Your County Commissioners are about to vote to raise $300 million in Cobb taxes to pay for the new Atlanta Braves stadium. We need your help at a meeting this Thursday night, November 21st, to send a strong message – don’t leverage Cobb County taxpayers on behalf of the billionaires that own the Atlanta Braves! Let them build their own stadium! The Commission vote is scheduled for next Tuesday evening so time is of the essence.
What can you do to stand for your own bottom line?
1) Send a letter to your district commissioner here and urge them to vote NO on the “Tomahawk Tax”
2) Share the letter with friends by email and on your Facebook page and encourage them to send it to their commissioner.
3) Show up at the Thursday night Commissioner’s meeting (Nov 21) or Mon (Nov 25) or the Tuesday vote on (Nov 26), sign the petition.
