The ARC Is Not Your Friend

The ARC Is Not Your Friend

The Atlanta Regional Commission was created by act of the Georgia general assembly as a regional planning body.  From the website:

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the regional planning and intergovernmental coordination agency for the 10-county area including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties, as well as the City of Atlanta.

ARC is dedicated to unifying the region's collective resources to prepare the metropolitan area for a prosperous future. It does so through professional planning initiatives, the provision of objective information and the involvement of the community in collaborative partnerships.

The stated mission of the ARC is to demonstrate professional and forward looking leadership to ensure sustainable growth and competitive advantage by focusing and balancing Environmental Responsibility, Economic Growth, and Social Needs.

Media & Dems cannot handle Herman Cain

Media & Dems cannot handle Herman Cain

Read the Associated Press/GfK poll numbers released last Monday.  Check out the CNN/Opinion research.  Romney and Cain are within a couple points of each other (CNN: Cain 26%, Romney 25%), while Perry fell to third place (13%) with half the percentage of Cain’s new status.

Recall the campaigns of 1968.  Dick Nixon’s people wanted to run against George McGovern. McGovern’s anti-war position allowed Nixon’s team to portray him as weak. Nixon won the election in a landslide, with 60.7% of the popular vote, only slightly lower than Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 but with a larger margin of victory in the popular vote (23.2%), the fourth largest in presidential election history. He received almost 18 million more popular votes than McGovern—the widest margin of any U.S. presidential election.

Bridgefest in the Pines

Bridgefest in the Pines

The City of Stockbridge held its first ever Fall Festival at Clark Community Park on October 1st.  The city touted the festival asthe must attend event of the fall and will host a variety of art & unique craft vendors, a business showcase, an entertainment stage, a children’s area and more.”   Between the hours of 9am till noon the number of people attending were far outnumbered by those working the booths. 

The variety of art and unique craft vendors were not seen.  Several local businesses were on hand to promote products and services.  The entertainment lineup featured nine acts throughout the day  and the first up, The Serenaders, were very well received.

Several candidates for city council were also on hand.  And in this publication readers know that is the real motivation for this article!
