haven't softened with the vote now four months away.
The July 31 referendum to create a regional transportation special-purpose, local-option sales tax came under attack during an Atlanta Regional Commission forum Wednesday night at the East Cobb Library, The Marietta Daily Journal reported.
Among those who attended and declared their intentions to vote no July 31 were two men who plan to be on the Republican ballot for county commission chairman the same day, Larry Savage and Mike Boyce, the MDJ said.
Meanwhile, the man they're trying to unseat as chairman, TSPLOST proponent Tim Lee, quietly observed Wednesday's forum, the MDJ said.
East Cobb Patch has been home to a healthy TSPLOST debate, including columnist Tim Langley and blogger Mike Holzknecht. Holzknecht also expressed his TSPLOST support in today's MDJ article.
So has any of the discussion the past year changed your mind? How do you plan to vote on the 1-cent, 10-year sales tax?
