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.
