BREAKING NEWS: The Lee May Town Hall IS STILL ON TONIGHT – Just without Lee May
It is extremely disappointing DeKalb County iCEO Lee May has decided not to attend his own Town Hall tonight in Decatur.
The good news for taxpayers is that Commissioner Nancy Jester will host the Lee May Town Hall – for him.
All concerned stakeholders can still attend.
Wear your Red for the Reform DeKalb Red Out.
Commissioner Nancy Jester will video tape the public comments and deliver a copy to iCEO Lee May.
It is irresponsible to cancel on the very day of the event. Lee May might not care what the people of DeKalb County have to say, but Commissioner Nancy Jester does.
TONIGHT: The Lee May Town Hall Minus Lee May Hosted By Commissioner Nancy Jester
6.30pm to 8.00pm

From Reform DeKalb:

Enough is enough. As we watch our county leaders lying, cheating, and making backroom deals without any public input, it’s time for the citizens of this county to band together and clean house. It’s time to have leadership we are proud of, not leaders that we watch being hauled into court. Police and Fire have not had raises in years, yet Mr. CEO Lee May is giving a millionaire millions of taxpayers money, of which we will realize no return.

We are at the point of no return. Now is the time to act. Now is the time to let the leaders in this county know that we are fed up with the corruption, the graft, and the lack of transparency in DeKalb government.

I ask everyone in this group to talk to your friends, family, and neighbors. We all need to get more involved. Many of us worked years to get a no kill animal shelter in DeKalb, just to see Lee May sign an agreement which calls for the demolition of our only animal shelter by the end of 2016.

Did you or your neighbors go a week without clean drinking water recently? Have you tried to call any department in DeKalb government to get help? Have you been through the court system in DeKalb? Have you had a consistent water bill amount ever? Would you put your kids though the DeKalb Public School System?

We pay an enormous amount of taxes as compared to other counties. And if you live in a city, your tax bill is that much higher. What are we as citizens getting for our tax dollars? More in fighting, more backroom deals, and more corruption.

Friends, it’s time for change. It’s time that we, the taxpaying citizens of DeKalb county start paying attention. It’s time that we get involved in our government. It’s time that we speak up for what is right and just. It’s time to make a move. I hope each of you in this group will invite others to join. Much like the country, our county government is divided. Not by Dems and Repubs, but by those who think their job is to line their pockets with cash and those who really want what’s best for this county.

Enough is enough. Let’s make government work for us instead of us working for government. I hope to be able to keep this group up to date on issues that concern us all. But I will need help. So please, please do whatever you can. Even if it’s just to get to the polls on election day, we need change. We can do this! Thanks for all that I know you will do to help Reform DeKalb.
