Former DeKalb County parks director Becky Kelley presented “shocking evidence” of an overt pattern of racial bias by then-CEO Vernon Jones and others, a federal appellate court ruled Friday. Four current and former parks employees thus will get their day in court, or increased leverage to settle their claims out of court.
Monday’s firing of the DeKalb County recreation director, ostensibly for messing up entries for a state swim meet, actually may have been seven years in the making. Marilyn Boyd Drew was dismissed after her department missed several opportunities to enroll 67 kids in a statewide swimming competition to be held this weekend. But Drew has been accused of job discrimination, based on reverse racial bias, almost as long as she’s been running the department.
