UNMATCHED COVERAGE

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on suspicious Gwinnett County land deals and other projects – including a waste transfer station proposed by developer Mark Gary – in 2009. The newspaper found politically connected developers won County Commission approval for their projects, sometimes at the expense of taxpayers.

The following year, a special grand jury concluded Gwinnett spent millions of dollars too much for park land in deals that benefitted commissioners’ political allies. The newspaper has continued to follow developments, including bribery charges against former Commissioners Kevin Kenerly and Shirley Lasseter and an ongoing federal corruption investigation.
