Downtown Swainsboro Community Watch started this petition to City of Swainsboro and

As a homeowner of course you have concerns over how your tax dollars are spent and the condition of your neighborhood and community. It is understood that, months ago, residents of the City of Swainsboro respectfully requested a forensic audit of the city's finances. They demanded this audit for good reason. The audit was approved by council months ago but has yet to take place. It is believed that the city could not secure a company to perform the audit and/or accept the bid or offer.

As the structure of our very own city hall, literally and figuratively, collapses around us, we, the community, are tired of the excuses. We are tired of funding intended to improve neighborhoods never reaching the intended neighborhoods. We are tired of watching our limited tax dollars go to waste or into the wallets and purses of people and/or businesses contracted to improve our surroundings yet our surroundings are not improved. We are tired of being put last as our homes, roads and business community crumble.

We need this audit so that we can get rid of everyone and everything that's standing in the way of the growth and success of the City of Swainsboro. We want to eliminate and prevent financial wrong-doing as well as representatives who put the people and their needs last. We want to make the City of Swainsboro a thriving, bustling, unified town where all people matter and are celebrated. People before trees and onions.

As opposed to whispering, wondering, worrying, and gossiping about this mysterious audit to be performed and why it hasn't happened yet, I thought it best to be transparent and simply (publicly) ask for an update and obtain signatures so that leaders can gauge just how relevant this matter is to their constituents... the homeowners, businesses and residents who call Swainsboro home.

Please sign this petition in support of the approved Forensic Audit of the City of Swainsboro's finances to take place and be publicly advertised again to secure an independent company to perform the audit. We demand that Mayor Schwabe and the City Council show us the money!!
