From the “Tim Lee, don’t forget to remember your promises” department - Below is the entire text of an email sent Wednesday, July 25, 2012 @ 3:58 PM to a Cobb County citizen from Chairman Tim Lee’s office with his promise to make an addition to Cobb County law so that all contractors be required to take advantage of the no-cost federal IMAGE program:

Good Afternoon Mrs. Barton and Family,

On behalf of Chairman Tim Lee, I want to thank you for your recent email concerning the federal IMAGE program. Cobb County is proud to be the first county in Georgia to enroll in this important program and as well as having lead the effort with the E-Verify and SAVE verification programs.

It is our intention to bring forward an addition to the county code this January that will require those doing business with Cobb to also enroll in the IMAGE program.

This process will require several public meetings in January and your support on this important addition to the county code would be appreciated.

Notice of these hearings will be provided to the Marietta Daily Journal as well as listed on the county clerk's web site as part of the agenda.

We look forward to seeing you in January.

Thank you for writing and for allowing us an opportunity to respond back to you concerning this matter.

Millie Rogers, Chairman's Assistant

Cobb County Chairman's Office

Thank you, Mr. King, for this reminder. The IMAGE program is a program that works. Why would our elected officials NOT want to protect Georgia's jobs from those here illegally? Why would our Cobb County's Commission Chairman Tim Lee NOT want to save our tax dollars? The Governor estimated that those here illegally cost Georgia over $2 BILLION a year. This could explain why we are struggling to come up with the necessary budget dollars and why our schools are struggling as well. Cobb County Commissioners, your (legal) constituents will be so GRATEFUL to you if you will make sure all Cobb contractors comply with IMAGE. Please honor that pledge. It is about JOBS for GEORGIANS!
