It is pretty obvious Imker is working toward another run for office.

He is desperately trying to reinvent himself and escape his history. That cannot be allowed.

On the recent issues of council wanting to move from village concept to a downtown, Imker was silent. That is because he opposes the village concept.

Looking for something else I stumbled across this.

Please indulge me for a point of personal privilege to respond to those few council supporters who attacked me with incomplete claims.

This shows the efforts to suppress First Amendment rights of elected officials and citizens is not new in Peachtree City.

Beware of those who love to label those who disagree with them as being negative.

This is for Mike LaTella who keeps trying to reinvent history.

He was the chairman of the old ethics committee and found me guilty before any meeting had taken place and never took place.

For those who were not aware, the councilmembers had to retract, in writing, all their actions and claims.

Simple fact is they broke the law and lied based on Imker's claim I did not have the resources to do anything about it.

Well, I do and did and they lost.

Look at the 2014 budget on the city website. You see that the mayor and council salaries doubled from 2013.

Put it simply, Imker lied about the salary in 2009.

I have the proven experience and know-how on making sure our tax dollars are wisely spent. Nobody can come close to my fiscal acumen and making sure the citizens know how their tax dollars are being spent, i.e., transparency.
Only in Imker's mind.

And once again Imker gets it wrong.

Mike King proposed even years, not Imker. Nor did the proposal get three votes to pass it on to the legislature.

As well, the process is Council passes and then submits to the state legislature. If they approve it has to go on a voter referendum.

It has been submitted in the past but the legislature always says no.
Additionally, to make it work terms have to be shortened, they cannot be lengthened, to change the rotation.
The legislature prefers a 5 vote, but does not require it.

There is nowhere to build a bypass without taking a ton of private property and destroying homes and businesses.

GDOT Mtg at PTC Library about 74/54, 1/23/20, 5-7PM
Be there. Tell them not to waste $9,000,000 with the do nothing changes, make zero difference being proposed.
Instead, tell them to invest that money on a bypass around PTC between Fayetteville and Newnan.

To all my Friends - A favor please.
Since many of us are at home and using Facebook, please take a minute and write to your own timeline asking your friends that live in Peachtree City, GA (or neighboring cities) to "Friend" me,
Eric Imker .
This in light of my decision to run for Mayor next year.
I'm mostly interested in Peachtree City, Georgia residents of course however those in other nearby cities may have friends or relatives that live in PTC. (Always thinking!)
No time like the present to get to work building a following for the election.
Why would they be interested in my candidacy you ask?
Imker Positions ...
- Will NEVER support TDK extension to Coweta County

//My plan as Mayor is what blocks TDK from being built without consent of Peachtree City, Fayette County, Coweta County, the property owner and the state of Georgia.

- Return to responsible financial management
- Add headcount to Police and Fire/EMS departments

//He opposed as a councilman.

- Pay competitive wages for all our city employees (Compare to ~10 mile radius from PTC; not to high priced Atlanta area cities)

//Using his approach he opposed every past increase while we lost good employees to higher-paying places.

- Rein in the Water and Sewer Authority (WASA) part of our water bill

WASA is not a city department. It is an authority whose charter should be rewritten and should be placed back under a nongovernment control per state law.

- Return to once a year Stormwater billings

//Imker voted to split the bill into two annual payments as a Councilmember.

- Work with GDOT, Fayette and Newnan Counties for traffic solutions.

//GDOT Follows ARC planning and policy. Fayette and Coweta County have nothing to do with city roads. Coweta has never worked for the benefit of anything in Fayette County.

- Work with GDOT to stop the no-value added $9M expenditure on the intersection of GA54/74 and retarget that money to better improve GA54 East & West bound

// https://donhaddix.com/index.php?forums/traffic.8/

- Work with GDOT to remove specified traffic lights West of the infamous GA54/74 intersection to better improve GA54 East & West bound

// https://donhaddix.com/index.php?forums/traffic.8/

- Initiate dialog with county for future Lake Peachtree maintenance

//Under what reasoning with they be interested?

- Support renewing SPLOST in order to lower our property tax
(same amount taxed gains $3 for every $1 using SPLOST)

//SPLOST Cannot be used for normal city expenses.

- Stop rezoning Industrial to Residential

//We need DAPAC back, which he pushed to have dissolved.


- Return Public Gardens back to former location

//Which costs money.
- Enforce planned larger acreage for home developments further from city center
- Consider annexations to our East (i.e. Ebenezer Road) only if it makes sense
- No to City mandated garbage pickup. Yes to individual neighborhoods unifying on one provider they choose with city assistance as required.

//First proposed when I was a councilman and I opposed it.

- Improve McDuff Parkway by having only needed stop signs and eliminating specific speed bumps

//Cannot be done without GDOT permission. We discussed it back in 2008 on Council. GDOT stayed firm.

- Fix service road parallel to GA54 coming out of Walmart. Remove several unnecessary speed bumps.

//Safety issue.

- Fix the bridge to Spyglass (Snake) Island
