Julian Bene started this petition to Chair of Fulton County Commission, Georgia Fulton Commission Chair Robb Pitts

Fulton County's Development Authority (DAFC)  is clearly off track.  The AJC's expose has shown it's a rogue agency, rife with self dealing.*  Worse, it's been doling out hundreds of millions of breaks on Atlanta's tax dollars for projects in hot markets that will be built without abatements.  Both Atlanta City Council and School Board have unanimously asked DAFC to stop granting tax breaks in the city, but DAFC refuses to listen.

We call on Fulton Commission Chair Rob Pitts to appoint a reformer to his slot on the DAFC board without delay. She or he would must be charged to work with other new board members to clean up board practices and to refuse developer tax breaks in hot city markets.  

We need to seize this opportunity to reform DAFC. The public cannot wait any longer for a new DAFC board majority.
