“New cities have done nothing to improve conditions in DeKalb County or stop the corruption,” says DeKalb Strong’s President Marjorie Snook. “In fact, there is a lot of evidence that they have made things worse because of the increased tax burden for people living both inside and outside city borders.”
Snook announced that this event is the group’s first cooperative effort with Save Tucker!, a Tucker-based group that is also asking residents to vote no in November on the city referendums.
“We want to save Tucker just as much as everyone else,” said homeowner Cheryl Miller, “but the map that was approved by the legislature does not represent our true community and may not be financially feasible.”
Both groups will be on hand to answer questions and help residents determine which city they will actually be voting on when Nov. 3 rolls around. Tucker Day runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. DeKalb Strong will be located on First Street just west of Main Street.
“We don’t want to pay higher taxes for services we already receive. An extra layer of government won’t do anything for Tucker that we haven‘t been able to do for ourselves for more than 120 years. Tucker Day is a great example.”
