I had been under the delusion that the sorry state of the local roads is due to "Red State" governance not wanting to invest in infrastructure; however, since my job now has me traveling on the streets of surrounding communities, I have observed that's not so. The deplorable road condition that I had been noting is unique to Dunwoody, albeit ubiquitous to every Dunwoody road. The streets in our neighbor cities are of such high quality they could probably support a Grand Prix style road race. But with the jarring vibration that I experience in my car from washboard roads specific to Dunwoody, it now becomes explicitly clear why they route the Ladies' Night Party Bus through Dunwoody even though Route 400 would be much quicker.

My use of hyperbole should not dismiss the severity of Dunwoody's most distressing dilemma - our roads are truly disgraceful! Come on City of Dunwoody Mayor and City Council, the only item that should appear ad nauseam on each and every Dunwoody City Council Agenda, until resolution, is -

Item #1: FIX THE ROADS!!!
Item #2: FIX THE ROADS!!!
Item #3: FIX THE ROADS!!!
