Kwanza Hall, Atlanta City Councilman, Atlanta mayoral candidate: "It is disappointing to hear the allegations that Adam Smith violated the public's trust by accepting cash from a construction vendor bidding for city contracts. He will have his day in court and I am fully confident in our legal system."
Felicia Moore, Atlanta City Councilwoman, candidate for city council president: "I was of course very disappointed to hear about Adam Smith. It highlights the ongoing need at City Hall for more steps towards transparency and accountability, and it's why I'm proud to be the only City Councilmember to have passed transparency legislation, and will continue to fight to move the ball down the field towards and more responsive and open City Hall."
Alex Wan, Atlanta City Councilman, candidate for city council president: "I suspect there will be more to come as this continues to unfold. Frustrating for those of us that are in no way associated with this, but I'm anxious for all to be revealed so that we can really go after reforming our contracting processes."
Cathy Woolard, former Atlanta City Council President, Atlanta mayoral candidate: "It's a real tragedy for the city of Atlanta and there is more to come. This is another ugly chapter in the history of bribery and corruption in this city."
