Thomas Dempsey started this petition to Atlanta Pride

The board voted six to five in favor of removing board member Chris Jones at a members-only board meeting on Sunday, according to sources who attended. But a two-thirds majority was needed for the motion to pass, so Jones (top photo) remains on the board.

The latest development comes in the wake of Atlanta Pride’s former Board Chair Sean Cox resigning after failing to oust the group’s executive director, Jamie Fergerson. An attorney hired by the group also recommended in an internal report that Fergerson be replaced and that wholesale changes be made to a “clearly dysfunctional” board of directors.

Former volunteers and employees have also spoken out about mismanagement issues and a lack of transparency. The group hired a public relations firm to help manage the fallout that started in mid-October.

Atlanta Pride needs a true leader! CPA Chris Jones is that leader to fix the financial and managerial issues with Atlanta Pride.
