The State Elections Board meets at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday May, 17 at the State Capitol, Room 341. Attorney General Chris Carr has added a consolidated consent order for Spalding County on 2017-073 AND 2020-157. While the State Elections Board was investigating Spalding for allegedly not having enough supplies on hand for voters, former Spalding County Elections Supervisor Marcia Ridley was hired by the City of Forest Park to handle its municipal elections supplies in 2021. The SEB referred Ridley to Carr’s office after supplies showing voter’s information allegedly were tossed in a dumpster.

This week’s public meetings

Here’s a look at which government bodies and major events are meeting this week. You can check The Clayton Crescent’s calendar for links to current agendas, past minutes, elected officials’ contact information, and venue information. Any quorum of public officials is a meeting that is open to the public under Georgia law. A governing body cannot declare an executive session to discuss personnel matters, litigation, real estate, unless it votes to do so during a public meeting. By law, all executive session discussions are subject to judicial review and all actions taken as a result of executive session discussions must be voted on during the public meeting.
