Commissioners Say No To Burrell Ellis' GM Plant Scam

Burrell is an idiot, so says the commissioners. They have voted against the GM plant scam concocted by Ellis.

Elaine Boyer is pro police. She would like to she some of the money spent on a new police academy.

Connie Stokes voted for the scam, and we understand. It takes and idiot to know and idiot.

But we are puzzled why Kathy Gannon voted for it. Maybe she will explain herself.

The deal just got voted down. To gain some insight into this, look at Ellis official bio on the county website. Take note of the law firm he is a partner at, Epstein Becker Green. Now take note of what law firm was to handle the legal work on this project, which would go into the millions, Epstein Becker Green. Lastly, take a look at CEO's bio and see what his specialty in his law practice is. Real estate development law.

Really, Mr. Ellis are you living in your own world? We are on the verge of a recession. There are thousands of closed businesses in the same area. Were you trying to create a vacant Atlantic Station. Or did you have your little greedy pockets in the deal. Hummmmmmm. Here's a plan actually use the money to benefit your employees who yall have been neglecting since you have been in Office. This board of Commisioners is the laughing stock of Government in Ga.

Total coincidence I'm sure. When is either DA Gwen Keyes or the US Attorney or at least the State Ethics Commission going to look into this. The press has not covered any of this either, just like the AJC was terrified of Vermin.

Anon 1, good research.

This guy is just another Vernon Jones.

Isn't this the sort of thing that the DeKalb Schools Superintendant was just charged with? What is the difference here?

This GM Plant deal is Ellis' version of Vernon's "Green Space" BS - where he bought up intended green space and sold it to the county without official appraisals, making him millions. Apparently there's only one reason to become DeKalb CEO - to make yourself rich (or richER). It's a disservice to the citizens and employees of DeKalb County and it needs to be stopped. It's embarrassing.

To the blog moderator: please do your homework. Boyer voted against the merit increases 2 years ago.

She's got her head up ToBrow's arse...she's not interested in PD.

I have been a resident of DeKalb County for more than 50 years. Of course, years ago the Elected Officials had “INTEGRITY” and displayed a high level of “INTELLIGENCE and PROFESSIONALISM”. “THAT IS NOT THE CASE TODAY”!



I attended a meeting last night with the C.E.O.'s appointment of Commissioner Connie "INCOMPETENT" Stokes and one of his Administrative Assistant, Betty "Formerly attached to "Atlanta Housing Authority-Got Fired Due To Missing Funds" Davis , to spearhead a Code Enforcement Task Force. Are the two of you at your AGE, not tired of being “PIMPED” all your life? STOP BEING SO EASILY INFLUENCED TO DO WAHTEVER, IN ORDER TO GET ATTENTION! YOU BOTH LOOK AND SHOULD FEEL AS YOU APPEAR, “THE LITTLE ANT ON THE EXPRESSWAY AS TOLD TO YOU AT THE BOC MEETING MONTHS AGO!



It was apparent that this meeting was not well "Well Organized or Well Planned Out". "YOU PEOPLE", are a "DISGRACE" to your own "RACE". “GET RID OF THAT CRAB MENTALITY! This was so PATHETIC!



When in "AMERICA" as you and I know it, are we not able to or (ALLOWED) to "MERELY RESPOND and/or "DEFEND" or shall I say, “JUST TELL THE TRUTH” to dispel comments by EDUCATED FOOLS AND PEOPLE WHO CAN NEVER STAND ON THEIR OWN MERITS-BUT WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING IN LIFE BUT FOLLOWERS (CITIZENS), DRUNKEN FORMER EMPLOYEE, AND OTHERS WITH NO LIFE AND ONLY SPEAKS BECAUSE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER PROVIDED AIR IN THEIR LUNGS!



LORD HAVE MERCY ON YOU ALL!



THE OFFICIALS AND ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL THAT SAT WITH “NO REPONSE” TO SUCH “IGNORANT RESPONSES” LAST EVENING SHOWED THAT THE COUNTY IS BEING MORE TRANSPARENT. WE SAW THE TRANSPARENCE OF “UNPROFESSIONAL LEADERS WITH NO INTEGRITY AND LESS THAN AN OUNCE “IF THAT” HONESTY!



I HAVE UTILIZED THE PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS TO ERADICATE CODE VIOLATIONS WITHIN MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS. THEY ARE VERY EFFECTIVE AND WE ALWAYS GET RESULTS! I COMMEND THE CODE ENFORCEMENT STAFF FOR THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS THROUGHOUT UNINCORPORATED DEKALB COUNTY ! THEY CANNOT CHANGE THE MENTALITY OF PEOPLE OR MAKE THEM STOP VIOLATING THE CODE! CAN YOU? “MR. EDUCATED FOOL”? IF YOU COULD, THEN WHAT I SHOULD HAVE HEARD FROM YOU LAST NIGHT IS THAT “I” PULLED MY “FOLLOWERS” TOGETHER AND WAS ABLE TO ASSIST CODE ENFORCEMENT BY:

· APPOINTING 2-3 OF “MY FOLLOWERS” FOR EACH STREET IN THE SO CALLED “ SOUTH DEKALB NEIGHBORHOOD COALITION”, TO SPEAK WITH EACH HOMEOWNER OR OCCUPANT, ABOUT HOW “WE” CAN CLEAN UP OUR COMMUNITIES” OR DID I MISS THAT PART? I DON’T THINK SO, BECAUSE I SAT IN DISBELIEF AND WATCHED THE ENTIRE “DOG AND PONY SHOW”!

· TAKE ALL OF THAT “NEGATIVE ENERGY” DISPLAYED LAST NIGHT TO ASSIST THE GOVERNMENT. IT’S CALLED WORKING TOGETHER! ALL IT TAKES IS A PHONE CALL TO REQUEST FOR HELP AS I HAVE DONE FOR YEARS!



PLEASE KNOW THAT, “YOU DO NOT” AND I REPEAT, “YOU DO NOT “, REPRESENT ALL OF THE “ SOUTH DEKALB COMMUNITIES”! YOU REPRESENT “YOURSELF AND PEOPLE YOU CAN INFLUNCE! OOPS! I ALMOST FORGOT, “YOU ARE ALSO BEING USED BY PEOPLE WITH AN AGENDA”! I GUESS THAT MEANS, “YOU ARE BEING PIMPED AS WELL”!



AS I CAN RECALL, NO ELECTED OFFICIAL SPOKE ON BEHALF OF PUBLIC SAFETY CODE ENFORCEMENT! THIS IS SO SAD! ESPECIALLY SINCE NUMEROUS PEOPLE IN MY COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS MYSELF, HAVE CALLED YOU TO COMMEND THEM FOR “THE GREAT JOB CODE ENFORCEMENT DOES, WITH THE MANPOWER THEY HAVE”!



YES, YOU CAN APPROVE ADDITIONAL POSITIONS AND SAY WHAT IS ALLOCATED. HOWEVER, DID YOU ALL ALSO APPROVE THE FUNDS TO FINANCE THOSE POSITIONS? MMM……



WAKE UP PEOPLE WE ARE WATCHING ALL OF YOU! YOUR FORMER CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER PROBABLY FLIPPED IN HIS GRAVE NUMEROUS TIMES LAST NIGHT!



WATCHING!

After reading the comment from the person that attended the meeting, I really thing that deserves it's own subject/heading.

The C.E.O. need to read this to see who is speaking on his behalf!

This was so sad!
