Brookhaven's Pete Cabrelli took matters into his own hands Friday afternoon. Using asphalt and other materials he bought at a home improvement store, the Stratfield Drive resident - replete in a white shirt and red tie - made a much-publicized repair to a pothole in his neighborhood.
11Alive reported that a DeKalb County spokesman dismissed the event, calling it "a political stunt." A team of six county workers removed the material that Cabrelli had put in place, and also filled other problem spots in the Stratfield Drive subdivision, according to the AJC.
But Carbrelli, who said he favors incorporation, said he was simply trying to keep his neighborhood safe and was tired of making complaints to the county and receiving no repsonse. County spokesman Burke Brennan said no such complaints have been found on file.
So Patch wants to know, what do you think about Pothole Pete's repair job? Was this a matter of civic pride, or a political stunt?
