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.

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?

I look forward to hearing from you. Just click on the Contact info tab and leave your comment under Ask Mike.

As you can tell from the pictures, this past week was a combination of attending formal events and being updated on issues involving Cobb County and traveling around Cobb and meeting residents where they work or meet. Lots of great people doing lots of great things.
