    Shafer files disclosure; still waiting on 19 other legislators

     

    david shaferState Sen. David Shafer (R-Duluth) was the only delinquent legislator in the last week to file his personal financial disclosure statement, which was due July 1. Good for him, but not so much for the 19 other General Assemblers who still haven’t filed theirs. Elected officials make these disclosures so you know how they earn a living, what businesses they’re invested in and where they own property — all good things to know about people who are handling your money. Maybe no one cares but us, but it is the law. Some of these guys even voted for it. Here are the solons we’re still waiting on (three Republicans, 16 Democrats). The asterisk designates legislators who haven’t filed a disclosure for the previous year, either.

    State Senate:

    Jeff Chapman (R-Brunswick)
    John Meadows (R-Calhoun)
    Valencia Seay (D-Riverdale)
    *Curt Thompson (D-Tucker)
    Steve Thompson (D-Marietta)
    Dan Weber (R-Dunwoody)

    State House of Representatives:

    *Roger Bruce (D-Atlanta)
    Bob Bryant (D-Garden City)
    Toney Collins (D-Conyers)
    *Winfred Dukes (D-Albany)
    Hugh Floyd (D-Norcross)
    Carol Fullerton (D-Albany)
    Keith Heard (D-Athens)
    *Henry “Wayne” Howard (D-Augusta)
    Sheila Jones (D-Atlanta)
    *David Lucas (D-Macon)
    William Quincy Murphy (D-Augusta)
    Jay Shaw (D-Lakeland)
    Al Williams (D-Midway)
