Center for Public Integrity THRUSTS Georgia 26 Positions Forward in its Newest Ethics Ratings!!

In 2012 The Center for Public Integrity touted Georgia as the “Worst Score in the Country” at number 50. We know government moves at glacial speeds. Combine this with severe dysfunction in Georgia’s Ethics Commission between 2012 and 2015; it is commendable that any movement occurred.

Nevertheless, The Center for Public Integrity has found cause to propel Georgia from number 50 to number 24! Is Georgia perfect? Not by any means, at least not yet. However, we should not overlook the success, as it is a remarkable start.

The Georgia Legislature listened. The Campaign Finance Commission cleaned house. A credible Executive Secretary, Stefan Ritter, has been canonized and we are off to the races! Ritter is bold and is clear in his statements on how he intends to instill law, order and public confidence. Additionally, he is developing a modern, technology driven auditing system, which will track, flag and identify likely abuse.

Many critics will grandstand and categorize this rating as dismal; perhaps because that is what drives subscriptions.

Anytime a state government agency propels forward 26 positions, you must recognize it is on the right track. History will the judge, but I believe under Stefan Ritter’s guidance, the current Members of this State’s Legislature and our strong Governor, the Georgia Campaign Finance Commission will maneuver itself as a nationwide leader for all to benchmark against.
