Bob Gray Wants to Drain the Swamp: Why didn’t he on the Local Level?

Bob Gray who recently resigned from Johns Creek City Council to run for U.S. Congress, has put out a commercial vowing to “Drain The Swamp”.

Well, why does he feel moved to go all the way to D.C to remove career politicians?

Why didn’t Bob Gray focus on cleaning up the swamp in Johns Creek?

Bob Gray skipped the crucial February 13th Council Meeting, where “Term Limits” were discussed. Had he been present for the conversation, another voice in favor could have changed the outcome of the discussion.

Bob Gray also missed 5 City meetings since announcing his Congress candidacy, and still collected a City Council paycheck.

How will he create term limits in Congress with 435 people, when he didn’t even do so among a City Council of 6?

Yes, Bob Gray has done some good things for Johns Creek.

The question is why did he limit himself from doing good within Johns Creek and chose NOT to advocate for Term Limits here?

    Clearly, your headline shows your bias for another candidate and ignores the incredible work Bob Gray did for Johns Creek.

    Your report is nothing more than a slimy hit-piece in the later sages of the congressional campaign.

    I just lost a LOT of respect for the Post.
    …..Journalism died in 2009. You just joined the graveyard.

      Read the post in its entirety.

      We stated Bob Gray has done good work for the City.

      If you follow us over the years, we’ve highlighted many of things you stated above.

      Bob Gray made a CHOICE to go campaigning for Congress during the meeting and Not attend when Term Limits was discussed. Charter changes were on the AGENDA, so it was not a surprise.

      Bob Gray CHOOSE to skip:
      Billboard Town Hall
      Quarterly Town Hall
      Special Called Executive Session
      Work Session
      Council Meeting

    Bob Gray should have resigned from council when he announced he’s running for congress. The fact he held onto the seat till qualifying wasn’t good. He didn’t work as a councilman but collected the pay.

    This article is fair.

    Bob Gray is fading fast in the polls. The 2 Republicans Moody and Handel are tied for second place in the 6th District Congressional race after Democrat John Ossoff who is in first place.
