There are three referendum issue on the ballot for next Tuesday’s, November 7, election. They are the Special Purpose Optional Sales Tax (SPLOST), Equalized Homestead Optional Sales Tax (EHOST) and Property Tax Assessment Freeze for those owning and living in their own home. I wrote an Educational Information article, in plain language, in this week’s (November 1) Crier. Please read that article to get yourself educated on the aspects of all three referendums. Personally, I supposed all three referendums and will vote yes.

Also, all three Dunwoody City Council Local seat will be on the ballot. You will get to choose the representative to represent you and the City of Dunwoody for the next four yeas. You will only be able to vote on the representative for the District in which you live.
