About the Georgia Transparency Project (from AtlantaUnfiltered.com):
“State legislators say they welcome transparency regarding their personal finances – corporate and real estate holdings, government contracts and the like. But who decides what constitutes transparency, or how diligently to check whether they’re truly telling us what we’re entitled to know? They do. Just as war is too important to be left to the generals, transparency is too important to be left to the politicians. That’s where the Georgia Transparency Project comes in”. Read more
About Jim Walls (in his own words):
I’m an ink-stained wretch. Or a reporter’s editor. Or clunky and unpolished. More likely, all three and then some. I won’t even tell you what my reporters used to call me. Ask them if you run into them.
I was a print journalist for 38 years, the last 28 at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, primarily as an editor. I ran the Gwinnett County bureau and the suburban, city and night desks at various times. I was privileged to work with a team of very talented investigative reporters for my last 12 years at the AJC.
When the newspaper trimmed its staff in 2008, I took a buyout and prepared to change careers. But plans changed as I watched the newspaper business implode along with the public service journalism that I devoted my career to. So Atlanta Unfiltered was born to support and promote investigative journalism in Georgia.
