ATLANTA — Today, Stacey Abrams released two years of state and federal tax returns in conjunction with a plan to foster the highest standards for ethics and transparency as governor of Georgia.
The Ethics and Public Integrity Plan outlines Abrams’ commitment to publish her daily schedule, protect workers from harassment, protect our data and services, and additional measures to ensure Georgians have a government working in their interest.
“I am committed to expanding on my proven track record of ethical and transparent leadership to build a state where all Georgians can trust the office of the governor to serve their best interests,” said Democratic nominee for governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams. “I am proud to be the first candidate in the race to demonstrate my commitment to ethics and transparency by releasing my taxes, as well as a comprehensive ethics and public integrity platform.”
