It’s election day in many cities across Georgia. What’s going on in your neck of the woods?
Here in Gwinnett every Mayor’s seat and many City Council seats are up for grabs. Snellville and Suwanee have garnered attention but in Norcross, long time Mayor Lillian Webb has drawn two challengers including Bucky Johnson, the former band director at Georgia Tech. Several cities also have ballot initiatives:
Those voters (in Duluth) will decide on a new mayor, a city council seat and a proposal that would give Duluth leaders authority to draw up plans for tax allocation districts, special funding districts in which governments can siphon off increases in tax collections resulting from rising property values and use the money to help pay for redevelopment work.
Such proposals are also on the ballot in Dacula, Lilburn, Loganville, Norcross, Sugar Hill and Suwanee.
I’ll be interested to see how these “TAD” votes come out.
