The Italian Heritage Festival came to Peachtree City’s Drake Field on Sept. 12 for the first time — a big hit. And, speaking of fellow Italian Americans …
I fully support Frank Destadio for Peachtree City Council. If you love living here, you will as well.
I first met Frank when I was appointed to the Planning Commission in 2015. He was chairman.
I had been a county commission chair in another county, so I was familiar with local politics, including wheeling and dealing. And I was pleasantly surprised by Frank, a truly honest, humble, smart, and good man. What you see is what you get.
Every decision that Frank made was based on the quality of life for PTC residents. That’s not something that I can say about all local officials.
As chairman, he was respectful of everyone, even when there were zoning disagreements. But he was not going to let greedy developers (and many of them clearly are) run over the Planning Commission. And some tried. He stood firm for the citizens of PTC, fighting to preserve our beautiful city, even when the politics were tough.
We must have commercial/industrial development for our tax base. But out of control residential development, apartment buildings, and more traffic are not wanted or needed. Frank will make sure development is logical and a net plus for us.
The village concept and spirit of Peachtree City must be preserved. It’s unique among all Georgia cities and must stay that way. I’m confident that Frank is the right one to be on the City Council to lead us into that bright future.
Peachtree City, Ga.
