As we enter the fourth and final quarter of our campaign, scoring the winning touchdown is clearly within our means. What seemed 15 months ago like an impossible dream of unseating a well-funded incumbent is looming as a disconcerting reality to the moneyed interests behind him. All our efforts during the cold days of January and February are bearing fruit as shown by the steady receipt of contributions, requests for yard signs, and registration of volunteers. Our team of volunteers have been hearing wonderful words of encouragement and support on their telephone calls and canvassing with the voters at their doors. The recent endorsement by the local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police for our campaign shows that our officers understand and are confident in my commitment to making them the best trained, equipped, led, and paid police in Georgia.
Our message that the people of Cobb who were allowed to vote on two $40 million park bonds should have also been allowed to vote on a $350 million stadium bond resonates with almost everyone with whom we have spoken. Voters understand that my promise to lead an open and transparent government based on trust and integrity will ensure that there will be no more secret deals using our tax money.
I am truly inspired by the truly impressive efforts of our team in contacting voters. But we cannot let up! We continue to need your help with donations and volunteering in our Get Out The Vote effort leading up to the Primary which is a mere 2 weeks away. The winds of change are in the air. I am asking you to become part of making history in Cobb County in showing that the power of government resides in the voices of the people through their votes. It is a power that cannot be bought but earned. Together I know and am confident we can do this!!
