I would also like to remove my name for consideration as a potential appointee to the MILRA Board for the City of East Point. Since the announcement of the base closure I have dedicated countless Continue reading

VOTE: MARTA in Clayton County

Clayton Co MARTA Map

Tomorrow, voters in Clayton County will go to the polls and vote on whether to expand MARTA into the county. If a non-binding vote that occurred in 2010 is any forecast, the vote will pass with overwhelming support. What does MARTA in Clayton County look like? A “Yes” vote would add a one-cent sales tax county-wide to go towards the MARTA expansion, taking the total sales tax for the county from 7% to 8%. The one cent increase would raise about $46 million a year for immediate bus service and potential rail service in the future. MARTA has committed that Continue reading

This Week’s Mortgage Update

Shelter Morgage

Here are the 6 most important things you need to know from the Mortgage World this Week courtesy of our friends at Shelter Mortgage: The Federal Reserve is winding down QE3 this week. The third round of the Fed’s bond purchase program has been instrumental in keeping rates down over the last two years but its purpose has been fulfilled. QE3 helped stabilize the housing market and indirectly lifted consumer confidence, lowered the unemployment rate, and gave rise to the stock market. Allowing the program to expire shows the Fed’s confidence in the economy. According to the Atlanta Board of Continue reading
