Questioning does not a land-grabber make


March 16, 2006
I believe that questioning authority is a virtue in a democracy. Those in authority often disagree.

When I questioned the boundaries of the City of Johns Creek and proposed that the citizens of Newtown be given a choice between Johns Creek and Roswell, I was accused of "land grabbing."

When I questioned the failure of the Johns Creek fiscal viability study to include any start-up costs, I was accused of being opposed to the City of Johns Creek.

When I questioned why there is a gap of many months between the date Johns Creek becomes a city and the effective date of zoning and other laws governing the new city, I was accused of "a pathetic attempt to fill my piggy bank."

Now that the Legislature has effectively excluded Roswell as a choice for the citizens of Newtown, I am told to cease asking any more questions. As long as my questions go unanswered, they will continue to be asked. Unquestioning loyalty to authority is not a virtue that I share with my friends in the State Legislature.

As long as I am Mayor of the City of Roswell, I will continue to zealously represent my hometown, regardless of criticism and threats from those whose loyalties lie elsewhere.
