Endorsements from Concerned Citizens for Milton.

Dear Milton Friends and neighbors,

As a fellow Milton citizen I am sure you have had your inbox bombarded with campaign information and much of it says the same thing. One thing I have noticed is that councilpersons Lusk and Thurman are not pointing to their voting record regarding land use decisions, or their campaign contributors. Also they do not talk about how poorly they have treated many of the citizens and fellow council members who have had a difference of opinion. The people we elect need to uphold the law and ordinances that protect the adjacent landowners and will shape how our city looks and is governed in the future. The people we vote to serve for the next 4 years will be making decisions for Milton's Future Land Use maps that will dictate future commercial and residential zoning. These leaders will finalize the contentious issue of the sewer service delivery map, they will plan where our new City Hall will reside, and they will continue to vote on zoning variances or change zoning ordinances that will shape our city.

My family and I are voting for Bernard Wolff, write-in candidate Al Trevillyan, and incumbent Tina D'Aversa in this election because we have studied the issues closely and watched the actions/decisions on council by the incumbents. First hand experience has led us to a decision to support this slate of candidates. Trevillyan, D'Aversa, and Wolff are good honest people who bring a great diversity of education, experience, and opinion that will serve our community greatly. We believe these candidates will not lose sight of watching out for ALL of the citizens of Milton and protect everyone’s quality of life regardless of where you live. Our city is an oasis in North Fulton County and it is important to have carefully planned development that does not follow the same mindset of the communities that surround us. We feel confident these three individuals will be leaders our city can be proud of and put an end to nasty Milton politics.

Please join us Tuesday November 3rd and vote for Wolff, Trevillyan and D'Aversa. You may take a sample ballot (attached) into the voting booth with you.

Hoping for a Milton we can be proud of,

Carter and Cary Schlenke

Here is what your fellow citizen's are
saying about Bernard, Al and Tina.

Citizens of Milton Support TREVILLYAN, WOLFF and D'AVERSA
Please VOTE wisely Tuesday November 3rd

Question:What do the following Developers and
Developer-related companies have in common?

Orkin and Associates
J. David Chatham (one of North Fulton's largest property developers)
John F. Wieland (John Wieland Homes)
Dillard and Galloway - attorneys for several local developers including John F. Wieland
Cauley Creek Water - private sewer treatment management company that operates Fulton County sewer treatment plant at Cauley Creek located in John's Creek
Nathan "Pete" Hendricks III - Fulton County-based rezoning attorney who assists developers in negotiating zoning changes
CD Lake Deerfield LLC
Carson Developments
Six Hills Phase 4 LLC
JT Adams Builders
Chatham Neighborhoods LLC
John McMillian
Lexem Development

Answer: They have all contributed to the campaigns

of Karen Thurman (District 1) and Bill Lusk (District 3).

After removing all the dirty politics, Candidates saying what they need to say to get elected and outright lies, the only sure fire way to tell fact from fiction is to follow the MONEY. Businesses, especially in these economic times, are very carefully choosing where to invest their funds for the greatest returns.

Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff, and Al Trevillyan have not and will not take a dime for developers and therefore there will be no conflict of interest when they are elected to the Milton City Council.

Please Re-Elect Incumbent Tina D'Aversa in District 5 and VOTE for
Bernard Wolff in District 1 and WRITE IN Al Trevillyan in District 3.

Having watched local politics in North Fulton for the 13 years we have lived here, there is no question in my mind that if not for citizens like Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff, and Al Trevillyan stepping up to the challenge of public service, Milton would have been paved over years ago. A neighbor asked me this week how he could tell whom to vote for since "they all say the same thing." I told him to look at City Council voting records, campaign contributors, and where the candidates' campaign signs are located - on property owned by actual Milton citizens or on corners owned by real estate investors/developers.
Tina, Bernard, and Al are running on a platform of managed growth, no extension of sewer, and not caving in to variance after variance proposed by those who want to bend our land use laws. Let's leave the Milton we love as a haven from sprawl and high density development. A vote for Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff, and Al Trevillyan will ensure our future quality of life.
- Joan Borzilleri
I live in Milton in a residential area near State Route 9. Nine years ago this area was rural in appearance and there was very little traffic. The area is still beautiful with ample trees and green space. However, if my neighborhood is to remain a high-quality place to live, care needs to be taken by our city leaders. We need to manage growth so that we don't overwhelm our streets and services. We need area parks for children to play in. We need City leaders who care about our quality of life and who will listen to us. I endorse Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff, and Al Trevillyan because I have confidence that they share my concerns and are willing to listen and take action to represent all areas of Milton in an objective manner that reflects the wants and needs of our citizens.
- Diane Palmer
We cherish the life that we live here in the beautiful city of Milton. It is for this reason that we watch closely those that dictate the future of our city. We feel that in order to preserve and protect our equestrian heritage, we must elect leaders that will, above all else listen to the voice of the people. Al Trevillyan, Tina D'Aversa and Bernard Wolff will do just that! It is with great confidence that we endorse these candidates and entrust them to do the will of the people.
- Rob and Laura Bentley
With Fall we all benefit from living in our beautiful City of Milton with the leaves turning and the horses in the pastures. This time of year we need you to be thinking of preserving our small city when you go to the polls on Tuesday, November 3, 2009. We have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know the following City of Milton candidates: Tina D'Aversa, District 5, Bernard Wolff, District 1, and Al Trevillyan, District 3. It is with great confidence that we endorse these candidates on Election day.
- Paul and Denise Hackman
Our family wants what most people want-a safe, beautiful, unique community that we can be proud of. That is what the city of Milton is to us. In 2006, the city council adopted a vision statement "Milton is a distinctive community embracing small-town life and heritage while preserving and enhancing our rural character." We can resist the pressures that want to change us but it takes strong, hardworking and dedicated individuals to keep this vision alive. Tina DAversa has proven this as our council member. After reviewing their credentials and vision statements and meeting and vetting the candidates, we strongly believe Bernard Wolff and Al Trevillyan will do the same.
- Dr. Dale and Carol Lane
It is notable that the candidates I am about to recommend to you have avoided engaging in mudslinging, dirty tricks, and innuendoes. I think that candidates who engage in dirty politics to get elected will engage in dirty politics when they are in office. It therefore becomes easy to recommend these candidates.My recommendations are running their campaigns on the issues, their vision for Milton, and controlled growth, as opposed to just turning the city over to developers. I urge you to vote, and I urge you to vote to re-elect Tina Aversa, Bernard Wolff and Al Trevelyan. Thanks for your consideration,
- Ike Yancy
I have known Tina for several years. She is a business person with the professional and intellectual tools essential to meet the challenges Milton is facing today. Just as important, Tina is also an honest, smart, experienced, politically savvy and fiscally conservative leader. She has been active in the community for many years as a business owner and community volunteer which makes her sensitive to the issues facing Milton. From my experience with working with Tina, she serves her community withintegrity, intelligence and ingenuity. With just a few days left before the election, your support of Tina'scampaign can make a tremendous difference in the outcome. I am asking for your support of Tina.
- Robb Pitts
Fulton County Commissioner
All three candidates share a vision for the future of Milton. They support the preserving of Milton's green space and not allowing the unnecessary over development of businesses. Although these business will bring in a tax base the question is at what cost. As I drive through our city both Crabapple and Highway 9 I see vacant structures both old and new. Some of these structures have been vacant for years. Let's say no to those who support the developers who are pushing for this overgrowth and "yes" to Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff and Al Trevillyan and preservation of the city we fought to have 3 years ago.
- Stephen and Deborah Lajewski
I am pleased to announce my support for the re-election of Tina D'aversa in the coming election. I have observed Tina work on the Council in a fair and balanced manner. She has worked tirelessly for the community good dealing with Fulton County before we had a city, helped organize our city and has served on the Council for three years. During her tenure, she has followed the letter of the law in all issues that come before the council I support her efforts to maintain our rural character and our equestrian heritage, maintain low density residential and commercial development, and prevent further extension of sewer into Milton. She has always been an advocate of the diversity we cherish in our city and has a firm track record of taking joint initiatives in Parks and Recreation, Milton Disability Awareness Committee, Milton Police and Citizens Together (MPACT) and neighborhood and business crime watch programs. Tina will continue to her commitment to the community and deserves our support in this election.
- Al Trevillyan
We have lived in the Milton area since 1993 and have raised our three children in this beautiful area. We really love living in this city because of its rural charm and character. One of the most important things we can do for the future of our community is elect a government we know will honestly represent us, and listen to the will of the people. We believe that Al Trevillyan, Tina D'Aversa and Bernard Wolff will do just that; and we endorse these candidates.
- Bill and Tracy Schellhorn
For as long as I have lived here, I have been involved in the community to insure the Milton I moved here for was protected and preserved. Bernard Wolff, Al Trevillyan and Tina D'Aversa share my passion for Milton and understand the value of preserving the unique, rural and pastoral City of Milton. Bernard Wolff, Al Trevillyan and Tina D'Aversa know you and your issues. They have been invited into countless homes throughout the community to listen to the issues and concerns we share. Bernard, Al and Tina have met in backyards, living rooms, community club houses and horse barns. The community has reached out to them and they have reached out to us. They have been available to meet with ALL of Milton. They have heard us loud and clear and confirmed we share the same beliefs and values. Bernard, Al and Tina do not represent any special interest and are not supported by the big money of the development community. As such, they are free to make decisions that will serve the voices of the Milton Community best, consistent with our land use policies and ordinances. Your vote on Tuesday for Bernard Wolff, Al Trevillyan and Tina D'Aversa is a vote to Preserve and Protect Milton.
- Paul and Kathy Moore
My support of Tina D'Aversa is grounded in my knowledge of her voting history, her list of accomplishments, and the dedication I have witnessed Tina to have over the course of my tenure on the city council. She loves our city and is a true representative of the people. She adheres to our land use plan and zoning ordinance in her decision making. She is passionate about parks and recreation and has been very active in trying to secure more parks and develop the parks we have. I believe Bernard Wolff and Al Trevillyan also care about Milton and preserving what we all love. I believe both of these gentlemen to be advocates for parks and recreation, a lean, efficient, and fiscally-sound government, economic development while preserving our rural, equestrian heritage, and appropriate growth and development. They will not sacrifice one part of town over another. I respect the differing views of my fellow council members. Having differing opinions should not be interpreted as personality conflicts or people not getting along. Open, honest debate on issues is part of what makes our country great. When that debate is silenced in the name "getting along," our democracy suffers. I support these candidates because I believe they will promote a government that is open, transparent, and fair and that represents all citizens equally. Please vote for appropriate growth candidates D'Aversa, Wolff, and Trevillyan tomorrow and together we will ensure a fiscally-sound, lean, honest government that provides outstanding essential services to our citizens.
- Alan Tart
Since its inception in 2006 the Milton City Council has been split 4 - 3 into two factions: the majority faction supports sewer expansion, inappropriate commercial growth and high density residential throughout the city; the minority faction supports no sewer expansion, controlled commercial growth in non-rural areas and adherence to the requirement of a minimum of 1 acre lots in AG-1 zoned areas. WE NOW HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TURN OUR CITY BACK OVER TO ITS CITIZENS - TO ENABLE THE FORMER MINORITY TO BECOME THE MAJORITY. JOIN WITH US AND SHOW OUR CITY GOVERNMENT THAT WE DO CARE - VOTE FOR TINA D'AVERSA, BERNARD WOLFF, AND WRITE-IN CANDIDATE AL TREVILLYAN ON NOV. 3RD.
- Leon and Lillian Cole
I moved to Milton after having been an "in-towner" for many years and traveling out here for horses since the 80s. Given our unique rural history and landscape, diversity of commercial and residential space, access to Atlanta, and high quality local schools, there is no other place in Georgia like it. Left unchecked, it seems to be a law of nature for rural areas in close proximity to metro areas to be developed until saturated. This has certainly been true in the areas around Atlanta that were "the country" not too many years ago, and are now just sprawled suburbs. They surround us. Is a "no growth" attitude sensible? Of course not. However, Milton's standards for growth and development clearly have to be set higher than surrounding communities, or we will become them. It is just common sense. Holding the line on these standards is the reason that I am supporting Tina D'Aversa, Al Trevillyan (write-in), and Bernard Wolff for the Milton City Council. I know each of them well, they are talented, experienced, and honorable people, and they share my vision for the Milton community. I urge everyone that would like to see our Milton of tomorrow much as it is today to vote D'Aversa, Trevillyan, and Wolff on November 3.
- Curtis Mills and family
As a 10 year resident, I cherish the uniqueness of our community. I believe that Tina D'Aversa, Bernard Wolff and Al Trevillyan are the ONLY candidates who can be trusted to deliver on their promises of supporting appropriate, sustainable, managed growth here in Milton.

Last election my name would have been added to this list of Concerned Citizens. This election I do not support any one side. Way too dangerous. I'll trust the Mayor.

VOTE Thurman, Lusk and D'Aversa!!

All the Kool-Aid drinkers together! But how can you possibly support Tina knowing what she did??

The Mayor is wrong about Lusk and Thurman. Thank goodness he is smart enough to know the real Tina that has served the city well and made us proud.

Vote for Wolff, Trevillyan and D'Aversa to protect or city.

HH said...

You people are a joke. You people live in subdivisions. Some of you people have sewer. And you people think you have a say in the future of this area? What about what was wanted before you all moved here?
I've heard you people complain about opening a country store because of the traffic it would cause near your neighborhoods.
Well, sh1+, what about the traffic added to this area by you people and the others in your subdivisions? You people move here and then you don't want anyone else to move here. Go away, go back to where you came from, annoy those cities, complain about preserving them and stop complaining about preserving ours.
You were the cause and now you think you have a solution? F all of you! Shame on all of you! Point the finger at yourselves!

A very nice list of supporters who are all very involved in our community. Thank you for helping me make up my mind. Wolff, Trevillyan and D'Aversa it is!

It is true what you're saying even tho it is just a wee bit on the angry side. The local folk mostly feel that way and I have tried very hard to see your point and be open minded. Somewhere there is a compromise. There are cities all over the US with the same demographics as Milton who have worked it out. Tomorrow's election results will surely be interesting. Just make sure to vote.

After all the holier than thou "jzb clones" nastiness this election, the ones who complained about the "so called developer side", they are two faced, lying, propaganda residents. Just because you are so nasty this year, I hope none of your candidates make it. Out with the activists and their candidates! You stooped to the low level of Roger Santi/Gordon Hunter/George Ragsdale. Two wrongs do not make a right. Shame on you!

You Zahnerites are absolute idiots, or disengenuous...maybe just both.

I just got an autodial from Julie, of all people.
She is "all in", as they say in Vegas. Invariably, she hides in the shadows like the wimpy Wizard of Oz, operating via dupes like Leona Cole, Paula Moore, pathetic Carol and nutty Nikky. This time, she is so desperate, the One herself has come out for her cast of candidates.
Her call says Milton will be the same if we vote her way...and it WILL!!!
In other words, no improvement, no parks, no quality of life increases, no tax relief, nothing.
Just a desperate longing for something that only exists in some minds every fall during elections. Anyone who really wants to protect, improve, save Milton needs to run away from the Z-ites as fast as they can.

Let's really do something innovative with our horse community, get parks that are the envy of the region, keep one acre,(regardless of who connects to EXISTING sewer pipes to protect the environment). Julie and her gang haven't done anything innovative in their lives. Look at Tina: uses co-hosts for events she hasn't gotten permission from, signs in places without permission, when corrected she extorts concessions or fires from City committees. She tried to veto the parks authority, didn't start disability awareness as claimed, didn't do much of anything. When an apparently reasonable opponent surfaces, she tries to bribe him to drop she can save her sacred seat & title. Oh, she isn't a professor, she is an "instructor". Doesn't sound so cool.
We should be much more concerned about a man's brother going public saying he is unfit for a position of public trust, than some silly trumped up claim of an obscure company scandal.

Get real, go vote. The only truth is this IS an important election. In Dist 5, if Tina does win, we will have to pay $100k for a special election, undoubtedly, unless the City sues Tina due to her misconduct and makes her pay...which she can't.

Julie and her gang haven't run a business, held a job and most seem to have trouble selecting spellcheck when they blog. Do you really want moonbats running a $20million business, with your money and your property value at stake?

I don't.

Communicating the facts is not dirty politics. You just don't like the facts. Go to the meeting minutes and it's all laid out for you. As for the Thurman story and her ails in California and Tennessee, I would never trust a CPA who has invested so much family money and didn't research or keep tabs on the company's tactics. Her lack of involvement in her own investments doesn't bode well for the city.

The Mayor is not supporting Tina.
Maybe he knows something or is an opportunist.
Maybe he just read the tea leaves and wanted to be on a winning slate.
