Lee May Throws Nancy Jester Out of Taxpayer Funded Meeting 
As Lee May Loses Touch with Reality, He calls Taxpayer Meeting “Private”
Today, Lee May, who remains the un-elected iCEO for DeKalb, kicked Commissioner Nancy Jester, an actual elected official, out of a taxpayer funded meeting in which other DeKalb County Commissioners were allowed to attend via his personal invitation.
In a stunningly unprofessional action, Lee May told Commissioner Nancy Jester the interviews for Director of the Peachtree-DeKalb Airport (PDK) were private meetings. Lee May not only refused to invite Commissioner Nancy Jester, but once she arrived to go to work for the taxpayers of DeKalb County, Lee May, with raised voice and intimidation tactics, forced Commissioner Nancy Jester to depart the meeting against her will.
However, Lee May, the un-elected iCEO, did allow two other DeKalb County Commissioners to participate in the interview process.
Senior staff for Lee May confirmed to Commissioner Nancy Jester the justification for the invitations to the two invited DeKalb Commissioners was they represent part of PDK. When senior staff for Lee May acknowledged that Commissioner Jester represents part of PDK and presented this reality to Lee May he still refused to allow her to remain in the room.
The taxpayers of DeKalb County District 1 were disenfranchised by the unethical and unprofessional actions of Lee May.  To allow certain districts which include PDK to have their Commissioner involved in the process while excluding one district is an act which excludes innocent taxpayers from the legitimate functions of government.  It is a complete insult to the taxpayers of District 1.
Lee May put politics ahead of policy and good manners.
His action, to exclude the duly elected commissioner for the taxpayers of District 1, was punitive and petty. It is an action which calls into question the ability of Lee May to impartially govern. He has lost touch with reality, propriety, respect, and is now abusing his office.
For the good of DeKalb County, Lee May should resign the office of iCEO before he harms and disrespects the taxpayers further.
