North American Properties contributes to Paine Campaign

Executives and employees at North American Properties, owners of the former Prospect Park development, have made campaign contributions to Alpharetta mayoral candidate Jim Paine. According to his October 25th campaign contribution report, Paine’s campaign accepted nine contributions from NAP employees totaling $1,800. No other candidates for mayor or council have reported contributions from NAP.

North American Properties has plans to begin construction on the Avalon project (formally Prospect Park) in August 2012 with a planned opening in late 2013. With such aggressive construction schedules, NAP would have to submit revised plans and a new site plan to Alpharetta pretty soon.

I do not believe it is appropriate for NAP to make contributions to candidates with such a large project looming before the city. Furthermore I’m disappointed that a candidate would accept such contributions. Jim Paine should refund the contributions and NAP should refrain from making political contributions this season. Do the right thing, guys.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
