Another Letter to the Editor at the Marietta Daily Journal caught our eye again. You see a theme for a reason. 

Local control is the way to preserve what the locals want.


Dear Editor:

Kudos to Ron Sifen for his guest column on zoning codes. I have long admired Ron’s thoughtful views on development in Cobb County. We have not always agreed, but he gives us all a reasonable debate.

Ron’s views on our suburban lifestyle are why so many of us have made Cobb County our home for many years. Changes to a proposed urban community invite loss of service, crime, and ultimately higher taxes.

Currently, I oppose the concept of cityhood for East Cobb. We now enjoy excellent fire, police, and emergency services. Taxes and spending are in a range many of us find acceptable. Change to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan threatens this.
