Gwinnett County’s business leaders are lining up behind the proposal for the county to join MARTA and want voters to vote “Yes” on the issue during the upcoming March 19 referendum.

Gwinnett Chamber President and CEO Dan Kaufman announced the organization’s support passage of the referendum during the On Topic luncheon at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast in Peachtree Corners on Tuesday. Kaufman said the chamber’s board approved a resolution last week to back the referendum.

“Your chamber is going to be four-square behind getting people to turn out and approve the transit resolution,” Kaufman said.
