RE: Statement Concerning GBI Investigation

 

I vehemently deny the allegations being made by Dr. Holloway and a few fellow commission board members. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) conducted a thorough investigation into the matter and then issued warrants as the result of their findings.

 

I am a 23-year law enforcement veteran and now Chairman of Clayton County Board of Commissioners.  I take these matters seriously.  I would never intentionally do anything that would disgrace my name or standing in the community that I work, live, and play in. I do plan to pursue civil action against Dr. Holloway and anyone else who chooses to purposely lie on me or scandalize my name.

 

I was made aware of the alleged charges involving Dr. Katrina Holloway, my assistant, by the GBI in reference to a report I filed with them about a letter I received that I believed was a personal threat against me in June of 2022.

 

I was very disappointed and disturbed by what they reported to me as it related to their investigation.

 

I want to make it clear that I DO NOT condone any such alleged nor illegal actions by any employee and no one is above the law.

 

As a result, and in line with our civil services rules, I have taken what I deem as necessary and appropriate personnel action. Dr. Holloway is no longer an employee of Clayton County effective January 24, 2023.

 

This matter is in the hands of the GBI and any further inquiries should be directed to them.
