“Bob has led a coalition of suburban and urban businesses and elected officials who persuaded the Atlanta Regional Commission to adopt a new approach to spending transportation dollars to fix our most congested corridors first. This is a real change from the old political system of the past. He is a developer who looks beyond his own projects and helps lead regional change to make Metro Atlanta a better place to live.”
