Former Georgia State Ethics Commission Director Rick Thompson on HB 142

Click here to listen to Rick Thompson, former Director of the Georgia State Ethics Commission and current Founder and Managing Partner of RTA Political Management Group.

Via email, the former State Ethics Commission Director, who also is the Founder and Managing Partner for RTA Political Management Group observed:

“HB 143 will be free up much needed resources for the Campaign Finance Commission. The bill allows the local election authority to consolidate the elections and the disclosure filings under the same umbrella and regain local control and transparency.”

“The bill exempts city and county candidates who will not raise or spend more than $2,500 from the burden of filing complicated disclosure reports. With these provisions enacted, the Commission should be able to immediately become more effective and efficient in carrying out its duties.”

Thompson’s firm handles the preparation, evaluation and filing of disclosures for candidates serving at all levels of government.

[Note: if Thompson ever gets any business from my frequent name-dropping, he'll bring me a brown paper-sack stuffed with used dollar bills.]
