While Moore has mostly steered
clear of controversies involving Buck-
head, Adrean and Shook have shown
their willingness to challenge popular
sentiment. At separate Buckhead Coun
cil of Neighborhoods meetings, Shook
and Adrean both made comments that
weren’t what their constituents likely
wanted to hear.
Shook said during a BCN discussion
in August about a proposed Walmart
near the Lindbergh MARTA station
that Buckhead’s opposition to the proj
ect might hasten its arrival. The council
later rejected plans for the development.
Adrean made a more philosophi

members of the neighborhood council
debated the merits of the regional sales
tax for transportation, a tax levy rejected
by voters in July, Adrean reminded them
it isn’t all about Buckhead. “I’d like for
you guys to think about the whole city
from time to time,” she told the group.
All three of Buckhead’s City Council
reps supported a pay raise for the mayor
“I’m very excited about
the parks expansion pro

in the district. There are
a lot of irons in the fire to
get new park space. That
should accelerate as the
economy warms up.”
