Despite what some may say yesterday’s Primary Election did not determine the fate of the free world. TSPLOST passed in only 3 of the 12 districts across Georgia. Where we go from here will be debated and talked about in the coming months. Despite what proponents said, there is always a Plan B. It may be better than Plan A or it may be worse. Time will tell.
I have been saying for some time now that voters still have tremendous power in our political system. Voters don’t need to match the dollars others may have to express their will. If last night’s TSPLOST results prove anything it is that money doesn’t always win and when voters are engaged they prevail. This holds true in campaigns and when talking about lobbyist spending under the Gold Dome.
The need for real solutions still exists. We can only reach those solutions if we Elected Officials earn voters trust again and you voters allow us to earn your trust. Let’s work together to address our transportation problems in a real and lasting way. We won’t all get everything we want but we can act in the best interests of Georgia.
