It is unlikely that Rep. Regina Quick (R-Athens) won any friends at the Georgia Department of Transportation last week with the comments she made at the special session with local governmental leaders organized by the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce.
But it was clear she was not trying to curry favor with the state’s transportation leaders.
“I have some concern that there is a great sucking sound coming from Atlanta, from the transportation office,” she said.
In Quick’s view, the need for additional money for transportation has not yet been demonstrated, and she is not certain that giving any new funds to GDOT is the solution to the state’s transportation problems.
