AJC poll: 69% think new cities in the metro area are a bad idea

The Sunday edition of the AJC featured several items on the 215 legislative session, include a legislative how-to section that includes information on how to contact legislators and track bills.

Also included were the results of several polls [article behind paywall] on issues such as transportation (folks want more emphasis on transportation but don't want to pay for improvements through gasoline taxes), legalizing marihuana (even split) and minimum wage (overall in favor of increasing).

The article closes with the factoid that only 25% of respondent said they supported the creation of new cities in the metro are. "Sixty-nine percent gave the idea a thumbs-down."
