Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Metro Atlanta Chamber President Sam Williams were among supporters of the regional transportation sales tax referendum who lobbied for its passage Tuesday night in Alpharetta.
The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce held a fundraiser to answer questions about the TSPLOST referendum, which will go before voters July 31. They also were ready to collect checks on behalf of Citizens for Transportation Mobility to continue what they call an education process.
Thus far, the proposed 10-county, 10-year, 1 percent sales tax for transportation projects has not proved popular in Cherokee County.
How will you vote on the TSPLOST referendum July 31? Why?
Andy Macke, who heads the North Fulton Chamber’s push to get the 1 percent regional sales tax passed, touted a predicted 4-to-1 return on investment for the estimated $8 billion collected over 10 years.
