T-SPLOST forum was ‘staged’ event?

MARIETTA — Tuesday’s standing-room-only TSPLOST forum hosted by the Atlanta Regional Transportation Roundtable in Marietta was a calculated response to the recent town hall meetings held by Cobb lawmakers where residents have blasted the proposed 10 year tax, said state Rep. Ed Setzler (R-Acworth).

“There’s a dramatically different set of people that turned out tonight,” Setzler said after the meeting, held in the Cobb Board of Commissioners room. “I mean, after the battering this light rail concept has taken in four consecutive town hall meetings around the county, I think there was a recognition among the supporters of this that if they don’t show up tonight in force, have prepared remarks and get recognized to be one of the seven speakers who got to speak, then their message was never going to get out.”
