    Did you watch the video? Imagine that, low property taxes attracks business and jobs. That's quite a concept. Did I forgot to mention the management company that runs the city is employee owned?

    A government shutdown should be avoided at all costs.

    I meant model their city services after Sandy Springs. Sounds like a mighty prosperous place to me.

    The reason they can do what they do is they have a high tax base due to all the corporations and high income people. Not every city/sate can do that.

    Did those companies move there before or after they incorporated?

    Yeah, everyone who isn't a millionaire is a leech. Forget the fact that millionaires can only exist because of these "leeches."
    Leeches it would seem, are the ones that need the millionaires.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Near Sandy Springs but as far as I can see not in Sandy Springs. Maybe you can clarify it for me?

    Newell Rubbermaid to Build Atlanta Headquarters

    Atlanta, October 16, 2006 - Newell Rubbermaid Inc. announces it has signed an agreement with developers Greenstone Properties, in partnership with Pope & Land and Granite Properties, to construct a 350,000 sq. foot, 14-story Atlanta headquarters at Two Glenlake in the Perimeter Center area. The groundbreaking is scheduled to occur prior to January 2007, with a Fall 2008 targeted move in date.

    Rubbermaid Commercial Products
    Did Rubbermaind NOT build in Atlanta? The information I'm finding appears to conflict with yours.

    Sandy Springs is basically a suburb of Atlanta. 30328 is a Sandy Springs zip code: Sandy Springs Zip Codes, Area Code, County and more
