Eugene Walker Resigns From DeKalb Development Authority

The Champion is reporting that the chairman of the DeKalb Development Authority, Eugene Walker, has resigned from his position.

Walker came under recent pressure for accepting $18,000 in campaign contributions from the Sembler Company during the last election cycle after Sembler came a-callin’ for a $52 million tax break on the Town Brookhaven development.

Personal note, Thank you Representative Mike Jacobs for your leadership on the Sembler Town Brookhaven Abatement issue. It was much appreciated.
