Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Gwinnett Vote on MARTA Referendum

March 19, 2019

ATLANTA – Tonight, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement:

“For the thousands of working families across Gwinnett who need public transit, today’s vote is hard fought and dearly lost. In spite of the deliberate decision to place this election in an off month and undermine voter turnout, we saw a bipartisan coalition come together for transit, volunteers hustling to get out the vote, and thousands of voters show up to say yes to MARTA. We’re disappointed in today’s results, but we’re not done. Thank you to the Gwinnett voters who took the time and braved the traffic to make their voices heard at the ballot box – we hear you, and we will keep fighting for the progress you deserve.”
