Statement from MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker on the passing of Clay Long

"MARTA offers its condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of long-time Atlanta attorney and conservationist Clay Long. Mr. Long was an early supporter of public transportation and served as chair of the MARTA Board of Directors from 1982 to 1984, during a time of tremendous transit development in the City. He has said it was during his time on the board that he first began to connect city land use and the preservation of water and air quality. As a public agency that takes seriously its environmental impact on the Atlanta region, MARTA is indebted to Long for his work in this area and his lifelong dedication to conservation."
