State Representative Says Money Isn't Quite There for Proposed City of South Fulton

Georgia Unfiltered and Home Rule News caught up with state Representative Sharon Beasley-Teague (D - Red Oak) last week, and asked her a few questions about the proposed city of South Fulton.

Rep. Beasley-Teague was very frank in her answers, saying constituents are telling her they don't want to pay anymore taxes and that they're not necessarily in agreement with having anymore government.

"To step out there and become a new city, you need some money backing," Beasley-Teague said. "We're paying somebody now to handle all the stuff we're talking about creating the city for."

When asked if she had seen the feasibility study commissioned by pro-city group South Fulton United, Beasley-Teague said the only thing they've shown her is how much the money the mayor will be paid.

"That's not good enough for me," the south Fulton Democrat said.

"There's a lot of ifs in it," Beasley-Teague said of the proposed city of South Fulton, "And the money isn't just there yet."
