CEO Burrell Ellis Ethics Complaint

Rhea Johnson, a DeKalb County resident, filed an ethics complaint against CEO Burrell Ellis late on Tuesday. 

As the Complainant, Johnson filed the ethics complaint to have CEO Burrell Ellis removed from office because the indictment and grand jury report documentation justify Ellis permanent removal from office.  Johnson said, “He violated the Code of Ethics”.

While the criminal indictment set a standard for conviction of a crime at “beyond a reasonable doubt”, the Code of Ethics conviction requires the standard of proof governed by the “preponderance of the evidence”.

Ms. Reha Johnson is to be commended for filing an ethics complaint against Burell Ellis. a) no Ellis should not be receiving any monetary compensation whatsoever. b) there should be but one purchasing agent on the books c) Ellis's secretary's salary is a scandle and a shame I would like to see Rockbridge Rd. repaired and repaved with the savings these funds wound provide .
