grigg3 3 years, 8 months ago on Cannon calls on CVB to split from Chamber

As a former Chamber President, it is true that most salaries are paid from city and county taxes, as well as motel/hotel taxes. For the Chamber Exec to use income earned from any other source is ridiculous. These are tough times, while employees all over the state of Georgia are losing jobs, hours, and income, we have an individual that is earning top dollar in a totally unproductive city and county, with the exception of gangs and crime mixed with the highest unemployment in the state, there is no reason for Atlanta salaries in Albany Georgia. As for Lisa, I have known her since she was 5 years old. She is an Albanian, and should be treated and respected for her integrity, love and concern for the city of Albany,and all whom she serves. Board of Directors, you need to take another look at the bigger picture here. Your Chamber President will eventually move on, Lisa won't. She will be here to serve her community in any way she can. Don't cut a fat hog for once, and do the right thing!
