News Release

Statement on GBI

ATLANTA –  The City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Communications issued the following statement.

“GBI agents came to City Hall today to coordinate meetings with City employees. The agents did not retrieve any documents or conduct any interviews. They also did not deliver any subpoenas. Contrary to reports, the City Attorney did not ‘sneak out’ of the building, but instead attended a pre-planned lunch meeting out of the office during the unannounced visit of the agents. Outside legal counsel, Attorneys General Sam Olens and Thurbert Baker, will be working with the GBI to provide all requested documentation and coordinate interviews accordingly.”
