Ethics Complaint Dismissed Against Dunwoody Mayor, Council

The complaints were dismissed at the board of ethics' Jan. 23 meeting.

Ethics complaints against Dunwoody's mayor and city council were dismissed this past week, complaints that are probably the last ones that will be considered under the city's old ethics ordinances.

According to the Reporter Newspapers, Dunwoody’s Board of Ethics dismissed the complaints during its Jan. 23 meeting.

The complaints came from resident Joe Hirsch. He claimed officials violated Georgia’s Open Records Act by failing to provide timely, complete records when he requested information about a private meeting of the city council. The subject of that meeting were ethics complaints against Mayor Mike Davis, Councilwoman Adrian Bonser, and the city council.

On Jan. 14, the city council approved a 90-day moratorium on ethics complaints while officials revise the ordinances.

In early December, ethics charges against Bonser that she leaked priviliged information about a city property deal were dismissed.

After last year's controversy, the city council decided to look at Dunwoody's current ethics ordinances to determine if any revisions were needed.

According to the ethics board, Hirsch's complaint failed to cite the section of the ethics code that he believed had been violated. Additionally, the complaint was not filed within six months of the alleged violation, nor was it notarized before being presented to the board.

Bonser is guilty. She got off because the current group of idiots that make up the Ethics Board would rather stay at home and watch Oprah instead of the job they volunteered to do. They kept delaying for 9 months hoping it would just go away. That let bobble head Bonser off through mediation. At least the mayor got her to admit she lied in her letter of apology, even though she turned around and denied it all again on Facebook.

Maybe Joe H can't read the rules...maybe he should be cited for frivolous complaint as provided for in the ordinance? Sick him!
