On Wednesday, September 20th, 2017, "FBI agents raided a Sandy Springs office building. Armed and wearing flak jackets, they headed to the third floor to the headquarters of the PRAD group. The PRAD group, which touts its work at the Atlanta airport on its website, is an architectural, engineering, and construction firm that has done work with the city of Atlanta since for decades."

On Monday, October 2, 2017, Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Keisha Lance Bottoms agreed to return "10 contributions amounting to $25,700 from engineering firm PRAD Group, its’ executives and their family members, according to an analysis of campaign finance records by the Georgia News Lab."

On Thursday, October 26, 2017, through an intermediary, Natalyn Archibong provided scans of three purchaser copies of cashiers checks, in the amount of $8,500. 

  • PRAD Design - $2,500
  • Lorhrasb Jafari - $3,500
  • Nancy Jafari - $2,500

Your constituents hereby request that you follow the precedent set by Council Member Lance Bottoms and return the remaining $25,000 you have received from individuals and entities associated with the PRAD Group.

Atlanta City Council District 5 needs to know that you are free from corrupt influences.
