10/9/2014 – SPLOST Presentation and North GA Tea Party Leaders

This week’s meeting will focus on two different topics.

Ron_SifenThe first hour will feature another perspective on SPLOST, presented by Ron Sifen. Mr. Sifen has been president of the Cobb County Civic Coalition for the last 3 years. Ron has been one of the leading activists for CCCC for the last 14 years, working to protect communities on a variety of issues that broadly impact communities throughout Cobb County, and to preserve the suburban character of our communities from those whose agenda is to urbanize the suburbs.
Ron has been writing guest columns on transportation issues and other issues for the Marietta Daily Journal for the last 6 years. He was one of the leading activists who worked to get the true information out to voters that helped to defeat the T-SPLOST in 2012. Ron currently serves on GDOT’s Citizens Advisory Committee for the Revive285 study to try to improve traffic flow on the top end of I-285. He is one of Commissioner Ott’s appointees to the Cobb Community Transit Advisory Board. Commissioner Ott also appointed Ron as his “stakeholder” representative to the “Cobb Connect” study, which is the Cobb Parkway Bus Rapid Transit study. Ron has also served as a community representative to several previous Cobb County projects and studies over the last 14 years.
