About That Story on the City of Atlanta’s Personnel Policies

Shirley Franklin’s response to the recent WSB-TV story by Richard Belcher

“I just returned to Atlanta from a business trip. I have no inclination to be engaged in a public debate about my service as mayor. My record of integrity and honesty is well documented. I am not aware of any instances that mirror the actions that have been described in the current coverage of employee payouts. If there is any question about the legality of any of my actions or decisions during nearly twenty one years in public office, then the responsible authorities should investigate and take the appropriate action.”

    “My record of integrity and honesty is well documented”

    Unfortunately so is your steadfast defense of the progenitor of a decade’s worth of academic genocide in Atlanta, Beverly Hall. As we heard today, not only did Hall NOT investigate REPORTED cheating, she fired teachers who reported the cheating to her, and did NOT investigate instances of racial harassment toward that teacher.

    When you stand by education charlatans like Beverly Hall is DOES “document your integrity” but I would suggest that it does it in ways you probably don’t want to be known for.

    I read the article on WSB-TV’s website and found no mention of any activities before 2012. I took that as no criticism of your performance.
    Why are you making this statement?

    This was in response to a story Richard Belcher did on Wednesday.

      I was unable to find the on-air clip. Did Belcher state something different from the article on WSB-TV’s website? As I posted, the website article mentions nothing before 2012.
