Over the last three weeks we have three stories from the Atlanta-Journal-Constitution (AJC) about DeKalb government that were promptly buried and no critical analysis offered.
The three stories are remarkable in detailing the exploitation of DeKalb employees and the reduction of core services provided by DeKalb government to its citizens in favor of increased budgets for the CEO and BOC offices and staff.
That the AJC finds no issues with DeKalb government operating an exploitative "pay-day lender" scheme to its employees or increasing the budgets of the CEO and BOC political offices while simultaneously reducing the budget countywide 10 percent in expectation that Brookhaven will secede from DeKalb government, asks for some for valid questions that AJC reporters and editors refuse to provide.
The AJC is totally silent on implications of the last several weeks. If DeKalb government was lead by a different political party I can guarantee the AJC would rip into DeKalb government for good reason.
I don't care about the political affiliation of DeKalb's political leaders,
I do care about good government for DeKalb citizens and the employees and these last three stories beg for some investigation.
Why are DeKalb leaders refusing to negotiate with Brookhaven citizens?
Why are DeKalb politicians proposing raising their own office budgets and decreasing the budgets of core services to the citizens
Why do DeKalb politician refuse to reorganize and downsize as almost every county surrounding DeKalb has done in the current financial recession?
Why does the AJC increasingly act as the PR spokesperson for DeKalb government instead of offering critical analysis of a dysfunctional local government spiraling down to bankruptcy and rife with unethical deals that even the mentally challenged can recognize?
The AJC is failing DeKalb citizens, DeKalb political
leadership is doing even worse.
It is past time that DeKalb citizens elect solid leaders based upon qualification rather than politics or color of skin.
DeKalb government is failing and the sooner the citizens recognize and correct it the better off they will be.
The AJC is covering for DeKalb's piss-poor political leadership
Best of luck guys and gals
