Now that the Cobb Board of Commissioners is predominantly female, will the way the county is run change?
In addition to running most U.S. households, making the majority of car purchasing decisions, shuffling the kids to and from various activities, cooking most meals at home and even laying out clothes for their husbands, women are gaining numbers as elected officials across the country, including in Cobb.

Cupid has spoken out about the need for transportation, even suggesting extending MARTA to Six Flags, the fact that industrial and residential areas are disharmonious when next to each other and that South Cobb hardly receives the resources and services that other parts of the county …
