  1. Baker road is the abused step-child of the city of Acworth. While the residents of Acworth in the subdivisions off Baker road have paid thousands of dollars in taxes, only Downtown Acworth and the area to the west of it has benefited. Thomas Allegood, Mayor of Acworth, has ignored the Baker road area for years now. It was built up and then left to fend for itself. The crime in the area is increasing and nothing is being done. I live on Baker road, and sirens have become as common as South Central LA. Of course the Mayor of Acworth can’t hear them where he lives.
