On July 31, voters in Brookhaven and Chamblee, as well as the rest of the 10-county metro region, will cast their ballots on the Transportation Investment Act to decide whether to establish a one-cent special transportation sales tax on themselves to fund various transportation projects.
It reads: “Provides for local transportation projects to create jobs and reduce traffic congestion with citizen oversight”
Attorney Pitts Carr told WSB-TV, “Create jobs? Stop congestion? Who wouldn’t vote for that?”
The attorney has been hired by referendum opponents to find out how that language, which was OK’d by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, was approved for the ballot when it was not part of the original law.
