Statement from Senator-Elect Albers on Milton County.

ROSWELL (December 30, 2010) – Senator-Elect John Albers (R-Roswell) made the following statement today regarding Fulton County’s efforts to block re-creation of Milton County:

“Citizens should have the opportunity to vote for or against the re-creation of Milton County. The Fulton County government wants to prevent the legislature from allowing voters to decide this issue, and is using up to $110,000 of the taxpayer’s own money to fund their efforts by hiring lobbyists,” said Albers. “This is exactly the kind of government impudence and waste that has prompted the need for a new Milton County. Re-establishing Milton will create a system of local government that is more responsive to the needs of its citizens. The population growth in North Fulton has left residents paying for services they never use and without proper representation. In these uncertain economic times, we must be focused on making government more manageable and taxes lower.”
