A Brookhaven Agenda

In the aftermath of Tuesday's cityhood vote, a resident offers his priorities for Brookhaven as it moves forward.

The debate over the form of governance for the Brookhaven community has helped to coalesce a set of priorites:

  1. upgrade our parks, playgrounds, and greenspace;
  2. increase the presence of police on patrol in our neighborhoods;
  3. commit to, and extend the Living Centers Initiative;
  4. improve the Buford Highway corridor through fair and reasonable code enforcement; and
  5. plan and maintain an aggressive program of roadway maintenance.

Yea I was thinking that might work to slow down the Dunwoody parents racing through Murphey Candler to get their kids to their Little League games.

"Is that what you have been talking about all this time? My apologies I didn't realize that because the Consulate for Mexico..." To correct your down-playing: It is the Consulate of Mexico. No entity other than the MxGov is the "Consulate for Mexico." "...where a citizen of Mexico can go to get a passport or other papers..." Really? And, upon arrival, legally or illegally (as long instructed in Mexico by the MxGov) directly to the Mexican Consulates themselves to there report their arrivals, in part, by then obtaining their (2nd) Matricular IDs (as "prepared" by its same Institute de Mexico) and, from there, and as previously instructed in Mexico also, obtain (dual) U.S. Citizenship, and thus (at least some overt) voter privileges, remain vigilant of bulletins directing just who and what to vote in US elections, including, referendums. Even register, at the MxConsulate, infants born to a Mexican parent as Mexico's nationals----whether the millions sent were or remain even willing and mostly not to leave Mexico to begin with; plus... ".. is not in the city of Brookhaven but across I-85 on Chantilly Drive near Cheshire Bridge and the Instituto de Mexico is also not in Brookhaven but also across I-85 in Executive Park at 17 Executive Drive...." Finally I've elicited a response from you on anything including---how many months now?---the same question....

...Which hardly relieves anyone holding public office, elected or appointed, anywhere in GA, from not upholding the Constitution of the United States by, at best, allowing the MxGov to have been granted "incorporation" papers (as early as "2002" while on Apple Valley Way) in the State of GA, USA, to have the "incorporation" be renewed annually and (as early as "2004" while on Apple Valley Way) be provided, have and use voter registration forms of the State of GA. Yes? Or No? To instead allow themselves to propose, manage and impose elections and referendum still without relief. Yes? Or No? Thank you for your paragraphs of street directions and hotel/bar ratings. Despite your obvious investment, simply not germane.

THIS is exactly why I voted NO. I doubt that the overgrown sidewalks will be a high priority for the New City of Brookhaven. I am sure first priority will putting the "good old boys club" in their proper power positions so that they can start stealing land through code enforcement and build sanitized "Town of Brookhaven" plazas and other real estate projects. Not to mention finding a nice site for the new Brookhaven City hall and Police barracks.
