On February 9th, Advance Atlanta held a free information session at Eagle Rock Distributing Company featuring Charlotte Nash (Gwinnett County Chair) and Robbie Ashe (MARTA Treasurer) to outline the economic, social, and business benefits of transit expansion within Gwinnett County. The event had nearly 300 registrants and was sponsored by Community Improvement District Gateway 85. In addition to a panel discussion with Ms. Nash and Mr. Ashe moderated by Gwinnett Young Professionals, Gateway 85 provided complimentary food for attendees from local Gwinnett restaurants D’Cuban Cafe, Bento Cafe, and Al Madina Bakery. In addition, Advance Atlanta hosted a table where attendees could register to vote. The event was covered in the press by numerous outlets, including Saporta Report and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
