AUGUST 2017 DISTRICT 4 NEWSLETTER

NEW SENIOR CENTER VOTE – The BOC chose to locate the new SPLOST- funded senior center in Lithia Springs with Commissioners Romona Jones, Kelly Robinson, and Henry Mitchell, III, making the decision under the protest of Commissioners Mulcare and Guider.  This vote was contrary to the Citizens Selection Committee’s recommendation that it be built on the WESTERN SIDE of the county. This now will have all 3 senior centers located within District 1 (Commissioner Henry Mitchell, III) and all three north of I-20.

Commissioner Robinson admits to trying to bring MARTA in on proposed  FLEX bus system (originally for disabled persons and seniors) working behind the scenes and trying to make it appear that our DOT Staff had initiated contact with them.  This is NOT transparency and has placed staff in a very embarrassing and difficult position.
