Sandy Springs Mayor Resonds Quickly to my Email and Gets the Problem Fixed

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage GREC #208281

Eva Galambos, the mayor of Sandy Springs, is a lady who gets things done quickly.

Yesterday evening I emailed her in frustration about a traffic light that made me wait for 10 minutes while it went through three cycles of letting every other lane of traffic go except mine.

This has happened to me on several occassions over the last year.  So I decided I would vent my frustrations through an email to the mayor.  I googled "mayor sandy springs" and got her page and it happened to have her email address.  I wrote what had happened and said that something needed to be done.  I really didn't think my little email would really do anything but at least it made me feel good.

This morning, I was copied on an email that Eva sent to some traffic guy.  She said that the same thing had happened to her in the past year and that she wanted it to be fixed.

Throughout the day I was copied on emails from various people who were looking into the problem.  At 3:06 this afternoon there was an email stating that the problem was identified and fixed.

I have to say that I am very impressed with how quickly the problem got fixed. 

Thank you Eva Galambos.  It's great to live in a city where the government is so responsive.

Now that's government that listens.  And I thought that Chicago was "the city that works".
