Isakson Living Update for April 2016:  Campaign Intrigue Articles, 7 Candidate Forums, New Voting Districts for Cobb, Phone Survey

  1. AJC Article: Tim Lee is up for election. So is his enemy. Conspiracy time! "Normally, when folks run for political office, there’s a time-honored progression. They get mad about something, arrive at public meetings with placards, lead their neighborhood association and get appointed to governmental boards like zoning or ..." Read more here.
  2. MDJ Article:  Isakson Living project becomes major campaign issue in Cobb Republican Primary set for May 24. Johnathan Page is challenging Bob Ott for his seat on the Cobb County Board of Commissioners. A major backer of Jonathan Page criticized Bob Ott's zoning decision on Isakson Living: In a recent MDJ article, Jim Rhoden, a major supporter of Page, criticized Ott's decision to deny the Isakson Living zoning next to East Cobb Park, called "Tritt Walk" in the article.

Be on the lookout for 'phone surveys' from American Viewpoint designed to sway your vote:  Several concerned citizens have said they received a phone call with survey questions designed to find out their position and change their votes away from Bob Ott and Mike Boyce. For example, the caller says things like, if you knew 'such and such' about Bob Ott, would you still vote for him, and if you heard 'such and such' about Mike Boyce would you vote for him? So far based the reports we have received, the survey only addressed the Chairman and District 2 races. No other contested seats were discussed. Did anyone else get that call?
Interestingly enough, American Viewpoint lists Sen. Johnny Isakson as a principal client and their website even has a quote from him lauding their skills. It seems odd for a national polling firm to be interested in a Cobb commissioners race. American Viewpoint is not listed on the expenditure page of either Tim Lee or Jonathan Page: (under Cobb, then Lee, then Page). A PAC could have paid for the survey and not reported the expense...or not.
