Commissioner Robinson is running for re-election and trying to create issues where none exist. Yes, he voted against the re-districting map but DID NOT object to it when it went to the General Assembly's Redistricting Committee or when the local legislative delegation asked for comments. He ONLY started raising hell when the new map had to be put into use so that this year's elections could occur. His objection is that the new map allowed former Commissioner Freddie Ashmon to run against him instead of him being unopposed. Commissioner Robinson's business has gone under, and he has been kicked out of his house and his apartment. He is trying to create some furor so that people will contribute to his campaign. The word "slum" is in the legislation. Commissioner Robinson - you can attract more support with honey instead of vinegar.

Looking at a map of Georgia will show that all Interstates flow into/out of Atlanta. A motorist cannot get through the State on a decent road without going through Atlanta. The GDOT has created this problem, and the TSPLOST does not address the root cause. There are no plans in the TSPLOST to build a limited access highway from Columbus to Macon to Augusta, from Augusta to Savannah, or a bypass around Atlanta going north-south. The TSPLOST list is trying to fix problems the currently exist but does not plan for the future. There will be no money for these projects.
