Greg Cantrell and Paige Havens join Rick for a discussion on how the March 19, 2019 transit referendum gives Gwinnett a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in their future. Greg and Paige are residents, business owners, and community leaders that are voluntarily serving on the GO Gwinnett Advocacy Committee. GO Gwinnett is a ballot committee registered with the Gwinnett County Board of Elections and the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission with a mission to seek passage of the March 19, 2019 transit referendum.
The Gwinnett transit referendum on March 19, 2019 is about one thing – guaranteeing the future success of Gwinnett County. Gwinnett County has seen impressive growth over the last 30 years and it is time to build a transportation system that matches it. Constant traffic and gridlock are jeopardizing the long-term vitality of Gwinnett.
Expanding access to transit and offering new transit options are essential to making Gwinnett County a better place to live, work, and raise a family. It will make lives easier, ensure smarter growth, and make Gwinnett more competitive with other counties in attracting high-wage jobs. It will offer more independence and inclusion for seniors and disabled residents. It will offer greater access to education and entertainment which helps keep millennials in Gwinnett.
