Thank You

Thank you to those that read the charter and learned about the structure and rules governing the new city of Peachtree Corners.  It was a close race, much closer than most predicted.  The No-side garnered 44% of the vote.

The challenge going forward will be to bring the disparate communities that now live under the Peachtree Corners moniker together as a single city.  Whoever becomes the new mayor and city council will need to be cognizant that there is a large population that is skeptical of the value of having a city.   To have a truly vibrant and cohesive community, the new leaders will need to work to bring that value without the usual costs, bureaucracy, and other trappings of government many are so disenfranchised with.

We wish the community and its future leaders the best in tackling that challenge and making Peachtree Corners a truly different and successful form of government for all the people it serves.
