Your daily jolt: Fulton County ‘doesn’t do anything anyway,’… | Political Insider | www.ajc.com

So will the property tax freeze make it even harder for the county to provide services? O’Hayer asked. Responded Reed:

“The county doesn’t do anything anyway. So, what — the freeze is going to prevent them from doing anything? They didn’t do anything when there wasn’t a freeze in place.”

But Reed emphasized he doesn’t agree with the GOP effort to pack the county’s legislative delegation, and then push through local legislation to give Republicans more control over a solidly Democratic county:

“I support Fulton County’s ability to govern itself. And I believe that the people that were elected in Fulton County should lead it. I have faith in the public. I think people are very smart….I am in favor of the voices of voters being respected….”

“So I don’t believe that the Legislature should have inserted itself and treated Fulton County in a manner that is disparate and radically different than they do the other 158 counties in the state of Georgia. I think that is unhealthy.”
