Ethics Town Hall Meeting

This coming Wednesday, September 14th at 7 PM, Rep. Taylor Bennett and I are hosting a town hall meeting in Ashford Park in Brookhaven. The address is 2980 Redding Road, Atlanta 30319.

Stacey Kalberman, who was recently hired as DeKalb County's first full-time Ethics Officer, will join us to talk about the work she is doing to educate county officials and employees on best practices and to address infractions.

The formation of the new Board of Ethics and the position that Stacey now fills are the result of an incredible amount of work by a DeKalb County task force and a task force of citizens who wanted change. Both groups came to the same conclusion: that it was critical to create this position to increase ethical standards in DeKalb County's government.

I'm proud to have played a part in helping to make this happen. I sponsored the bill that ultimately received unanimous support in the General Assembly and approval by DeKalb citizens in a referendum last year.

Please join me and Rep. Bennett in welcoming Stacey Kalberman and learning about the critical work she and the Board of Ethics are doing.

That state of emergency remains in effect. Read More »
