Back in November, voters overwhelmingly approved a sales tax increase to fund transit expansion in the City of Atlanta. MARTA just released its ideal expansion plans, which include bus rapid transit crisscrossing the city, late night and weekend bus service, and 21 miles of light rail. But there is a fatal flaw: the light rail infrastructure goes through one of the most congested part of town, the downtown path of the Atlanta Streetcar.
In a political contest that has contained explosions and chainsaws, candidate impersonators, and a “Deportation Bus,” among other peculiarities, the Republican gubernatorial candidates aiming to claim Governor Nathan Deal’s post convened at Georgia Public Broadcasting on Thursday to tout their conservative platforms and to call foul on each other’s indiscretions.
Former vice president Joe Biden gave a heartfelt speech to a crowd gathered for the 70th anniversary of the Visiting Nurse Health System, which provides in-home medical and palliative care throughout metro Atlanta. He attended the Hospice Atlanta benefit luncheon at the urging of his friend, Senator Johnny Isakson.
