Representatives from a variety of organizations and perspectives on the upcoming TSPLOST referendum have been invited to gather in East Cobb later this month for a town hall meeting.
District 2 Cobb Commissioner Bob Ott will be the host for the July 23 event, scheduled for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at , 4385 Lower Roswell Road.
The town hall takes place the week before the July 31 referendum on the Transportation Investment Act, which will be decided by metro Atlanta voters, including those in Cobb.
Untie Atlanta, one of the leading groups in favor of the penny sales tax, will be represented by Chuck Clay, a former legislator from Cobb and a partner with the Brock Clay law firm in Marietta, and Terry Lawler, executive director of the Regional Business Coalition.
Also participating will be TSPLOST opponents Ron Sifen, a transportation activist from the Smyrna-Vinings area, and State Rep. Ed Setzler, chairman of the Cobb legislative delegation who attempted to delay the referendum.
