Of interest . . . John Imlay - Just out of college at GA Tech, John interviewed with IBM. They offered him the job but told him if he accepted, he wouldn’t be able to wear argyle socks like the ones he had on. John quickly proceeded to take his socks off and placed them down on the interviewers desk- then walked out! IBM and others never forgot this story as Mr. Imlay rose to the top of the software world.

Burger My opinion of you is not addressed anywhere in my earlier post. I do not know you and I do not care to know why you feel that it is necessary to defend yourself or the people that YOU have named. I guess it should not surprise me that you missed the point, but here it is again... summarized to help you stay focused: Of the funds provided to the NoCity initiative; almost 90% came from residents of historic Brookhaven, 7% from entities outside of the prospective city, and the remainder from other residents. I make no assumptions about the general character of the residents of historic Brookhaven, I’m familiar with the individuals that you feign a reason to defend and I agree with your assessment. But with respect to this cityhood issue, the NoCity effort is primarily funded by residents from this neighborhood. Now that we know where most of the funding is coming from, it should be evident that NoCity wouldn’t have gained much traction if they were to focus on their actual motivation for fighting the prospective City. I imagine that the slogan “Vote no because the Brookhaven name belongs to us” wouldn’t resonate very well with most, so the NoCity crowd fabricated concerns that suit their objective. As I stated earlier, the fact that 90% of NoCity’s support is coming from 1 small pocket of the prospective city gives me great confidence that this effort will have more than enough support to pass.

When "the priority" is so demonstrably given over by a government to itself on even "parking spaces" rather than that government's own citizens, should it be no wonder just what priority that government is giving to citizens to vote freely, and with confidence in tallies, on an issue, in part, over its own governance? Chamblee City Hall should never have been designated a voting locale to begin with.

"Very telling is the picture of Governor Deal signing HB 636 and the folks in the picture." ----Hamburger Which you and Mesh should have seen forthcoming when soliciting a petition to Deal to delay (only) this so-called referendum. It appears certain that BY's legal move to sue for "conflict of interest" is to merely preëmpt any long-awaited suit, or even disbarments, for the blatant conflicts of interests amply demonstrated and pursued by certain members of C4ND, and subsequent BY, right here in the pages of Brookhaven Patch.

In the words of Steve Jobs: N O I S E Brookhaven will focus service delivery by re-purposing 12% of your current tax bill. Anonymous minions would like to confuse the issue with ten-penny words like proletariat, fiefdom, and foreshadowed, in just this thread. Phrases like "layers of government," and "conflict of interest," are used to discredit and diminish, regardless of what is actually happening in other newly incorporated areas. Sadly, these anonymous, continuous, and often mean-spirited voices belong to political operatives. Do your homework, go to Dunwoody and look around, ask residents, talk to Police, ask business owners, and then vote on Tuesday, July 31.
