Shan Cooper, former general manager of Lockheed Martin,
speaks to Cobb Chamber Chairman John Loud at the Coca-Cola Roxy
on Monday, June 14, 2021.

On mobility, Loud hopes to organize a fall summit on
the topic — an event that is sure to be well-attended, with
the county’s governing board exploring a new, transit- and
transportation-focused sales tax that voters may approve in a
