At a recent Chamber of Commerce breakfast, our legislative delegation discussed some of their future goals for Clayton county.
As per the Clayton News-Daily local state representatives Glenn Baker and Robert Abdul-Salaam along with a newly elected Atlanta state representative, would like to see House Bill 277 pass returning public transportation back to Clayton along with a one-percent sales tax to pay for it. Rep. Baker also mentions $2 billion in uncollected state taxes that could help to pay for public transit. Rep. Darryl Jordan added that we need to find ways to make Clayton more appealing to tourists and bring revenue and businesses back to the county.
What are other concerns and/or issues you would like to see our legislators address and accomplish for Clayton county? If their goals don’t align with yours as a constituent, and especially if they do, make sure to let them know before the new legislative session begins on January 11, 2011.
