The key to stopping TDK for good is abandoning the right-of-way!

Christian's picture

Despite all the talk about the TDK project being halted, until Peachtree City vacates (gives up) the right-of-way, this road could be built in the future.

If a political leader claims to be against TDK he or she should state that they will move to VACATE the right-of-way. Simply put: no right-of-way, no road. It will not matter what the Fulton County judge says...we will not have a publicly owned right-of-way to build a road, and the matter becomes moot.

City Council Special Called Meeting Minutes December 14 2006

BTW, make sure to check out who one of 'lawyers' was. Fourth paragraph on page 2. His initials are "Matt Ramsey". I'm glad he was looking out for our best interests back then.

When you vote just remember he was just doing what he thought was best for his paycheck.

Unlike the the rest of you irresponsible bloggers, I actually called Matt Ramsey Campaing HQ and spoke with the candidate directly on this...Man, you guys never let the truth get in the way of a good conspiracy theory to support your agenda. Ramsey represents the Peachtree City Airport and worked with Falcon Field and the FAA to acquire part of two golf holes from Planterra for safety reasons to get the airport into compliance with FAA regulations. This included getting old TDK right of way back from Fayette County and out of the airport’s safety area. I guess Ramsey working on behalf of our airport to enhance safety for our citizens is just another example of him being “beholden to developers.” But as usual, don’t let facts stand in the way of your ongoing character assassination.

I think you are screwed up!

The airport did not want a road where it was to be placed for TDK.

However, if two golf holes could be moved North, then the road could be moved north and out of the airport safety zone!

Golf holes aren't considered a safety hazard to airport safety zones.

So: the only reason one would work to move gold holes and the road would be so TDK could be built. Right?

I never said or implied that Ramsey worked for anyone other than himself. He and his law-firm buddies did this on purpose and knew full well the ramifications of their actions.

“Rutherford asked when the reversion clause had been added. Meeker said it had been added sometime between when the draft was forwarded to the City for review when the City said there was no problem with the three year requirement for road construction and the closing date among the other parties. The City was not a party to any of the closings.”

The Airport Authority was aware of the situation and Warner’s law-firm, including Mr. Ramsey, knew about the clause.

“Plunkett asked Meeker when the City became aware of the December 15 deadline. Meeker said it was on Tuesday December 12 around 10 am. Rutherford noted that the City became aware of the deadline during the PCAA Selection Committee interviews.“

McMullen said that was correct. Meeker said McMullen called him then Meeker called Doug Warner the PCAA attorney.”

Is there something that I didn’t get?

Are you saying that the law-firm representing the Airport Authority didn’t willfully and deliberately withhold this information from the City Council? Please!

The problem Regular Guy is that Mr. Ramsey refuses to answer the question "Do you support or oppose TDK?" You blog away, but your candidate is silent.

What’s the point behind the Mr. Ramsey’s actions as a lawyer with TDK? In one setting Matt Ramsey was a young intern for State Senator Seabaugh, working feverishly at the State Capitol to get TDK built. They brought in reps from the state and federal level to try to get it built. Then Ramsey takes a job with Warner. Now his job as junior attorney is, on behalf of the Airport Authority, to make the local road logistics work so that TDK gets built.

Excuse me, but wouldn’t it be a better idea to get someone as our State Rep that isn’t so pre-committed to having to build this road ??? If he won’t answer this often repeated question, shouldn't we assume that his previous loyalties will remain the same?

Just cut and paste and you can read the PTC minutes yourself:

I'd really be interested in reading those minutes, but your link is bad. I've just spent 30 frustrating minutes searching that crappy official PTC document archive that we taxpayers pay $250 per month for and came up empty. Can you tell me what search terms you used or what the exact title of the document is?

Ain't gonna happen!
There are several ways the PTC government could NOT have that road built, but it will be, nevertheless.
Too much money to be made!
