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.

  Eric Imker accused me of Lying on Facebook
Posted by: Don Haddix - 07-19-2019, 05:04 PM - Forum: Issues - Replies (2)

Eric Imker is not trying to reinvent himself as the antitax candidate.

On Facebook he called me a liar when I said he supported the 2012 TSPLOST.

Here is proof he is lying and it's not the first.

  Economic development
Posted by: Don Haddix - 07-08-2019, 09:44 PM - Forum: Issues - Replies (6)

The state created economic development authorities because city and county governments cannot legally perform that function.

It is illegal because too many governments misused the funds.

Fleisch, Imker and Learnard refused to raise the DAPC funding to $150,000 from $20,000 because they said it was a waste of money, instead disbanding the authority. But have increased the donation to the FCDA to almost $150,000 a year, who have used the funds for non-Peachtree city purposes.

Now they are talking about cutting that amount and using the funds for Peachtree City economic development under their control.

Again, which they legally cannot do. It requires an Authority.

And remember they define building homes and retail as economic development when it is not.

They tried that before and failed because council cannot do economic development by state law.

Also remember if they do not rollback the millage rate to compensate for increased home values that is legally a tax increase.

The liberals keep pushing to urbanized Fayette County.

We need jobs to give younger families a reason to move here. We have everything else.

Considering the actions of the councils from 2014 on, everyone should answer this survey.

And everyone should be very blunt about how they feel.

And work to elect two new councilmembers this year that will actually work for the benefit of Peachtree City.

When you click into the article notice how options are stacked to conform to their efforts to change Peachtree City into their vision.

No options for preserving such as the Village Concept.

And keeping taxes affordable instead of reducing taxes to be more affordable.

  Commuting to Atlanta
Posted by: Don Haddix - 06-11-2019, 06:27 PM - Forum: Issues - Replies (1)

Commuting to Atlanta is an ongoing issue for Peachtree City.

The simple reality is we need the jobs here.

Peachtree City leads the nation in losing its youth and growth in retiree population.

More homes, retail, recreation and entertainment does not attract workforce. If they did we would already have all the jobs workforce we need.

Jobs attract workforce.

A sound economic environment attracts employers.

But with the highest taxes in the state, Peachtree City is not very attractive any longer.

Most of the employees in Peachtree City do not live in Peachtree city.

Our spending needs to be more like running a home where where you don't spend what you do not have. Where needs come before wants.

I do not remember this being publicized, but there are a number of projects in it for Peachtree City.

It is interesting that the 54/74 intersection is not on the GDOT site.
