J. Max Davis Should Return Questionable Campaign Contributions

Sandy Murray calls on J. Max Davis to return questionable campaign contributions.

Today, I call on J. Max Davis to return all campaign contributions received from lobbyists and potential city vendors in the race to become Brookhaven’s first Mayor. Brookhaven should not tolerate even the appearance of corruption before the new city begins operations on December 17, 2012.

According to his latest financial disclosure report, J. Max Davis has accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from potential vendors and lobbyists, including JAT and Comdex Consulting. Additional contributions come from executives at Grice & Associates and Lowe Engineering.

Mr. Davis should put the voters of Brookhaven first and return these questionable contributions, that while legal, give an appearance of impropriety. Our research further shows that Davis additionally collected thousands more in campaign contributions from potential vendors while he was President of the ballot committee Brookhaven Yes, LLC. Davis collected $10,000 from Calvin, Giordano & Associates and $1,000 from UHY Advisors. We don’t want a mayor bought and sold for by those standing to profit from Brookhaven.

J. Max Davis should commit by actions, not empty promises, that he is truly interested in a Brookhaven government that is open and transparent.

jw, I will concede you respect the appropriate feathering of your own nest. I don't see any respect for the law. At least MY conscience is clear.

Hamburger, So this means we will be able to walk up to you and know that you are not a candidate for office by the fact that you will have in your hands the documents confirming that J Max has accepted $10k for his mayoral campaign? For this, Phil may show up in his white shorts.

Ms. Just Wondering, you need to clear all that with my agent, Mr. Phil! Please pass the yellow mustard!

Eddie, Will you commit to moving your business and from your house when J Max wins? Please?? We don't need any more of your ilk in the new city. The VAST majority of Brookhaven, just want a City they can be proud of, regardless of how they voted about whether the City should or shouldn't be. You have no shame and no honor, just as I expected. No matter how gracious others may be, admitting they may be wrong, you are still a hater. Now that is the kind of citizens we don't need. It harkens back to the days in Georgia we all aren't proud of, hate them for who they are (for the city), not because of who they are (Citizens of Brookhaven). I doubt Martin Luther King would be proud of your hatred and venomous spirit. Or are you just full of hatred and bitterness and there is no good that can come from the City of Brookhaven? I had the great opportunity to speak with Joseph E. Lowery yesterday, a man who was passionate about what he did and what he accomplished, however, not once did he ask me who I voted for or what I believed. Just a decent human being, gracious to all.

Hammy, I am confident Phil is ok with this. He will be happy to finally acknowledge that you are not a candidate for public office. I have a feeling the paperwork documenting the fact that J. Max has taken $10K in donations for his campaign may be lacking, so how shall I identify you at the Bat and Ball. Perhaps the grease will still be running on your chin? Or will it be the mustard on your shirt?: I will be looking for your empty hands tomorrow night. Just wondering, what type of wine will the Imlays be providing, I am rather picky about my Cabernet? I prefer Silver Oak.
