Commissioners Elaine Boyer & Lee May Behind Effort To Eliminate DeKalb County CEO

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners will vote on December 15 on a resolution calling for a referendum to amend the county’s Organization Act to eliminate the elected Chief Executive Officer in favor of a  professional county manager appointed and directed by the County Commission.  If the resolution passes, it goes to the Georgia General Assembly. If legislators pass the legislation a referendum could be on the 2010 ballot so that DeKalb voters can decide.

County Commissioner Elaine Boyer spearheads the effort and is supported by Commissioner Lee May.  The proposal united former CEO Vernon Jones and Burrell Ellis and a number of citizens in opposition.
