Dekalb CEO Debate



There's an important race on July 15 and it's not for U.S. Senate.

In the past 24 years, Dekalb County has had exactly three Chief Executive Officers. An extremely powerful but controversial position, many talk of altering or even eliminating the position in favor of a more traditional county chair. Yet, it is difficult to argue with that kind of stability. Once a CEO is elected, they tend to stay.

Since there is no Republican opposition in this race, the Democratic Primary will determine the County's next poobah. And no one seems to care.

Rusty of Georgia Podcast Network attended the recent CEO debate between candidates Burrell Ellis, Ann Kimbrough, Joe Bembry and Steen Miles (Stan Watson did not attend) and provides video of the entire event.

Above is the segment on the critical issue of the police funding. You can find the rest at Georgia Podcast Network. Watch. Learn. Choose wisely.

It's almost as important a job as mayor of Atlanta. No exaggeration.

Grady funding, MARTA funding, a $3 billion budget... nothing to sneeze at.

The AJC did run an endorsement and has run a couple of articles on the recent debates. Creative Loafing ran an article. There was nothing wrong with any of them exactly, but I get the feeling that the gravity of the job is lost on a lot of people.

Where do the candidates for CEO stand on the issue of food height?

Outgoing CEO says food is too high.
