Weekly Update for April 26

Another week that saw me not only meeting voters but also took me to Greenville, SC.  I learned how the city lost their Braves minor league team over a dispute about funding a new stadium and acquired another minor league team whose organization built the stadium for the city.  They also threw in some trolley’s as shuttles as part of the deal . If this sounds familiar, it should.

But the most inspiring event was being at the finish line at the Shepherd Center on Sunday when the Shepherd’s Men–12 veterans–completed their 911 mile run from New York City to support a fund raising campaign for the Shepherd Center. America still makes warriors like they used to–and these heroes proved it.

One word summarizes my travels around Cobb this week: Fun I participated in many programs this week that exemplified the many, many ways that people in Cobb enrich the lives of others either through informational forums, volunteer projects, and political activity.

Also gratifying this week was that no matter where I went, I encountered friends and supporters. It is becoming increasingly clear to me that many people believe it is time for a change in the leadership of Cobb government. I am asking them to make Boyce their Choice. Your voice matters and I am asking you to join our team by clicking on the volunteer button.

Weekly update for April 13

Spring Break in Cobb County empties the roads as voters leave town for vacations. But there were still many opportunities to visit senior citizens and be a guest at veterans programs during the week.

We are signing up more volunteers every week as well as voters asking to be added to our email list for updates. Likewise, our Facebook page is adding followers every day.

You are all important and I want you on our team. Make Boyce your choice by joining us to make a difference and statement in 2016.


Weekly Update for April 3

This week saw me traveling north and south in Cobb–from Acworth through Kennesaw and along South Cobb Drive into South Cobb as I rode a bus on one of the Cobb County Transit routes.

My travels had me crossing paths with legislators with both local and national prominence.  I was able to connect with voters in classrooms, restaurants, hotels, buses, in their church communities, and at the State Capitol.  I am reminded daily that there are so many good people in Cobb County.  They deserve to expect the best from their public officials.

Be part of writing the future history of Cobb by joining our campaign.  In 2016 you have a choice.  Make Boyce that choice.

Weekly update for March 29

I continue to travel around Cobb and meet people where they work and play. As I spend time with them, I appreciate more and more how hard they work, how much they enjoy what they are doing, and how much they care about this County.

Whether it be in a Starbucks or a local meeting, I continue to be heartened by the number of people who recognize me and more importantly come up to speak to me. Their actions reinforce the lesson I learned earlier that if you have time for them, they have time for you.

The Chairman last week tabled his proposals for a Homestead Optional Sales Tax and a Bus Rapid Transit system (by definition in the Atlanta Regional Commission Plan 2040 Framework a “fixed guide-way transit concept”). Am I the only one that finds this interesting coming on the heels of the announcement of our Exploratory Committee?
