T-SPLOST: There are few projects that would fall within the city limits of Dunwoody. However the regional one-percent tax would fund a total $8.5 billion in improvements over the next 10 years on I-285 at Ga. 400, I-85 at I-285, $600 million in MARTA improvements and an intelligent traffic system in the Perimeter area.
Dunwoody would also grab it's share of the 15 percent of the tax's total that would be given out to local governments.
DeKalb County Commissioner District 1 race: Incumbent Elaine Boyer faces opposition in the July 31 Republican primary from Larry Danese, a former Democrat. Danese served as Commissioner Kathie Gannon's representative on the county's planning commission before losing to Boyer for the District 1 seat in 2008 as a Democrat.
President Barack Obama and GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney: DeKalb votes heavily Democratic both locally and nationally. Obama carried the county in 2008 by almost 190,000 votes. Dunwoody tends to vote Republican. Despite Newt Gingrich's Georgia advantage, Romney won the county's vote by more than 1,200 votes in the GOP presidential primary.
