So It Comes Down To Our Pension

So, it comes down to our pension. The residents of south DeKalb, aka Greenwood, want to opt out from the county and become a city because they think they are paying more then their fair share into our pension.
Nice of them to use our pension as a political football.
They claim south DeKalb can become self sustaining and viable. Have they driven down Candler Road lately?

Scrambling For Lifeboats in DeKalb

Having a corrupt commission and a superintendent of schools hurling the race card is not helping when it comes to citizens wanting to flee DeKalb's governance.

Greenhaven Passes Financial Test

South DeKalb city would become 2nd largest in Georgia.

  By Mark Niesse  mark.niesse@ajc.com  

     The proposed city of Greenhaven in South DeKalb would be financially solid, according to a study by the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government.  

   The report’s finding clears a path for the city to be considered by the Georgia General Assembly and, if approved by   state lawmakers, come to a vote by residents of the area.  

with about 294,000 residents and a median household income of $41,418, according to the study.

   The city would cover about 126 square miles, stretching from Atlanta’s eastern border near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and beyond Stone Mountain. It would encompass most of the southern half of DeKalb except for existing   cities and the proposed city of Stonecrest.  

   “We consider the results of the report to be a validation of our belief that we have a viable area that can now begin to focus on economic development within its boundaries,” said a statement by Concerned Citizens for Cityhood of South DeKalb.  

   Greenhaven’s projected revenue from taxes and fees exceeded its expenses for government services by more than $27 million, the UGA study said. The city would take in about $45.6 million annually   compared to costs of $18.4 million. 
   The city would offer three basic services: code enforcement, planning and zoning, and parks and recreation. DeKalb would continue to provide police protection, road maintenance and other services through existing taxes paid to the county.  

Greenhaven is one of six potential cities seeking approval by state lawmakers this year.

Enough is Enough. Or Is It?

Poor Elaine Boyer. She miss uses a credit card and it's off to federal prison for her.

And where is Stan "The Man" Watson? Probably at the Tanqueray Lounge sucking on a gin and juice, buggin counting his bones.

Alexander's Wish May Just Come True

Since the days of the justified killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri, Chief Cedric has hoped something of that magnitude would happen on his watch in DeKalb County.

He is fueling the fire of the protest of the shooting of Kevin Davis, who was armed and refused to surrender his weapon. Make bad decisions, bad things happen.

Cedric has called in the G.B.I. for an independent investigation. He is showing he has no confidence in the credibility's his own detectives.

Now he is releasing information to the press. Cedric, if you are going to have an independent investigation, then keep your freaking mouth shut!

Cedric doesn't need to be siding with the perpetrator's family before the investigation is complete. There can be only two reasons he would do such a foolish thing; incompetence and hoping the protest will explode to the levels of Ferguson so Cedric can feed his narcissism.

We pray the officer made a just decision, because Cedric does not have his back.

Paradise in the Ghetto

How could they commissioners not know of a large land deal involving the county's head of development authority?

Oh, that's right; incompetence.

How many commissioners are being investigated for corruption? All?

Trading Pension Contributions for Cronyism

We gripe about the county commissioners being corrupt. Some look to cityhood to make things better. But are things better?

The people scream they want control that the county doesn't share. One could come to the conclusion they are talking about the lack of sharing in the corruption.

The only difference we see between the county and cities is our pension not being funded and city politicians continue with their own corruption.

Where's My Report?

Thousands, if not tens of thousands of reports are missing in our wonder new RMS.

Who are the clowns behind this?

Fulton County recently discovered they were being hosed by their IT vendors to the tune 14.6 millions dollars.

The difference between DeKalb and Fulton? Fulton County called for an audit. DeKalb won't. Fulton Commissioners are angered and appalled. DeKalb Commissioners would be angered and appalled if there is an audit, with our commissioners track record of corruption and all.
