Now to make this whole debate worse, Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee proves that he just doesn’t get why certain residents are upset. As a voter, I honestly don’t care if the stadium funding is purportedly revenue neutral in terms of increased taxes to most residents. I am more concerned that this deal is being thrust upon we who particularly live near the site with little public input and how my current quality of life will be deteriorated.
This action to reveal and rubber stamp the deal with less than one month’s notice is nothing but smoke-filled room politics. If the Commission does not delay this vote to permit more public input then I will vote against both Chairman Lee and Commissioner Bob Ott at the next election.
