DeKalb County government is “rotten to the core”

The below letter was submitted to Interim DeKalb County CEO Lee May by former attorney Michael Bowers who is conducting an investigation of DeKalb County government at the request of May. Bowers stated that DeKalb County government is “rotten to the core.”

After the letter was made public, May released the following statement:

“I wholeheartedly disagree with the opinion that DeKalb County is rotten to the core. The overwhelming majority of DeKalb County employees are honest, decent, hard-working, and committed to public service.

We were aware of the underlying issues mentioned in Mr. Bowers’ letter. That is why we hired him to conduct a comprehensive review of county government operations to identify corruption, fraud, criminal activity, conflicts of interest, or abuse; with a report in 120 days.

The 120 days has come and gone, and it appears the only thing we have to show for it is a 2-page letter full of salacious – but vague – innuendo.

I was informed by Mr. Bowers today that a detailed report will be issued in 3 weeks that will provide me with a road map to reduce our risk exposure to waste, fraud and abuse.”
