I got a robocall for Alpharetta City Council candidate John Monson today and it made me laugh out loud. The guy used to be on city council and was the driving force behind putting an ultra dense mixed use development in my children’s school district.
The Windward Mill project will add 12,000 car trips to one of the most congested intersections in Alpharetta and my neighbors in Windward packed the city council chambers with people opposed to the project. We even submitted a petition with more than 500 signatures of people opposed to the project.
Despite all of this, during the city council meeting John Monson personally handed out flyers supporting the developer. In more than a decade of zoning involvement I have never seen an elected official shill for a developer so shamelessly.
John Monson for Alpharetta City Council? No Thanks.
