Amendment II
Byvibla Davis RN BSN
O ctober 3, 2014
Th e te n re asons De Kalb County ve ndors/contractors de mand Ke lvi n Walton and Ni na Hall b e fi re d
I, Viola Davis, with U nhappy Taxpayer & Voter, submit this 2
nd
amendment to the ethics complaint to
restore public trust against Kelvin Walton, former Director and Chief Procurement O fficer of the
Department of Purchasing and Contracting and Nina Hall, former Executive Assistant/Secretary to
CEO Burrell Ellis, and former Project Manager in the Watershed Department.
With the support of Restore DeKalb, we presented evidenced in a Restore Public Trust Ethics
Complaint, Amendment I, that provided evidence and testimony of sworn statements by both Kelvin
Walton and Nina Hall of lying to a special grand jury, taking money and/or service for personal gain,
and engaging in alleged public corruption in purchasing and contracting within a DeKalb County I
government department. To date, we have submitted over 350 pages of written documentation to i
justify Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall's removal from the taxpayers and voters payroll. I
DeKalb County has recently reorganized the Purchasing and Contracting Department that has
allegedly caused ten people, thus far, to lose their jobs. Yet, the taxpayers and voters continue to
finance the salaries of Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall. Why?
It's time for us to come to the reality that our local government has been in a crisis for far too long.
As a watchdog group, we have complained for years about a "cloud of corruption" that gives
DeKalb County a bad reputation as well as a black eye hindering economic development and
decreasing public trust.
Now we are faced with the serious issue of having local politicians indicted for illegal activity and
violation of their oaths of office. Yet, a few politicians continue with the same excuses that interfere
with the quality of life our community deserves. O ur county employees, police and firemen have
gone over five years without raises or even a cost of living increase until this last budget year. Wh n
will the crisis end? When will a high quality of life and increased public trust begin?
The title of an article, "Ten Reasons DeKalb Vendors Demand Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall B
Fired", was written to educate the public on facts they may not be aware of and to apply "heat" t I
1
I
I,
Interim Chief Executive O fficer L ee Mayto take action and fire two employees who have clearly
engaged in alleged criminal activity. The reasons stated in the article to fire Kelvin Walton and Ni a
Hall include:
1. Kelvin Walton funneled cash from vendors to a countyemployee who served on approximately
fifteen selection committees for DeKalb Countyprojects. The employee's name is Nina Hall,
formerlythe executive assistant/secretary to CEO Burrell Ellis.
http://www. scribd. com/doc/229061432/Restore- Pu blic- Trust- Ethics- Complaint- Amendment- 1
2. Kelvin Walton headed a department that practiced out- of- control nepotism and cronyism that
fueledI alleged criminal activity. Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall violated their job descriptions. Yet,
Interim CEO L ee Maysuspended Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall with payat a combined taxpayers'
payroll cost of approximately $228, 800.
•:. Kelvin Walton's job description violations include:
» O ne - Reviews procurement activities/documents for compliance with establishing I
purchasing procedures, federal, state, and local laws. Kelvin Walton violated the establish id
policyand procedure of Purchasing and Contracting and placed the taxpayers and voters 0
DeKalb Countyat risk for litigation.
» Two - Develops and maintains good business relationships with vendors' personnel throug
professional, impartial, and objective dealings with all suppliers, including problem resolutio
Hopie Strickland and Alessandro Salvo were denied a fair hearing to resolve their problems
that identified alleged criminal activity.
» Three - Directs the Contract Compliance division to ensure efforts are being made to foste
economic growth of MIWBE/L SBEs bydeveloping First Tier and Second Tier purchasing
opportunities. The alleged criminal activityadversely affected the minoritycompanies and
forced manyto engage in activitythat violated the policy, procedure, and L SBE ordinance.
» Four - Manages the Invitation to Bid and Request for Proposal process for the county.
Kelvin Walton's alleged criminal activitymade a mockeryof the bid process.
» Five - Mediates disputes between end users and supplies, when necessary. Hopie
Strickland and Alessandro Salvo were refused fair mediation .
•:. Nina Hall's job description violations include:
» O ne - Plans and organizes special events, public hearings, and meetings. Nina Hall refus d
to plan a meeting between Hopie Strickland and CEO Burrell Ellis because she allegedly
knew that Strickland made claims of bid- rigging, kickbacks, false checks, etc. Hall was no
hired to serve on the selection committees which allegedlyenabled Hall to carryout the wil
of Kelvin Walton in return for "kickback" funding. I,
II
II
II
~ Two - Responds to request for information from CEO and BO C and prepares reports
containing findings and recommendation. Reports on problems within the Purchasing and
Contracting Department were withheld from CEO Burrell Ellis.
3. Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall engaged in acts of alleged criminal activitythat produced conflicts
interest.
~ Three - Drafts correspondence for approval of superiors (CEO , Executive Assistant/CO O ,
BO C, etc. ) necessaryfor responding to citizens inquires. Hopie Strickland, a DeKalb Coun
vendor, went years with his complaints being ignored.
~ Four - Acts as liaison to citizen groups and special teams created to review special project .
Hopie Strickland was denied a meeting with CEO L ee Maybecause of the close relationshi
and alleged criminal activityKelvin Walton and Nina Hall managed to operate undetected.
4. Kelvin Walton, under oath, willfully lied multiple times during his MaySpecial Purpose Grand J u
Testimony and Walton admitted under oath that he lied to the Grand J ury.

5. Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall both refused to answer questions and pleaded the fifth, citing the
self- incrimination rule. Kelvin Walton refused to answer 343 questions for fear of self- incriminatio . !
Nina Hall refused to answer 30questions for fear of self- incrimination.

6. Kelvin Walton assisted elected officials and high staff officials in engaging in alleged criminal
activitycausing an investigation which involves the FBI, U S Attorney General, Department of
Revenue and the Inspector General.
7 . Nina Hall first denied ever receiving gifts or cash from vendors under oath. However, she
eventually confessed to receiving cash from Kelvin Walton that allegedly came from Michael
Hightower.

8. Kelvin Walton accepted a gift/service from a vendor of cash value without paying for the service.
http://www. scribd. com/doc/229061432/Restore- Pu blic- Trust- Ethics- Complaint- Amendment- 1
9. Vendors and employees' complaints that identified waste, mismanagement, alleged illegal activity
bycontractors and Kelvin Walton were ignored.
http://www. scribd. com/doc/212831368/Restore- Public- Trust- Ethics- Complaint
10. Board of Commissioners and DeKalb Countystaff members' conflicts of interest that were a I
• I
cause of action for major media investigations were incorrectly based on information and advice
given byKelvin Walton.
We are asking the Board of Ethics to send a message that we want the madness to end. The local
government should focus on the needs of the public, provide a high qualityof life, and restore public
trust.
We ar e dependi ng on the Boar d of Ethi cs to act and fi r e Kel vi n Wal ton and Ni na Hal l i f Inter i
CEO Lee May r efuses to do hi s job by ter mi nati ng them i mmedi atel y fr om the taxpayer s'
payr ol l .
How can DeKalb Countyreorganize and cause ten people to lose their job while forcing the
taxpayers and voters to continue to paytwo employees that have clearlyengaged in alleged illegal
activity? Whyhas InterimCEO L ee Maycontinued to keep Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall suspende
" wi th pay" after such conclusive evidence and written documentation exists?
We need a full forensic audit to expose the " tr ue" financial picture and shortfalls of Watershed an
Public Works Department. We need a full forensic audit of the Purchasing and Contracting
Department. We need an answer to the question, "Is there anycriminal activitythat should be
prosecuted"? Vendors and Contractors have requested a full criminal investigation bythe Federa
Bureau of Investigation into alleged criminal activityto include: I
• Bi d-r i ggi ng (See Exhi bi t A)
• Fal se Documentati on (evi denced by fr audul ent checks - See Exhi bi t B)
• Vi ol ati on of the Fal se Cl ai ms Act - (See Exhi bi t C)
• Tax Fr aud - (See Exhi bi t F)
U ntil we place restoring public trust as a top priority, taxpayers, propertyowners, homeowners a d
business owners will have increased lack of trust in our local government. We are aiking that th 1/
4
Board of Ethics recommend the Board of Commissioners, those that remain, to immediately
demonstrate the value theyplace in restoring public trust in our local government byenacting the
following changes:
• Establish and fund an Internal Auditor.
• Creation of a new anti- corruption unit within the DeKalb Police Department, in concert with I
the FBI and GBI.
• Support the Board of Ethics and maintain its independence.
We ar e aski ng our Boar d of Ethi cs to demonstr ate the val ue they pl ace i n r estor i ng publ i c
tr ust i n our l ocal gover nment by fi r i ng Kel vi n Wal ton and Ni na Hal l i f Inter i m CEO Lee May
r efuses to i mmedi atel y do so as we have r equested.
There are manyDeKalb Countytaxpayers and voters that value restoring public trust and removin
this "Cloud of Corruption". We need the Board of Ethics to take immediate action to restore public
thrust byremoving this "cloud of corruption".
Should CEO L ee Maycontinue to employ Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall with pay, we respectfully
request that the Board of Ethics exercise its given power to terminate Kelvin Walton and Nina Hall
based on our presentments to the Board of Ethics, such as:
1. Restore Public Trust Ethics Complaint - O riginal
2. 1st amendment - Restore Public Trust Ethics Complaint
