ATLANTA(WAOK)-Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and State Senator Vincent Fort squared off in a debate that lasted one hour and fifteen minutes this morning on the Frank and Wanda show on our sister station V-103-FM.

It didn’t take long for each side to mix facts with innuendo as both sides tried to get out the vote either for or against the one cent transportation tax.

Take a listen

Part two

Supporters have spent $8 million trying to convince voters the plan will add jobs, ease congestion and improve their quality of life. Critics blast the plan as not only the heftiest tax proposal in state history, but as a false strategy that addresses neither sprawl nor smart growth.

As the conversation continued both sides became passionate about which way they want you to vote.

The bottom line from both sides no matter how you vote, make sure you go to the polls to vote.

There are other referendums on the ballot as well as many positions to vote for including congressional, state, and local representatives, county commissioners, judges, and school board positions. The polls are open until 7 pm. Full coverage of the results tomorrow morning.
