Since the 1970s, a group of concerned business leaders in south Cobb have been gathering regularly to map out a vision for our little neck of the woods that we call home.
We’ve been through a lot over these four decades, even electing one of us as governor of this great state.
The one defining belief that has carried us through the years is that our mission had to be bigger than just our community. The old saying goes that a rising tide floats all boats, and we always believed that a growing, prosperous county and region meant positive things would happen in south Cobb.
That is why I am so enthusiastic about the July Regional Transportation Referendum. Our region has been hit harder than most with the recent economic downturn, and it will take a Herculean effort to turn it around. I can’t think of a better way to spur a rebound than investing in our transportation system.
The numbers are there for us to see: more than 200,000 jobs will be supported, and I believe many more will move to Georgia when they see we are finally addressing our notorious traffic congestion. I hope you will join me in supporting the Regional Transportation Referendum on July 31. Our region’s economy is depending on your support.
