Disgusted by Lee’s coercion

It is with total disgust and with a continuing sense of futility that I am again writing to vent my feelings at Chairman Tim Lee’s efforts to coerce Commissioner Lisa Cupid to “hold off” on her choice of Lance Lamberton to serve on the SPLOST oversight committee. Lee was elected to represent all the Cobb taxpayers, not just the cronies who get SPLOST contracts with our additional tax dollars.

Lamberton is an honorable man who is truly concerned with how Cobb County citizens are being burdened year after year with additional taxes. Has Lee ever considered how much better Cobb would become if each day, all politicians, supposedly servants of the people, adopted the attitude of, “Ask what I can do for Cobb, not what can Cobb do for me?”

Who are the other spineless wonders on the BOC who chose to remain silent when Lee pushed his authority to try to squelch the Lamberton appointment? He chose to do this clandestinely rather than in an open meeting. What does this say about his integrity?

There remain thousands of citizens who genuinely believe in fiscal responsibility in government and deserve at least one voice speaking on their behalf serving on the SPLOST oversight committee.
