The Brookhaven Cityhood campaign saw proponents of the city saying Yes! and opponents of the city saying NO! The ironic thing is - the were both saying the same thing!
If you were FOR the city - while you may have been "saying Yes" - you may not have realized you actually were saying "No" to the county government and "No" to the representatives in your respective District. Where "Yes" comes into the equation, is in order to get loose from the county on some level, there had to be an alternative source of the services the county provides to it's citizens. In the case of Brookhaven, after no-one else would take us via annexation, the "only choice" was to create a municipality to "free ourselves"...or was it?
In an email from Kathie Gannon, Super District 6, dated August 26, 2011 - (WHICH BY THE WAY WAS NEVER RESPONDED TO BY C4ND) - to the Citizens of North Dekalb where she reaches out to the organization to request them to engage in a cooperative partnership with the county to come to a solution together.
One of those solutions to enhance the service offerings in the North Dekalb Area would be to create a Special Services Tax District - which is a highly encouraging scenario whereas the residents of a particular area can frame out the enhancements they want, and then works with the county to come up with a cost model.
Rebecca Chase Williams, Mike Jacobs and our very own J Max Davis, refused to even engage in dialog with the county to discuss alternatives. From the very beginning there was no attempt to alert the people in our area who were asking for improved or enhanced services. C$ND, Mike Jacobs, J Max Davis and Rebecca Chase Williams sole objective was to create a city and try to make "their mark."
These people are absolutely not interested in full disclosure and/or transparency. They are out for themselves and that is a cold hard fact.
On November 6th:
• Vote YES to Truth and Honesty.
• Vote YES to Transparency and Integrity.
• Vote YES to an achievable Brookhaven model.
AND VOTE NO! to those who attempt to deceive you at all costs to forward their own personal agendas at the expense of the Amazing People of Brookhaven!
Do not be intimidated into to sacrificing your morals and beliefs - not only for yourself - but for your friends and families as well.
