Commissioners Respond to Interim CEO’s Criticism

In finally resigning his Commission Seat after 23 months as Interim Chief Executive, Lee May has made much of the resistance of “three Commissioners” of the BOC to his efforts to install a hand-picked successor to represent District Five.  As the “three Commissioners” he referred to, we think the public might benefit from a broader perspective on the issue.

Statement on the Ethics Board

At the DeKalb County Board of Ethics meeting on Tuesday, March 3, after hearing preliminary investigations, the Board unanimously dismissed the ethics complaint against Commissioner Kathie Gannon.
Commissioner Gannon released the following statement: 
"I passionately believe in the role of an Ethics Board in government AND the right of persons to bring matters to its attention.
However, when a person with access to government records-- without an Open Records Request-- uses that information to create a fraudulent complaint, I think it is criminal. It is distrespectful to the entire notion of ethics. It diminishes the legitimate authority of the Board of Ethics and undermines the ability of citizens to use the forum."
