MARTA for Clayton County?

Clayton Non-binding MARTA Vote Goes Forward

Deadline for Binding Vote Passes

RIVERDALE, GA – Mass transit supporters say quality bus and rail projects are still possible in Clayton County even though today's deadline to allow voters to formally join MARTA this year is passing.

“We would rather have been allowed to join MARTA this year,” said Pastor Jerome Dukes of Community Fellowship Christian Center International in Riverdale. “But the MARTA question that we did get on the ballot is empowering.”

The Clayton County Commission did not call a binding vote on MARTA in time to beat a September 2 deadline. But the Georgia General Assembly did pass a law earlier this year allowing Clayton voters to vote in a non-binding referendum.

That vote will take place November 2.

“We need to invest in future generations,” said Dukes.
