Teresa Slayton disputes DeKalb County’s Statement

Unhappy Taxpayer and Voter citizen researchers purchased the sworn testimony of the whistleblower, Teresa Slayton, and the Chief Procurement Officer of Purchasing and Contracting, Talisa Clark, and the following information was revealed:

• The testimony provided information the public needs to see that supports evidence that disputes DeKalb County’s claims that Slayton’s termination was due to attendance, performance, etc.
• The evidence is outlined in I.-III., with page numbers and quotes. We are also attaching DeKalb County’s Human Resources Department emails showing Slayton’s Eligibility Status for Rehire and End of Temporary Employment.
• Did DeKalb County make false statements concerning claims against the whistleblower, Teresa Slayton, to discredit her name and reputation?
