Statement from MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker on the passing of Clayton County Commissioner Sonna Gregory.

“MARTA joins Clayton County in mourning the loss of Commissioner Sonna Gregory and offers our deepest condolences to her loved ones and many friends. Commissioner Gregory prioritized representing her constituents and their interests and was the deciding vote on the Clayton Commission to call the Clayton referendum in 2014. However she felt personally about public transit and MARTA at the time, she believed that it was her duty to let the people vote. Commissioner Gregory and MARTA developed a strong relationship and worked together on issues impacting her district from identifying bus stops needing shelters and the new Operations and Maintenance facility. MARTA salutes her spirit and integrity and remains grateful for the impact she had on Clayton County.”
