There is more to being a city than having a "sports complex" http://www.dunwoodyfarmerbob.com/2011/11/forceful-advocate-or-bully.html

I voted at Dunwoody Elementary around 11:20. The elections officials indicated heavy voting all morning. This is wonderful news. Hopefully, it is the same city-wide.

One candidate clearly has a sign person as their campaign manager and has several obnoxiously large signs. A little over the top.

Got to see Mike Davis, Bob Dallas, Terry Nall, and Kerry de Vallette out campaigning this morning....I'm sure the others were out too. It's exciting to see how motivated people are by making Dunwoody a great City!

Are you kidding Michelle? I guess we know who YOU are voting for now. I thought the large signs were tasteful, and cool. Guess you know who I'M voting for now.

I wrote in and voted for Jack Wagon against John "Mr Transparency" Heneghan

Both park bonds will add 1.5 mills or about $250/yr for average Dunwoody home, The increased value of your home when you sell it will far out weigh this nominal amount.

NO new taxes! (Even in our new city of Dunwoody.)
Sandra November 09, 2011 at 12:40 AM
who is Michelle talking about???
Erika November 09, 2011 at 12:40 AM
Cheers to that Sandra!

If the taxes keep going up (between city and county), I may be forced to rent my home. I just might make a qualifier in the lease that I'll only rent to people who were displaced by the parks. Surely a couple/few families could more than afford the rent I'll ask and have plenty of room for their families. And, BTW, keep adding nominal amounts up and they aren't so nominal any more. I wonder how maintenance, lighting, and security will be paid for--other "nominal amounts", Sandra? Hopefully, that won't be a worry when the sun comes up.

Looks like SPLOST may pass and we will get a new 900 seat Austin Elementary!

Great job, Peter!
Lindsay Ballow November 09, 2011 at 01:27 PM
And you too Adrianne!!

Anne what are you talking about - a 900 seat Austin Elementary? Where are you going to put a 900 seat school by I285, as has been discussed, sure will not be called Austin Elementary! Hopefully they will build us a 600 seat (like Smokerise) Austin Elementary on the current site.

lbauman, The county 's 2020 Vision plan utilizes a larger elementary school format ( 900+ students). Larger schools are able to maximize state funding and help reduce the amount of local funding needed to provide services. Our Board Rep, Nancy Jester, has stated that Dunwoody needs more seats. I really don't think Austin will or can be rebuilt at 600 seats.
