Milton News From Julie Zahner Bailey

Dear Milton Neighbors, Friends and Citizens

- I hope this finds you well and enjoying the beautiful weather and unfolding Spring views in Milton.This release provides a brief update on several topics including:

Board of Education discussions Thursday, March 19th

re: the BOE budget and options for planned high schools in North Fulton. The BOE is evaluating, and possibly voting, on whether to keep the new high school planned for Bethany and Cogburn on the current building schedule or push it out beyond the current SPLOST. If that were to occur, student projections show Milton High School far beyond capacity in the next few years. If you have an opinion on this topic, please scroll down for more details. You may email your opinions to the Fulton County Board of Education before this evening's BOE meeting.

Upcoming City of Milton meetings - see listing in the right margin.

Recognition of the Milton Grows Green initiative by the Atlanta Regional Commission as MGG received the first award for the City of Milton. The ARC awarded Milton Grows Green with the CREATE Community Award. Scroll down for the official release on this subject as well as recent news articles.

Is it just me, or has her support dwindled?

She is gearing up for her run for Mayor. God help us all!

Is she really going to run for Mayor? Will she have to give up her council seat?

Has anyone been to the Bailey's farm and garden lately? I went the other day and it was magnificent, with everything in bloom and all.

Politics and gardens don't mix well. Drive around Milton to see plenty in bloom.

How about politics, banking, construction and antique stores? Do they mix well?

No, not at all. All of our local leaders should not have respectable jobs and careers, nor should they be sucessful. They should all be lunatics that dont have anything else to do. That would be very healthy for our city.

Fortunately most of the local leaders are sucessful. Thank you for all you do.

Would it be better to have someone that is not?

I know I am glad to have a Mayor that is balanced and is sucessful running our city.

Thanks Joe!
