Atlanta Transportation "T-SPLOST" has a lot of politics going on!
"do any of you know who is bank-rolling the ads in favor of voting yes on the transportation initiative? it's a suspiciously large amount of funding for this type of thing. why wouldn't they be more forthcoming about the source of the money?"
No sooner did I ask, I found the answer on an unrelated site in an ad.
"interestingly, i found the answer online on a news site i was reading. http://untieatlanta.com/ is their site. "Paid for by Citizens for Transportation Mobility. Dave Stockert, Chairman". dave stockert is the ceo of post properties. the following is conjecture, but i bet there will be post apartments very close to many of the rail line stops. that would explain why they're so interested in getting this passed."
I also added a mention to this blog post in a subsequent comment.
"this is an interesting treatise of the initiative in general (the author ultimately will vote ___ didn't want to spoil) http://tropicsofmeta.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/is-the-beltline-bad-for-atlanta/"
