Is this project connected to TSPLOST in any financial chicanery
? If this gets the federal go ahead days before the vote, will that make people more willing to vote no and wait for a bill that isn't so horrible to come along? Here's the top 10 lies about the transpo bill
The distribution of voting rights among the counties is totally undemocratic and regressive. Supposedly based on population it was decided that Fulton county having two votes was fair. What no one is talking about is the reformation of Milton county is going to happen much sooner than later. Then Fulton county will have one vote just like all the other, despite having as much as 5x population.
If we vote NO on tsplost then there will be a much better version of the bill on the ballot next year. The distribution of voting rights among the counties as the bill stands is totally undemocratic and regressive.
I don't believe transportation is a human right, but I do believe public transit in Georgia is based on taxing the poor. Let's get this federal paycheck and negotiate a better deal for ourselves.
Don't take the power away from those who need progressive/modern transit most. This subsidy in the Gulch is going to change things big time. Let's not jump the gun and vote for the first little scrap they throw our way.
