Kirkland for Gwinnett
My friend, Kirkland Carden, is running for Gwinnett County Commission. This race is important to Doraville, because we need Gwinnett to have transit-friendly commissioners who will support bringing MARTA into their county.
MARTA is currently unwilling to give up their parking lots in our city (which are a prime spot for future development), but may change its mind if our city is no longer the end of the transit line (the main users of the Doraville station's lot are Gwinnetians who ride transit). Having commissioners in place who support MARTA will help us toward this goal.
Kirkland's having a fundraiser on May 22 from 6-9pm at Epicurean Cafe (3579 W. Lawrenceville ST, Duluth, GA 30096), and wanted me to invite you and any friends you may have who live in Gwinnett. Tickets to the event can be purchased here.
