Sandy Springs Mayor Eva Galambos

Reason shows how a city got it right.

Sandy Springs had a great opportunity and did not waste it.  They broke from the bloated Atlanta government bureaucracy and set up their own city, privatizing most of its services, avoiding public unions and the pension liabilities that are sinking so many cities.  It is admittedly easier to avoid money sucking institutions than it is to dismember them, but Sandy Springs at least gives us an idea at what is to be gained by eliminating entrenched special interests  that are contrary to the interests of the taxpayers and citizens of a community.
