Ethics board finds Joiner in violation



The ethics board closed evidence and adjourned to deliberate findings in a closed session before providing a final recommendation.

The additional documentary evidence Fields submitted included:

• an online copy of the invoice Joiner submitted to Digital Bridges concerning the trip to the National Main Street conference in Iowa;

• check-in rosters for GMA classes;

• training policies from the GMA website;

• email conversations with the Georgia College Foundation and the Carl Vinson Institute for an open records request; and

• a copy of the Riot Act.

“I am relieved at the findings. Now it’s in the hands of the council to act, so I will hold my breath and anxiously wait for them to lead and take action,” Fields said after the ethics board provided its recommendation. “I had hoped that this would be their findings. I worked pretty hard and put a lot of time and attention into this. It would’ve been pretty heartbreaking if they would’ve found otherwise.”
