If at first you can’t get a jet, a highway must be next on the list.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:
A proposal in the state Senate would dedicate a portion of Old National Highway in South Fulton County as the new “Creflo Dollar Highway,” a nod to the prosperity preacher’s influence as what the proposal calls “a world-renowned Bible teacher, a sought-after conference speaker and a best-selling author, with hundreds of books, CDs, and DVDs in distribution worldwide.”
Officially filed as Senate Resolution 805 and sponsored by state Sen. Donzella James, D-Atlanta, the proposal on Monday got assigned to the Senate Transportation Committee, which over the course of the next several weeks will consider dozens of local road-naming requests as part of regular business at the state Capitol.
Dollar made headlines last year when he and other leaders in World Changers Church International in College Park launched and then dropped a campaign that asked followers to pony up $65 million for a top-of-the-line luxury Gulfstream G-650 jet. It’s an airplane generally reserved for world leaders, the top crop of business executives and billionaires.
Dollar’s church, whose dome is a College Park landmark, is in James’ district. And her recent road-naming track-record is pretty good: last year, she won approval to name a portion of Atlanta’s Spring Street as the new Gladys Knight Highway.
