The Bankhead “TRASH” Transfer Station (BTS) has raised its ugly head again and has found its way back on the Cobb County Commission agenda to be approved to accept household waste in our community.  As you may recall, the commission voted unanimously, with one abstention, last summer to deny the zoning and land use applications of the Bankhead “TRASH” Transfer Station.  The company’s attorney’s appealed the decision.  In Cobb County, all filed cases are required to go to mediation.  We were given assurances that the County would vigorously defend the decision of the Commission and that county officials would allow us to take part in or keep us aware of when the mediation occurred and what transpired.  These promises were not kept.

Hello District 4 Voters. First, I want to thank all the voters of the district for participating in the political process and coming back out to vote in the August 11th Runoff. I am deeply grateful you insisted that your voices be heard. As the final ballots were being counted that night, it initially revealed that the community's support of me was the winner at the polls, with 4919 votes being cast for my platform of change for District 4. However, when the final count of absentee ballots was completed, those ballots determined the outcome of the race with my opponent receiving a greater share. This outcome would not change days later as we waited for additional votes to be counted.

Though we were not successful in our quest to bring new leadership and fresh ideas to the County Commission role for District 4, our campaign and supporters are uplifted by the fact that we garnered nearly half of the overall votes counted. This occurred despite the support given to my opponent from the current commissioner, other politicians, and special interest groups who decided that “politicians would decide who would lead our community, not the people of District 4”. The votes our campaign received clearly reflects hope for our future. It reflects discontent with the status quo and an enormous demand for real substantive change, a fact that cannot be ignored or denied. It also sends a strong message that these “voters for change” will be joining me in watching, monitoring, and holding elected officials accountable for what goes on in our community moving forward. with the following Motto: “Our quality of life, our families, and our homes are no longer for sale”.

This election was never about me; it was always about us and everyone around us - families, seniors, veterans, our community - wanting, desiring, and deserving more. I was in this race for over a year and conducted myself in a manner to which my family and community could be proud. I stand by every decision made and every objective factual issues I raised, while in return I was subjected to some of the most mean-spirited, divisive, distasteful, and hateful actions from the very people in our community that would call themselves “leaders”. Instead, many of us see these folks as “obstacles to our community moving forward”.

As taxpayers and homeowners, we have expectations of our government and our community and believe we are entitled to the best quality of life that is obtainable. With that as a backdrop, I have no plans to offer a concessions speech, but instead I offer to our community hope for our better future. It is in this vain that I will continue my work in our community, as I take a page from the playbooks of Hillary Clinton and Stacy Abrams, two fellow political contenders who turned their outcome at the polls into powerful and meaningful movements.

Stay tuned for an announcement on community initiatives we will be launching that will continue what we started at the polls. I encourage each of you who want positive changes in our community to remain vigilant and join me as we continue to fight those politicians, groups, and harmful special interests that are adverse to the health, positive growth, and overall development of South Cobb and District 4.

Again, I humbly thank the voters, true community leaders, and others who supported me through this process and those who helped me until the last vote was counted. Our work has just begun, and I look forward to partnering with you to continue what we started.

Sorry you didn’t win

Well said Shelia E!!! well said. Thank you for having the courage and the vision for the needed change in our community. We do not want the same of the same moving forward. South Cobb District 4, has been neglected on going. As a home owner and taxpayer I refuse to sit and watch our district deteriorate any further. I’m looking forward to your next venture. 🙏🏽👍🏽🤗🌹😎❤️
