If everything in recent Atlanta newspaper stories is factual and true, then Tim Lee appears to be in serious trouble. In spite of his excuses and about-face remarks, his actions are not suitable and shouldn’t be tolerated by the board of commissioners or the public. He has apparently lied to the commissioners and the public for nearly a year and is no longer trustworthy. At a minimum, his actions were unprincipled, inappropriate and improper.

If it turns out that he has broken any laws or violated his oath of office as chairman of the Cobb commission, he should forfeit his office and accept any resulting mandatory disciplinary action. Cobb citizens deserve a better and honest leader.

And now it also looks like the Cobb Chamber of Commerce were co-conspirators in Lee’s shifty and shady scheme to bring the Atlanta Braves to Cobb County.

Who knows, it might have been their idea and plan in the first place, allowing Lee to be their scapegoat.

Backdoor Dealing

Since the dirt moving has started and companies are already on board to build this disaster, the taxpayers of Cobb County are already screwed. And this is what politicians know. They work out controversial projects and changes in secret and use the current laws and regulations to implement them.

You might get a politician out of office or even in jail, but the taxpayer is still left with the mess AND the debt. The solution is to change the process so taxpayers have a say so.
