Cobb GRA Helps Mike Boyce Beat Tim Lee for Braves Stadium Deal Debacle

Cobb GRA Helps Mike Boyce Beat Tim Lee for Braves Stadium Deal Debacle

Cobb GRA 1st Vice President Scott McDaniel and Chairman Nathaniel Darnell participated today in the newly elected Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce‘s swearing in ceremony. Immediately after forming as an official chapter of the Georgia Republican Assembly, the Cobb County Republican Assembly’s first act was to unanimously endorse Mike Boyce over incumbent Tim Lee in the Republican Primary run-off. The Cobb County Republican Assembly (“Cobb GRA”) wanted to send a clear message that they are against the tax increases that Tim Lee pushed through behind the backs of the citizens of Cobb County to advance the “crony capitalist” activity of subsidizing the billionaire owner of the Atlanta Braves with tax-dollars to the tune of $400 million. Our members went door-to-door, made phone calls, put out yard signs, and helped to get out the vote for Mike Boyce.

Chairman Mike Boyce had pledged not to commit the same blunders as his predecessor Tim Lee.

We congratulate Mr. Boyce and will look to see him improve the policy of the Cobb County Commission.
