“Effective immediately,” Boyer said in a written statement released Friday afternoon, “I am ordering a suspension of all P-card use by my office. Neither I, nor any of my staff, will use a P-card for any expenses whatsoever until the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners has adopted a clear policy for permissible use of the county P-cards.”
She announcement came as The Atlanta Journal-Constitution questioned interim Chief Executive Officer Lee May and commissioners about why her card hadn’t been revoked.
“In my 20-plus years of service to the people of DeKalb County,” Boyer said, “I have always been frugal, transparent, and accountable. I deeply regret that any of my actions have led to the misperception that I was abusing the trust the voters have placed in me. My record as a fiscal conservative and as an advocate for smaller and better government has taken decades to earn, and I hope that I will be judged on my entire record of service to the County.”
