Atlanta Bond Referendum Defeated

From an article by Susan Laccetti in the March 10, 1994, Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

It may have been Atlanta mayor Bill Campbell who pulled the plug on the city's $149 million bond referendum, but it probably wouldn't have happened without the dogged persistance of lawyer Bob Proctor, 35.

"My personal objective is to reduce the role of government in our world," said the self described Libertarian.

Not only was he the attorney who filed suit against the special bond election scheduled for tuesday, but he ... led the 1991 taxpayer revolt.

Proctor is state chair of the Georgia Association of Taxpayers, a 10,000 member group that filed suit and stopped the tax on private sales of automobiles. That case resulted in 150,000 refunds to Georgia taxpayers last fall.
