The DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Cleared of False Claim
DECATUR, Ga., – June 22, 2016 – “The DeKalb Chamber of Commerce has been cleared by the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission of any alleged role or involvement in unreported political spending. The accusation by the Georgia Ethics Watchdog was unfounded and the case was dismissed.
DeKalb Chamber cooperated with the Campaign Finance Commission’s investigation into records from a closed fiscal agent account.
In 2014 DeKalb Chamber made the decision to end its role as a fiscal agency and no longer acts as a fiscal agency, as it does not align with the organization’s mission to attract, promote and sustain business and economic development in DeKalb County. The account has since been closed and will remain closed.
DeKalb Chamber will move beyond this claim and continue to progress the business community.”
