Do you happen to know if any of the people currently holding these positions are eligible to be re-elected?  Considering that the citizens of SS, by and large, want the 5395 Roswell application denied, a ruling in August (if it is, in fact, done in August) could make or break their campaign.

You'd certainly do a good job, if you had the time to devote to it!

I have yet to hear , who will or will not be running for mayor and city council. The filing of said paperwork would happen in late August 2009.

The next mayor and city council meeting on the so-called church of scientology,s zoning variance application, is scheduled for August 18th 2009.

Will we see this issue resolved on August 18th? Will another deferral occur? Will the outgoing current members act on this on the 18th?

Only time will tell.

He is running for reelection as a senator, right?  Is he relevant to Sandy Springs local zoning issues?  Can he do anything?
