'Transportation Referendum Will Shape Atlanta's Future'
District 6 Sen. Doug Stoner will make opening remarks at tonight's forum held at Georgia Tech on the transportation referendum vote.
Thursday evening, the Georgia Tech Business Network will host a public forum on the upcoming transportation referendum vote. The 6:30 p.m. event will be at LeCraw Auditorim located in the Georgia Tech College of Management at 800 West Peachtree Street.
Senator Doug Stoner, Democratic Caucus Chairman, Georgia State Senate, will make opening remarks. Stoner's redrawn District 6 now includes part of Buckhead.
The panelists include Mark Toro, Managing Partner, North American Properties; Dave Williams, Vice President of Transportation, Metro Atlanta Chamber; and Debbie Dooley, National Coordinator, Tea Party Patriots. Catherine Ross who chairs the Center for Quality Growth & Regional Development at Georgia Tech, will serve as the moderator.
Meanwhile, Atlanta commercial real estate services provider Cassidy Turley has released the second of its 10 videos as part of its campaign supporting the passage of metro Atlanta’s historic TSPLOST ballot initiative.
Each week until the July 31 vote, Cassidy Turley will release a two-minute video featuring an interview with a prominent Atlanta business or community leader to educate the public about the importance of the TSPLOST initiative, which would fund a series of transportation projects aimed at alleviating the traffic congestion plaguing metro Atlanta.
The videos will appear on Cassidy Turley’s new “Why Atlanta?” blog.
This week, John Robbins, managing director of Granite Properties, gives three reasons why he is voting yes for the upcoming transportation referendum: it will ease congestion, create jobs, and enhance the overall quality of life for residents of the Atlanta Region.
If the vote were today, how would you vote and why?
