Press Release on Burrell Ellis Conviction:

We have a long history of working with people who believe in Burrell Ellis’ innocence on one hand, and his quilt on another. However, we live in a country where everyone is “innocent” until proven guilty.

Today, twelve women and men on the jury have spoken to say that Burrell Ellis is guilty of extortion (correction: attempted extortion) and perjury. We respect the jury’s decision.

We continue to demand full RICO investigations and criminal forensic audits to restore the public’s trust, transparency, ethics and accountability in DeKalb County government to include:
1. Watershed
2. Purchasing and Contracting
3. Local Small Business Enterprise (LSBE) program
4. Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)
5. Public Works
6. IT and IS
7. Members and staff of the DeKalb County governing authority

Until we place restoring public trust as a top priority, DeKalb County will struggle to heal from corruption.
